Art For Art’s Sake – The Christmas Card edition

Published On December 21, 2012 | By Richard Bruton | Animation, Art For Art's Sake, Comics

Every year we see more and more interesting Christmas cards coming out from comikers all over the world. Here are a few of our faves…

We’ll start with this from Paul Rainey… and yes, like Marc Laming said on Twitter – ‘this years Christmas card by @pbrainey wins the internet – it’s complete genius‘.

The front…

…. and inside…

Blank Slate Christmas card this year by the hugely talented Joe Decie….

Sarah McIntyre – lino cut print takes the place of a christmas card this year, but hey…. sea monkeys!

What have sea monkeys got to do with Christmas? Well, the sea monkeys won’t officially come out in a book until next autumn. (Have a look at past artwork updates for Oliver and the Seawigs.) But the little blighters keep popping up EVERYWHERE. Worse than jumper-eating moths. They’ve already knocked over our Christmas tree and set it alight.
