A makeshift lightbox

Doesn't it look festive for this Christmas time?
I needed to trace the first draft inking of a picture onto a new piece of Bristol so that I could add something, but I don't have a lightbox (they're expensive!) and in this winter, the windows aren't very bright and not for very long--the sun goes down at four. So I made do with this!

Half of a storm window atop a metal breadbox of Christmas lights. It got hot very quickly, so I had to take breaks in my tracing to let it cool down. Needs must!

Necessity is the mother of invention. Merry Christmas.
