Santa Clauses

Hey guys,

Earlier this year I was commissioned to draw the Icelandic santa clauses (or Yule Lads as they are sometimes known as) for the Dyslexic Association of Iceland. There are 13 santa clauses and each have their own name and personality so it was a fun project. Here are the final illustrations:
