Leonardo DaVinci as Santa Claus. Most people don't know that Leonardo made extra cash by dressing as Santa for Kids' Christmas parties. Oh---and he invented the sleigh too. Santa Source Member reactions:
This is a great piece of art.. Love the style, and the Leonardo designed sled is the perfect touch.
Very creative work. Should have scored higher
Have to agree with Newsmaster. I thought Somewhere in the top 5 for sure. Super Work, LunaC.
Well, unemployment numbers may be down some, but there are still many areas of the workforce where the pain and difficulties of being out of work still linger, including those formerly employed at The North Pole. Although past popularity and success followed the holly jolly one wherever he went, the man formerly in the red flannel suit is struggling to keep his reindeer in food.

Santa Claus never refused to endorse any product. Why? Because he's technically not a trademarked character - this fat old jolly fellow is in the public domain - which means every company who wants to use Santa to promote their products are free to do so. And who, if not Santa, could help boost your sales before Christmas? Some companies practically abused Santa image using him for products he hardly fits with. Here's a nice gallery of vintage ads with Santa.
Add Santa Claus image to labels,
brands, and products normally not appropriate for Santa image. Please keep your entries Safe For Work.
[ The state of Maine has banned a beer because its label depicts Santa
Claus enjoying a pint of brew. The state said that the label for
"Santa's Butt Winter Porter" is "undignified and improper" and may
attract children. ]
I understand Maine is concerned about morality and "wrong appeal" to
children, but banning a beer for using the image of Santa is like
banning Playboy magazine for using the image of bunny. Children love
bunnies more than they love beer.
So Maine is barking up the wrong tree here. If you want to clean you
state morals, start with ho, ho, hos on your streets, not on beer
In this contest you are asked to add Santa Claus image to labels,
brands, and products which would be considered inappropriate use of
Santa image. E.g. Santa Claus on alcohol products, condoms, guns,
