Guy's first successful Christmas drawing was in third grade. His teacher, Mrs. Passarelli, had instructed the class to draw Christmas trees. Upon seeing Guy's drawing, she stopped him and told him, 'That's perfect, don't do anything more! Don't touch it anymore!' She held Guy's drawing up to the class as an example of how a Christmas tree should look - an encouraging first encounter with an art director.
