Look at these faces. Clearly there’s some merry mischief-making going on at MauiTime, today. Why? It’s time to design our infamous Christmas cards!
So, friends of the paper, you’ve been warned — send a welcoming party to your mailbox because the coolest postcard you’ll get all season is on its way…
For last year’s holiday card, we were zombified by artist Len Peralta (lenperalta.com / @jawboneradio on Twitter), the madman who illustrated our Halloween issue cover/”The Seven Scariest County & State Elected Officials” story. That killer cover helped earn us a 2010 AAF Pele Award of Merit and a first runner-up in the 2010 AAN Awards for cover design.
This year, our first idea was thwarted by the lack of bad holiday sweaters at Savers. Thank goodness, or we wouldn’t have ended up with the gem we did. We won’t leak it here — you’ll just have to wait until they’re signed, sealed and delivered — but here are photos from the behind the scenes.
