Zombie Santa and Skeleton Rudolph
That's a red flashlight in the reindeer skull's nasal cavity, if that needs to be said.
It's all just holiday build-up from here on out. We are not especially observant of any particular tradition beyond the giving of presents to our children. I've done a lot of asking...like, "So what are YOU planning to GIVE to your grandma?...or aunt?...or father?" Because, of course, it is better to give than to receive. Or at least it is best to not annoy the adults around you with your greedy requests to the point where they decide to give you nothing.
While it is true that I could use some brains for the holidays...despite my somewhat jaundiced parental perspective on the holidays, the drawing of Undead Santa and Very Dead Rudolph is not for my kids. It is for for "Deck the Halls," a holiday auction to benefit The New York Academy of Art, where I teach occasionally...
I teach sculpture at the NYAA, and most definitely not the drawing of zombies on napkins, just to be clear.
