About this cartoon...
This piece is another Christmas card commission from the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club for the back page of their Christmas edition of Tansha magazine.
I was given no brief as such but it just had to be fun and include at least one motorcycle somewhere, and seeing as we’ve not yet seen what ‘Mrs Santa’ looks like, I envisioned she should be some kind of rufty-tufty biker type, who’d be giving out Christmas kisses to all the ‘good’ elves.
Created firstly as a series of smaller pencil sketches that were then scanned in and digitised, before being put into a fun composition.
I especially like Santa’s expression in this piece, absolutely doing his nut watching the elves playing up, rather than what they should be doing – no cake for them!
