I’m sure many of you have participated or heard of a game called Secret Santa!

Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group are randomly assigned other members to whom they anonymously give a gift. Often practised in workplaces, or amongst large families, participation in it is usually voluntary.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_Santa

My proposal here is similar, the only difference is that it does not need to be anonymous. Each author chooses another author, and the gift is simple: it’s art! Any kind of art is valid, just choose an author, do an art piece and post it here. Create anything you want! Just don’t forget to include some visual element relevant to the author’s name or visual identity.

Here are some examples of quick and fun homages I’ve done in the past for different occasions, for EAMejia, Raincutter, and NechitaPaulFlavius.

I really hope to see some great pieces here, let’s get creative! By the way, if you want, feel free to choose any of the authors above again. I will participate and create a new one as well.

There are no limits to the number of times the same author can be chosen. So for example, if 4 people choose Raincutter, that’s fine! It’s up to you to decide. Let’s try not to leave anyone behind, so submit as many as you like.

Go GraphicRiver!

That’s clever work, Thomas, but is that really a kind-hearted gift from a Secret Santa? :) I think the idea of a Secret Santa is to share the spirit of the season, so please lets not let this thread turn mean spirited, guys.
