Here's my christmascard for this year. For those of you who aren't Dutch: the victor is Sinterklaas, who is basically the same as Santa Clause who is based on him and was brought to the US by Dutch settlers and later on brutally violated by the Coca Cola company into the fat tub of lard we all love today. In the Netherlands (where I live) we celebrate Sinterklaas with gifts at the beginning of December and Christmas at the end (like all the other folks). Yes, we are a spoiled people in December.

Lineart for the characters was done by hand, scanned and than Illustrator live traced. All the rest was done directly in Illustrator CS5. Normally I work in Photoshop when it comes to color, but a friend/colleague gave me and some illustrators a show and tell on Illustrator and I have to say I am really starting to see the benefits over photoshop.
