Xmas Magazine 09 by PatrickBrown Xmas Magazine 09 by PatrickBrown
This is actually something I did at work for once haha!
I work at newspaper company as a graphic designer, my editor and crew wanted me to design this years Christmas Magazine Cover.. I really enjoyed doing this one!

You're probably wondering why Santa is at the beach, well here in Aussie we have a Summer Christmas ;) Haha I was really tempted to add some prison tatts on his beefcake arms and a beer instead of a milkshake haha! Somehow I don't think it would get approved for print though ;)

Anyways enjoy!
-Pat

PS In the final version Santa actually has a big beard, but I rather this shorter one for DA, just trying to give Santa a different look to the usual ;)

Hey, It looks good. After a whole night of delivering gifts. it would make sense to head down to a nice hot beach for some R&R.

This pic aside, I could use a trip there myself. :) It can get quite cold here.

very cool ... but one question ... how does santa keep all those poisonous and/or dangerous aussie animals away from him ?

( i really, REALLY had to try hard to keep myself from just writing ' how does santa keep the dingos away from his baby ' ... or something about kangaroos and fosters and shrimp on the barby ... i'm so sorry XD )

Seems like we were both saddled with the same job, lol!

I was always curious about Christmases in the southern hemisphere. Such as , are you guys saturated with images of a white Christmas as we are up here (even those of us who don't get snow), or are images like this one here more common. And if not, does it get on your nerves on how snowy Christmases are so praised. I know it gets on mine.

Sorry about starting a socio-economical question but this is a really good piece as always. :dance:
