In November a brilliant and dear friend approached me about doing a project for the Smithsonian. No big deal.

She was looking to do something different and unique for their holiday card and had seen a time lapse video I had done of my poppies. And there it started- a time lapse video of a drawing to incorporate the Smithsonian castle, with all its hallmark details in a holiday setting, using a song from the Smithsonian Folkways collection.

3 Tombo markers, 2 GoPros, and a partridge later…this was what we came up with.
