The Ghosts of a Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol,  the famed novel by Charles Dickens, tells the oft retold tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, a gloomy man visited by spirits from the past, present and future. A story of redemption, the novel also serves as a story of Christmas. Drawing inspiration from this tale, I enlisted Channing as a model to help me represent the personalities & traits of each of the three ghosts.  The ghosts are reflections of  memories, feelings, and projections of an evolving life: The melancholy, regret and longings of the past. The joy, celebration and in-the-moment frivolity of the present. The uncertainty, anticipation, fear and ultimately the maleable-opportunity of the future. Tell me which is your favorite in the comments below.

Men’s courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead, but if the courses be departed from, the ends will change. Say it is thus with what you show me!- – Ebenezer Scrooge (Charles Dickens)
