Christmas/Kwahanisokalda Cards 2016

Merry Kwahanisokalda Cards 2016

2014-10-14-2080

If you haven’t noticed, my activity has dropped siginificantly this year thanks to various reasons. Mostly Overwatch and social upkeep. But Thanksgiving has passed (in Canada). So, it is with much apprehension that I announce the start of 2016’s Christmas card run.

The rules remain the same:

Shoot me an e-mail at christmas.panties[at]gmail.com with your name, address, and a sketch request. Title it something that won’t be eaten by the spam filters.

1. Name can be whatever you want, just be aware of possible confiscation by mail and/or parental authorities

2. Address must be a real address; there’s a little more magic when you get something tangible over snail mail. You can sit in teh drawthreads and wait patiently if all you want is something digital (I’m going to guess your success rate will be about the same). Please check the formating and make sure it shows up on google maps or some sort of address checker.

3. REQUESTS: I’ll (try to) draw anything that’ll fit on a 4″x5″ card with a pencil. Waifus, husbandos, pets, sonic personas, reptilian fantasies, whatever. I’ll even write you a little note on the back letting you know how fucking weird you are. Just promise me you are of legal age to view whatever it is I’m drawing. Or have your parents ask for you, it’ll give them something to think about. Send me some references if it’s not something I can easily google up.

After that, just wait and maybe I’ll pick yours. I followed a semi-random order in choosing cards the last few years, and I’ll probably do the same this year. Friends first, then randomly pick at everybody else based on how I feel at the moment. Sometimes completely random, sometimes because it sounds like a fun request, sometimes because it sounds like a dumb request, sometimes because it sounds like a dumb person, and sometimes using a random number generator. Submitting your request early will increase your odds by a little bit, but not much. Last year I recieved 120 requests and completed 65.

I’ll draw up until my Birthday and send them out on December 19th. Some people manage to recieve theirs before Christmas, some take months, others weren’t chosen and will have to apologize to their waifus. I post a collage of completed cards sometime in late January after I get news most that most of the cards have arrived, or are destined to be lost forever.

I was thinking about setting up a donation box to offset the cost of postage (it’s usually $100+) and supplies, but anons have historically been very cheap, and I’m more likely to spend that money on beer than stamps. You may buy me a beer should we ever meet in real life (or not. A good portion of you I don’t think I want to actaully meet.). The cards are free, trades not required (feel free to do so if you want).

Here’s last year’s collage:
(this year should be worse, due to my lack of practice)

  1. Fingers crossed as well =) Though I was so excited to send the e-mail, I forgot to add my attachment…so I sent a second e-mail…hope that doesn’t disqualify me =(

    Either way, thank you for another awesome year of Holiday joy!

  2. Not crossing any fingers because I’m not requesting, but want to say that you’re a nice person for doing this anyway. (For so many years, even.)

  3. Got mine who knows when (because I was out of town) but finally got to open it last night. Thanks for the Moetron!

    P.S. Your magical paper-folding-into-envelope technique gave me a good 30 mins of bewilderment and entertainment. Where did you pick this up from?
