About this cartoon...
Santa lost in the snow 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 by the client (which is always fun, as you can get really creative) only that they liked the idea of a cartoon scene, depicting a lost Santa delivering motorcycle parts in the snow.
Another perfect opportunity for a bunch of mischievous elves to be playing up while Santa is attempting to save the day.
Creating this crazy Santa cartoon scene
Created as a single pencil sketch and then scanned in, before adding the outlines and colours digitally. This also gave me plenty of opportunity to hone the composition and character placement.
Personally I think it’s only the two reindeer that have any sense!
