Bad Elf

For the few remaining days leading up to Christmas I've decided to do a series of Bad Elf drawings. Why Bad Elf? Well, I think the idea started with an illustration of an elf found in an 1870's German-English picture dictionary that I picked up several years ago in Pennsylvania - I've always thought that this picture was a bit creepy:

Also, it's the holiday season and nothing says happy holidays like those two contemporary film classics, Elf and Bad Santa.

Bad Elf 1. 2009. crayon and shellac on vellum. 9-1/2 x 5 in.
