I wanted to keep it simple with this design, so I created a card featuring one of the most iconic holiday faces. Pop Art is known for using famous consumerist images as a focal point – I wanted to take the famous face of Christmas but abstract it to illegibility. The result is somewhere between Andy Warhol’s aesthetic and Bridget Riley’s Op Art of the 60s.
