I really love this illustration because it really re-enforces just how special Santa Claus is…! The rest of us up in that sleigh would be freezing, with snow blowing in our faces at incredible speed. But for this untraditional Santa (don’t drive your sleigh while on your phone, kids) it’s just a super-chill situation, and beautiful to boot! Also, there’s a ton of detail and great perspective-work on display here as well… this artist is enormously talented!
In fact, PIXIV Almanac is full of great, talented artists, and I’m thrilled we’re getting more opportunity to spotlight them here.
