A Merry Christmas to you! Here’s my design on the right; a collage using 19th Century drawings. It’s predominantly made up using the image on the left, Thomas Nast’s drawing for Harpers Weekly (1881?), which is one of the most historic images in terms of forging the modern idea of what Santa is ‘supposed’ to look like.

I took a few other drawings and assembled it by hand, alpha-ing it a little on the CPU, ending up with a Santa looking down a chimney, only for another to burst out, sending bricks flying everywhere. Good fun.
