Mr. Hulett painted cards in a variety of styles, whatever suited the subject matter. And he always noted the cards that sold best (this was back in the days of royalties paid to artists designing cards) and would come back to that approach and subject in subsequent years. No fool he.

In a lot of the years he designed and painted Christmas cards, he derived nearly as much income from this outside line of work as he did from his 9-5 gig at Walt Disney Productions.

Here are more Ralph Hulett Christmas cards.

Awesome painting Steve..

I wish you'd take the opportunity to give us some tales of your father working at Disney. Also, how 'bout some tales of your own there?

Hey Steve, what did you think of Bolt now that it's out? I know you couldn't really say anything while it was in production.

Oh and I was wondering if you know if the "style" of animation that Disney is using on Rapunzel is going to change now that Glen Keane is no longer directing it. I hope not, it looks so beautiful.

Keep up doing the good thing, fightin' the man!
