The two court jesters again ... in the style of this card.

Father repeated characters, themes and ideas that worked before (sound familiar?) . He used the jesters, the butler and Christmas mice multiple times. You turn out dozens of cards year after year, you sometimes repeat yourself. We're putting up more jesters instead of more Santa Clauses. Jesters, at least, have a wider array of colors.

Here are more Ralph Hulett Christmas cards.

Hello Steve:
Nice layout and design.
Very nice work. What size was used in these cards. I'd like to see the real piece, and what materials were used.
Old tradional assistant, sign painter, tv & movies props and graphics guy.
Merry Christmas.

As I recall, they were 8 1/2 x 11 on white board; I'll confirm this with my surviving parent and get back to you.

Why not publish/print these as boxed Xmas cards available for purchase?
These are so great-- they'd sell like hotcakes!
Maybe there's a way to sell them online and print on demand as orders come in(as self publishers do with books) so your inital outlay would be minimal.
Think about it for next year?..This artwork is such a delight.Thanks soo much for posting!
