Every year, I select a different character to be portrayed on my Christmas card. Last year, Aroha took the honours (and the Christmas lights) and so - despite her insistance, she would not be depicted this year! And thus I studied my other characters.
Whilst I was busy trying to determine if I should illustrate Hemlock or Aurelia, Butterscotch or Fiantrana; I turned around and saw that Tiriki had sneakily dismantled my Christmas tree!
Thus, Tiriki the cheeky kea - a minor character in "Aroha's Grand Adventure" has now earned the distinction of being the 2011 Christmas character.
