Intergalactic Christmas Fear by Simanion Intergalactic Christmas Fear by Simanion
Medium: Watercolour with acrylic and ink
Size: A5

Getting into the spirit of things :lol:

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 :P 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 :heart: :santa: :star: :snowflake:
