The theme selected for week forty five of Operation Graphite will be: Krampus.


While the Dutch have their Zwarte Piet, the Germans also have their own Christmas character, and it is uniquely… German. Meet Krampus, what he lacks in racist stereotypes, he more than makes up for by being absolutely fucking terrifying. A demonic monster who either will beat you bloody with sticks, or simply kidnap and eat you if St. Nicholas deems you naughty. Ah, the Germans, the people who gave children Struwwelpeter, and the years of nightmares that followed.

This is the last Grey Op for the year. There will be a week of R&R for Christmas. Try not to get eaten by Krampus.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, of Krampus

All art work is due on Thursday 12.20.12. Submissions will be published the following Friday 12.21.12
