# 1 North Pole

Sometimes Mary Engelbreit's work can be a bit sugary, but sometimes it's sweetened just right. Another bright Engelbreit for Christmas, a season invented just for her to illustrate.

Well, it is sweet. Maybe a bit too sweet. Not a lot of hard edges.

M.D., what do we want from a scene of Santa's workshop? Crumbling bricks? Broken glass? A meth lab? Santa himself looks like Dumbledore, before there was a Dumbledore.

Hi Thom,
I laughed reading your reply! I enjoy Mary Engelbreit, a lot. Some of her work is absolutely a perfect balance of cuteness and artistry, and some of it leans over the edge; but sweet is good, especially at this time of the year! Many of her Santas and elves are the best of the best, and her sentiments are sincerely expressed.
