Happy Holidays!

This time of year always makes me want to do some santa pieces of some sort, so here are a couple I thought I'd post.

The first one started out as just a doodle and I ended up finishing it up. I couldn't decide whether to give him a red or a green bag, so I went with both. I thought it would be cool if it had sort of a "quilted" look, like maybe Mrs. Claus made it for him.

The second piece is based on a guy I saw on a bus in SF a few weekends ago (photo included). I don't know if he was a Mall Santa who just got off duty, or just a guy who recongnized his striking resemblance and just went for it, but I loved it either way.

Hope you guys enjoy.
Merry Christmas!

*I know that "N. Polk" is not actually a stop but my brother joked about him wanting to go to the "North Pole", not "North Polk" and I thought it was good, so I wanted to throw it in the painting.
