Santa Claus is one of the most iconic symbols of the Christmas spirit. Dads and grandpas even dress up like him to spread the holiday cheer to kids and families. So it’ll come as a (pleasant) surprise to see these rather unconventional depictions of Santa from various artists across the web. From ass-kicking Santa to sexy to rockstar, there’s one for every picture you may ever have in mind.
The first piece is from James Wolf Strehle, a truly gifted digital artist from the United States. He depicts Santa as an ogre-zombie hybrid slayer, for some reason. We love it! The second one is rather unfit to show to kids, as it may drastically change their views about the beloved Father Christmas. It is from Veli Nyström, an artist from Finland who is very good at digital drawings and illustration. Next, we have a rather steampunk-esque Santa, courtesy of Israel A. Carrion, a gifted artist from Spain.
We also see some crossovers – the first comes in the form of the new Star Wars cast (of course there’s a fan art for this). And finally, some Breaking Bad Santas (not too jolly, though!) from an entire “Heisenberg Chronicles” collection.
