Getting into the spirit of things
This actually started off (after a lot of incomprehensible mess) upside down, as a planet exploding. But then I decided the piece of paper was too small to depict such an event with due grandeur, and sat on it for a while.
Literally, I physically sat on it for weeks and weeks and connected with it in a very intimate way. Then one day on a train I stood up, peeled it off myself and turned it around to see that it was obviously an intergalactic snowmanifestation of Christmas Fear.
So I gave it some eyes, a carrot nose, sharp teeth and even sharper accessories. A mild homage to that Nightmare Before Christmas-era Tim Burton aesthetic, and just creepy Frost in general
Inspired by a hectic day of Xmas shopping, crowds, creepy Xmas statues/paraphernalia and house lights to rival Vegas.
Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone! Happy holidays, Festivus etc Follow me on Facebook for a more compelling and rich Simanion experience: www.facebook.com/simanion
