I hang around the Absolute Write forums on occasion, and there have been odd little Christmas themed graphics going by in one of the ad spaces. Today it was this one, which I loved dearly. I haven’t been able to find an artist, or turn it up in another search–looks vintagey, although the border is obviously modern.
Nevertheless, I wanted to share it with you guys, because it’s AWESOME.
It’s not the Krampus design itself—my buddy Miss Monster’s are way better. (And often plagiarized, more’s the pity.)
No, it’s the kids…
BOY #1: Dude! Hell! Not cool!
GIRL #1: I have something in my eye. Now I’m sad.
KRAMPUS: Gene Simmons got nuthin’ on me!
GIRL #2: Ho hum, dragged to hell again. Hell is so boring this time of year.
BOY #2: HI, MOM! GUESS WHERE I AM!?
Reminds me of those old style saint cards that Catholics give out at random events. (Sort of like the wackier Protestants give out Chick Tracts, I guess, if you want to support bad painters and feel too guilty to actually lecture anyone about anything. There’s a whole subset just for funerals, with the deceased’s stats on the back like a very odd sort of baseball card.)
