Happy New Year!

One of the blogs that I follow is Lines and Color.
Each year for the New Year, 
he posts illustrations from
J.C. Leyendecker.
Leyendecker is said to have originated the contemporary idea of
representing the new year as a baby, starting with his New Year's cherub
that welcomed 1907 on a December, 1906 issue of the The Saturday Evening Post.
I decided to join in the tradition and found this little guy
who I am sure grew up to be a Knight in Shining Armor! 

Happy New Year!
