Santa Claus is coming to town by Ivy Izzard

Santa Claus is coming to town by 

Santa’s recruiting


This piece was nominated by Ronnileigh to be showcased in Pay It Forward.

Ronnileigh said:
The first time I seen “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” I fell in love with it. I can feel the emotion of the children, it tugged at my heart. The terror and tears just melted my heart. It looked to me the baby had cried itself to sleep from exhaustion. Then you have Santa looking mean and about to find them. This piece is so life like.

Thank you so much, Ronnileigh, It’s a great honour to have my image chosen as your favourite work on RB.

    oh this is great… I was just thinking about this this afternoon Ivy…

    it intrigues me that if you just swap one letter in SANTA you get SATAN… It’s almost as if you have illustrated my thoughts perfectly…

    fantastic concept…

    Where do you get your models, Ivy? Do they live at the bottom of your garden?
