'Twas the Day After Christmas
Oh, I know it's not after Christmas, but I couldn't wait that long to post this.
Drew this for Tom at LAIKA. He makes a Christmas mix CD each year and asked me to illustrate it for this year. It took me a while to get the concept down, just the way I like it. It's still far from what I originally envisioned, but I like the end result anyway. Plus, I'm happy with the type at the top there. That was a load of fun. Maybe I'll post some of the sketches. There was a lot of trial and error.
I was a little worried about the ultra-pink/purple happening here, but I think it's okay. Not as harsh as I think. Or is it? Are my burned retinas affecting my creative decision making here? Are the violent violets melting my gray matter? The world will never know....
Check him out: Santa just sittin' back, relaxin', listening to some tunes while Rudolf curls up by the fire, the day after the Big Day. Santa likes midcentury modern. He's a modern kinda guy.
