Shock - Santa

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I’ve been spending most of my time finding out what does, and doesn’t mix well with egg nog. For those keeping track, coconut rum = good, soy sauce = bad, turkey gravy = AMAZING!

Shock – The ice caps aren’t melting fast enough.

It’s that time of year again, time to prepare yourself for a home invasion from a deranged holiday sociopath. Naughty or nice are relative terms, Die Sinterklaas will find you, and few children pass his harsh judgement. A religious zealot who stalks children, threatening to give the naughty to the demonic Krampus to eat. A legion of enslaved elves are kept working day and nigh at an arctic compound. They dream of the day they overthrow their tyrannical overlord. This week we follow Santa Claus, and the day he finally snaps.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: The night Santa went crazy.

When I say, one crappy drawing a week,  I really mean crappy. Lest those don’t think they have time, or don’t want to submit something unless it is really something spectacular. Sometimes a quick doodle is  the best you can do, and could do.

This week we get a little dual usage with our theme, as the Christmas Season closing in, and we have another Elven heavy Tolkien film hitting theaters. Elves make toys at the North pole, cookies in hollow trees, Shoes when the cobblers are sleeping, and are wicked deadly with a long bow. There are so many versions of elves in folklore, popular culture and fantasy; any one of them, from Keebler to Drow, is fair game.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Elves.

All art work is due on Thursday, 12.19.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday, 12.20.13

No theme for the week for Christmas, but we will be back the following week with, Year of the Horse.

And incase you didn’t realize, that’s Ralphie from A Christmas Story in red next to Will Ferrell.
