Bruce with Santa

This is a one-of-a-kind illustration that was commissioned to accompany my Christmas poem (soon to be published book) “An Urban Account of a Visit from Santa Claus.” 

Coming soon:

A new Christmas book that is sure to be a welcome addition to your holiday reading.

 Inspired by the timeless Christmas classic “The Night Before Christmas,” B.W. Van Alstyne offers up an entirely new poem that features an Urban setting, a Black Santa Claus, and eight new reindeer. With beautiful color illustrations by Elena Albanese, “An Urban Account Of A Visit From Santa Claus,” will surely become a new Christmas classic that will entrance and delight children and adults every year!
