Krampus model

My mother-in-law is an ex-art teacher with a crafty edge. 2 years ago, after she learned of my fascination with all things Krampus, she crafted me a 16-18" resin-type stuff around an old doll skeleton and other artifacts to bring that genuine devilish persona to life. Needless to say, I was thoroughly impressed. We do our best to showcase this sonofabitch along with a proportionately sized St. Niklaus. I may take another photo of him in his current home atop the mantle in the living room. This photo was taken back when I first received the bugger.

KrampusKard '08 -scan

This is the pre-colored sneak-peak of the 2008 Krampus Kard. It is currently awaiting shipment to my P.O. Box. In all its evil glory. It's the same horizontal format of the last one but with more narrative. I wanted to incorporate children in this one since most of the depictions of krampus postcards show him accompanied by them.
This scan just shows the elements that I have used, but in no way exposes the impact of what will be coming down the chimney this season.
