No Trees in the South Pole

In popular Christmas lore, we always seem to mix penguins with Santa and the North Pole. Of course, there are no penguins in the Northern Hemisphere. They live within the Antarctic region. So, this poor guy went and got these presents, but doesn't have any tree to put them under!

This was a fun piece because I originally wanted to sketch over the line art, but I loved its looseness and was afraid I'd lose it. Instead, I just worked with color and didn't change the line work much at all. I'm really happy with how relaxed the whole thing turned out!
