Santa




It's probably not the right time of the year, but since i'm posting stuff from the Lectrr-archives, i think this one should be on here as well. Did this for a client a couple of years ago. I really like the Santa-character, not only when i draw it. His fleshy body, the cheerfull colors, the beard: it's the ideal playground for an illustrator.
The weird thing is: as an illustrator you always end up doing Christmas and Santa artwork in the middle of the summer, because that's when your clients start thinking of their xmas campaigns. It always struck me as a bit odd, doing snowy scenery illustrations in the middle of the summer.
