Reindeer Chaos

Medium: Pencil, Digital/Photoshop, Image Size: 7”h x 21″w, Note Card Image Size: 4”h x 11”w, 2018.

This artwork was created as my 2018 Christmas card. I modeled this in the style of my Funky Totems which is a colorful, graphic style with humorous characters. My Funky Totems are a modern-day twist on the ancient totems of indigenous peoples. Whereas our ancestors from long ago depicted the animals, plants, and spirit beings of their time, I have reinterpreted that simplistic style to show the many things that go on in our present-day culture. This totem depicts the chaos of playful reindeer who aren’t of much help to Santa.

Sketched in pencil, scanned into the computer, floated, painted in Photoshop, graphics, colors, effects, and text were done in Photoshop.
