That's really awesome. Do you mind if someone uses it as a forum avatar (non-commercially, of course).

Also, what program did you use to do this?

Take one squid. Ram a stick up his ...er, beak. Decorate with stars. Spin around on the "tilt-o-whirl". Coat liberally with shallac. Add lights. Surprise all your neighbors with your new original Christmas tree. When they say "how... interesting" tell them "Sinyx did it first." Try not to be disappointed when they say "who is Sinyx?" (I tell people "I know someone who drew some stuff for KND. They say "cool" and I say "You have NO idea.")

PETA's gonna be so on your ass.

When I sent these out I was actually worried that the design was too Christmasy for my Jewish friends to enjoy. I was surprised when the first thing I heard was how Mr. Squid looked exactly like a 9 branched Hanukkah menorah.

Cephalopods do indeed rule. The fact that it's green, somewhat dark, and has glowing eyes gives me Cthulhu vibes, though. Cthulhu wishes you happy holidays while you can still enjoy them, puny mortal! X)

Nothing makes Christmas better than pure unadulturated evil.

He somehow seems less "festive" than "evil overlord" to me, maybe it's the minimalism combined with the yellow eyes and the stars (commie squid?). Well, don't let me rain on your parade, Merry Squidmas.

I don't mind the Evil Overlord vibe. I like adding a bit of the non traditional to my card every year.
