thanks guys* glad i can confuse every so often. the idea for this came from a painting that's in the movie 'auntie mame' for 2seconds.
tech: i did a pencil ruff of santa and then slapped that on the light table. then, using charcoal, filled in the seperate colors...seperately (blue, black then white). then scaned it in, converted it to vector, then rebuilt the pieces in illustrator. (drawing the un-scrojo way)
