St. Nick

A Christmas-themed sketch inspired by a facebook post from my onetime Marvel boss, Marcus McLaurin. He had some thoughts on the description of St. Nick in "The Night Before Christmas". Specifically, that the description in the poem doesn't remotely resemble the way that they always draw Santa Claus and in fact describes, in Marcus' words, "a dirty tiny elf". I thought that was brilliant.

Tres creepy. Awesomely done. Those eyes, man!
I see a Chuck Jones-y style to that smile, as well. Hope you haven't shown this to the girls.
Happy Holidays, Kevin.
