Rejected: My Christmas card sketch

Now Santa was supposed to look - annoyed... tired..... bored.... longing to be elsewhere.....


However- perception was "creepy" "unappealing"

Little girl was supposed to look angry- nasty - in a foul mood - "Naughty"

Perception- "cold" "afraid Santa is going to do something inappropriate to her"

So-  hmmmmmm. Scrap that. Back to the drawing board!


I love his feet tho.

maybe a spin on it could be shocked Santa, or overwhelmed Santa. Baby with dirty diaper on one knee, screaming child on the other, bratty boy yanking at his beard... I dont know.. but I like the idea of depicting something other than Jolly Ole Saint Nick!

Funny drawing, nonetheless!

Yeah, he's got kind of a Billy Bob Thornton-"Bad Santa"-thing going on. Still awesome, though!

I like drawing real expressions on characters that are not so perfect looking. It's what's real and what makes being a cartoonist fun.
