‘Tis the season for Cartoon Santa Claus. The lights are up, decorating has begun, and with that, there’s a need for Santa Claus cartoons. I haven’t drawn many people characters for sale as microstock but Santa Claus seemed like a must do for the holiday season. Recreating a character that is already so well known presents unique challenges. On the one hand, Santa Claus is a guaranteed sale at least once a year. On the other hand, everyone knows that so the market is already saturated with high-quality Santa Claus microstock. The challenge is to create a Santa that hasn’t been seen before. It can be something simple that sets him apart. This Santa Claus is sporting suspenders, not a typical look for Santa but one that I think suits him well.
