Old St. Nick

Another bamboo pen sketch in 20 minutes, this one of a slightly creepy porcelain St. Nick figurine I brought out with the Christmas decorating. Most renditions of Santa Claus/St. Nick are a little disturbing to me. Their mustaches are always covering their mouths, and this one has no feet. Definitely a weird aspect of the holiday message. But I like using this pen very much. Dip pen & watercolor ink, 4" x 7".
