Xmas Party 1988

For many years, prior to my illustration career, my main outlet for creativity was the annual xmas party invitation. We had started hosting parties in 1984, and guessing from clues in this invitation, I'm guessing this one was from 1987 or 1988. I had thought most of these were lost to the ages, until I unearthed a cache of them in my Father's keepsake drawer when he passed away in 2014. This one was printed on red and green astrobrite paper, glued together with a gatefold. Above is the outside of the invite, and below is the center spread.
