White Cloud Worlds' Xmas Card

This year I finally had enough energy and time to get round to working up a Xmas card. I always loved Norman Rockwell's and Leyendecker's covers for the Christmas editions of the Saturday Evening Post and so decided to work that style with a more contemporary superhero santa.

Enjoy and a happy new year :)

Blooom Art Fair Cologne Germany

The same weekend that we were running our first booth at Armageddon Auckland, Paul trekked half way across the globe to run a White Clouds Booth at the prestigious Blooom Art Fair in Cologne. It was a huge event with some 35,000 visitors over 4 days. Highlight photos below :)
