Advent Calendar 2011 - Colors, Words, and Sources

For each of the 29 drawings in my Advent Calendar 2011, here are the Copic colors (and any other materials) that I used, the words, and the sources for quoted words. Unless noted otherwise, everything is drawn and written with black Copic multiliners, generally 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3.
