The first of our 'Down Under Summer' series. There is just no getting away from his own magical attraction, for our Kristophe. The bikini doesn't help, of course.

During the Christmas break, we received many requests for more summer images, to take away the winter blues. We gave it some thought, and decided we could honor our friends in Australia and other parts south of the Equator, by slipping in a few summery images. We hope it will lift everyone's spirits, no matter where they are located.

ETA: The original image was the not up to snuff, so we have subsequently replaced it, with this one. There is a subtle difference between the two, but it did make a difference to us, so the change was made.

Characters created with pencil, outlined in ink and then touched up in Photoshop. The background was created in Photoshop.
