Post-Santa please return the sleigh

The reindeer are back in the pasture and Santa's delivery job is thankfully over for this year so he returns the sleigh to Colonial Parking, near the Potomac in Washington, DC. A small cruise ship (background) is ready to take Santa, his family, and all the helpers on a reward journey to some nice slow warm place. 

This drawing was an assignment when I was working at an architectural illustration company. It was the holiday card for Colonial Parking, which manages a lot of parking lots in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area. The kiosk is especially appealing to me; I love tiny buildings like that. Too small to live in, though, it's just an office.

Black ink with technical pens on illustration board, 8 1/2" x 7 1/2", c. 1989.
