Twelve Days of Christmas Art From Sketchy Miami
Rock on, Santa man.
Traditional Christmas parties are such a drag, usually resulting in awkward conversations with coworkers you never wanted to see outside of the office or the regrettable, booze-fueled antics of formerly estranged family members. So thank the sweet baby Jesus for Sketchy Miami. Its talented artists are channeling their holiday cheer into far more noble pursuits like the upcoming Sketchy Holiday Party at Lester's this Thursday, at which creative types will be drawing away while the rest of us take advantage of drink specials, compete for the title of Best Holiday Sweater, and enjoy the company of people we actually like.
But for you, dear reader, Christmas really has come early. The Sketchy artists put together a collection of holiday-themed sketches just for us at Cultist. And because 'tis better to give than to receive, we're passing them on to you.

After all, isn't this what Christmas is really all about?
