Sienkiewicz' Santa

Comic book artist Bill Sienkiewicz is renowned for his groundbreaking graphic work on edgy titles such as Stray Toasters, Elektra Assassin and Voodoo Child. Even the man who brought us these dark visions is not immune to the festive season however, as evidenced by his work on the storybook Santa: My Life & Times from 1998.

Below are just a few of the illustrations featured in the book. He's obviously reigned in his style to some degree to suit the audience but his mixed media approach still provides us with some luminous, at time almost vision-like work.

The book seems to be out of print but it's still possible to pick up a good second hand copy from the usual online suspects or a second-hand book store.

Happy Christmas!
