And here's the full set:

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
10 11 12
13 14 15
16 17 18

Some Notes:

2,3 - Original art by illustrator Patience Brewster
9,10 - Original art by illustrator Edward Gorey
11 - Original art by Katsushika Hokusai (1760—1849)
14 - Original art by cartoonist Patrick McDonnell ("Mutts")

All the usual caveats apply: don't hotlink, download 'em to your own system, please credit as appropriate.

These are so pretty! I will take one (or maybe more) to use, thank you very much! (I'm still deciding between 2, 7, and 14. And 17. And 16. They're all so great!)

I'm gonna take your Hanukah icon...because there are folk out there who are annoyed with the "Christocentric" idea of Yuletide, if you can believe it (I'm not one of them, just a happy Jewish girl who couldn't care less). So in honor of the "others," I will snag that one! Thanks for having the foresight to make it.
chomiji

Hee! I'll be lighting candles on my own hanukiyyah in December ... but given that Yule was a pagan holiday, I feel that the name of the challenge has come to imply more of a solstice-y "strike a light against the darkness" theme. And at their roots, Hanukah and Christmas (and New Years, both solar and lunar) are solar/fire festivals ... .

snagged #10 - it surprises me, I didn't think Gorey liked Christmas (or much of anything)
chomiji
Oct. 11th, 2007 09:58 pm (UTC)

Well, I think Gorey was a curmudgeon with a soft marshamallow center, myself ...   XD

Enjoy!

Heh, 15 and 18 (as well as 7 and 12) are from the same scanned-in holiday card! Whichever you choose, use it in good health ...   ;-)
