12 days of Christmas card

12 days of Christmas card

This year Ive decided to create some Christmas Cards, based on the song ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’, I wanted to incorporate all the characters from the song into one drawing, which ended up as a tree, I started at the bottom with the 12 Drummers Drumming.

For the lords a leaping section I put out a request for ideas on Facebook and had some excellent suggestions. The Lords ended up as, Lord Nelson, Lord Vader, A TimeLord, Lord of the Dance – Michael Flatley, Lord Jesus, Lord Lucan, Lord Voldemort, Lord Farquaad from Shrek, Lord Sugar and Screaming Lord Sutch.

in progress

I wanted to limit the amount of time spent on each drawing, so set a timer for 5 minutes each, which equated to 78 drawings x 5 =6.5 hours of solid drawing!

I  spent a little more time on Alan Partridge in a pear tree though, he was the last and the biggest one so I didn’t want to mess it up.

Anyway heres the finished product!
