Krismas sketch

A quick Krismas sketch. 


Click to enlarge. Maybe I'll need to do a Candy Cane Crinoid Forest. Hm.





I love this post by Dale McGowan about "Krismas" as an explanation for how many celebrate the solstice season.  

Some other fun holiday artwork can be found at Rouble Rust, Clever Girl and Eric Orchard

What a fitting representation of a 'flying trilobite' Christmas.

Love the quirky posture of the tree.

Marco.

Thanks Marco!

I'm happier with the tree than the ornaments. If I have the time later I may erase those layers and re-do the ornaments in a more cel-shaded style to make them pop.

Love this tree, and I think a candy cane crinoid forest would be AMAZING.

Such a sweet piece of art! I love my eclectic collection of ornaments, but I've always thought it'd be really cool to do an undersea creature theme tree. If I do, I promise to put a Trilobite at the top.

Thanks David! I'll see if I can squeeze a canday cane crinoid scene in before the baby arrives. :-)

Thanks so much Trish! And you will post many pictures, yeah? We have a mermaid with a candy cane ornament. I have no idea where we got it.

And have you seen this e-card?

Nice! The sway of the tree sets off the image !

Thanks Katie! It's listening to Bing Crosby.
