'Twas the night before Christmas
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not an idea was stirring as I tapped at the mouse.
The keyboard was hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that a concept might soon appear there.
The sketches were rattling around in my head, while visions of photoshop pranced overhead.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the screen to see what was the matter.
I turned off my screen, I closed down flash, tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature tablet with pixels and beer!
I whistled and shouted and tried hard to mix in;
"Draw! Vector and Pixel!
Paint! Neezer! and Vixen!
Draw! Marquee! and Lasso!
Paint! Cloner and Blitzen!"
I muttered some words and kept on at my work, drawing their outlines; then turned with a smirk.
The wacom went flying, the team gave a whistle. The beer suds went flying like flames from a missile.
And then I exclaimed, ere they drove out of sight, Happy Holidays All! And to all a good night!
