More often than not, our modern vision of Santa has him flying his sleigh over chimney-studded suburbs, laughing boisterously as he fulfills the dreams of children all over the world. Artist Scott Gustafson imagined that scene in his 2006 fine art edition "Up, Up and Away" (Sold Out at Publisher).

But we rarely remember that deep in the forest Santa’s arrival is equally anticipated. This "Woodland Santa" walks through the moonlit snow spreading treats and warming good cheer to all wildlife. Birds, rabbits and chipmunks surround him as the mischievous squirrel helps himself to a nut from Santa’s satchel. We can imagine from Santa’s face that this quiet stop gives him as much joy as filling each child’s stocking. Isn’t there a bird or wildlife enthusiast in your life who would cherish this holiday vision for years to come?


Scott Gustafson
Storytelling through pictures has always held a certain fascination for Scott Gustafson; be they the moving images in animated cartoons, or the epic illustrations of N. C. Wyeth. Upon entering the Chicago Academy of Fine Art, Scott was 99% sure that he wanted to become an animator, but it was that 1% that ultimately drew him more and more into the world of stretched canvas and oil paint. "As an animator, "Gustafson says, "your contribution to a given film is, by necessity, limited to whatever character you've been assigned. But as an illustrator, you're responsible for locations, sets, costumes, props, lighting and character designs, not to mention the overall mood and emotion of a given painting. It's about the best job there is." Over the nearly twenty-five years that span his career, he has had the opportunity to fulfill commissions for a number of varied clients and publishers such as Celestial Seasonings, Playboy magazine, Saturday Evening Post, The Bradford Exchange, DreamWorks and The Greenwich Workshop. His illustrated books include The Night Before Christmas, Peter Pan, Nutcracker, as well as two original titles, Animal Orchestra and Alphabet Soup. His newest release, Classic Fairy Tales, was recently awarded a Chesley award for best interior book illustrations from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists and is currently in its third printing.
