While an illustration of Krampus may seem like a seasonal thing,
I think a picture of horrified children about to meet a sorry
fate at the hands of a mythological monster is fun year round.
Not long ago, the operators of Dutch Comic Con brought me out to
be a special guest at their show. To commemorate the event I put
out a very limited edition exclusive Arsenic Lullaby comic and
illustrated this for the cover. As is always sadly the case with
a cover, much of it has to get cropped off, or covered with
logos, bar codes and other necessary evils. It is here though as
an NFT un-cropped, unmarred, unblocked, in all of its childhood
trauma glory. Every wrinkle, slumped angle of posture, and baggy
eyed, shocked expression is here as it was meant to be viewed.
Illustrated via traditional means, all inking done with a brush,
then colored digitally.
Here's the rough draft...
and some finished inks...
the full piece will be at this
link....I think there will be 7 of these...or was it 10? I think
it was 7.
