My brother’s fiancée is a huge Nightmare Before Christmas fan. We’re talking huge fan – she’s got more Nightmare paraphernalia than Ottawa has civil servants. So this year I decided to contribute to her collection by making her a Jack mosaic. I chose the simplest design I could find, and even once I got it drawn on the plate I had to simplify it even more – Jack’s mouth just had way too many lines! Damn him! Even though this piece was a bit of a challenge, it did have one advantage: if I can’t come up with any gift ideas for her next year, I can always follow up with a Sally mosaic!
