I grew up surrounded by images of "traditional Santa", not the guy in the red suit.  The traditional Santa always looked like a wizard to me with his long fur-trimmed robes and gnarled staff.  I still prefer traditional Santa and wanted to draw something Christmas-y for once, although he really doesn't look all that Christmas-y.

How interesting. Without reading your commentary I thought that this guy could be Santa and that is what you intended after all. I like the concept.

By "traditional Santa" - presume you mean the images of Father Christmas found in many nations. I used to collrct FC figurines and far prefer them to jolly old St. Nick. Yours is a wonderful Christmas Wizard. Siseline - Always wondered why Hogwarts celebrated Christmas since they weren’t "Muggle Christian" as such - and if they did why no Father Christmas? Dumbledore would have made a good one.
