Illustration Friday - "Visitors"


A bit stretched, so I haven't had time this week to create a brand spanking new bespoke image.

This is a job I did for the Guardian newspaper a few years back - a shamelessly cynical take on Clement Clarke Moore's 1822 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas".

It's quite different to the way I work now ( I was a 'vector' man in those days) - it might be quite nice to re-do or tart up this image ( I still like the idea), add some more mood and shadow.

Oh excellent. Love the stakness of the black and orange. And then to raise the guy's hope just to crush it...great job, great humor!
