Official PaperDemon Secret Santa Art trade

'Tis the season of giving. What better way for us to give than giving the gift of our own personal creations. This is a wonderful opportunity us to get to know one another and our original or favorite characters as well as challenge ourselves by creating something new.

What is it?

When you sign up, you put in a request of what you would like for your art. Then you, along with everyone else participating, will draw the request for the person their assigned. Between Christmas eve and New Year's, we each post our gifts 🎁 on PaperDemon!

Participation requirements

  • Please only sign up if you have the time to create a work of art for someone else.

  • Keep your request simple. Try to stick to one character, maybe two characters max.

How to participate

  1. Fill out the registration form by December 1st midnight PST and describe your art request.

    • Describe what character/thing you want drawn

    • Include links to reference images

  2. On December 2nd, I'll scramble the names and randomly chose someone on the list to draw your request and I'll send you a message letting you know who you've been assigned. Please don't tell who you are Secret Santa for. That would ruin the surprise!

  3. Create a work of art of what the other person requested

    • It's a huge bummer for the person on the receiving end to not get their gift so please don't bail. It doesn't have to be perfect or complex either. Do something realistic with the time you have.

    • If you think you might be late, please email me ( ) so I can let the person know.

  4. Post the art on PaperDemon between Dec 24th and January 1st with the tag secretsanta2018. Send a message to the person the gift is for with a link to their gift!

It's been more than 10 years since we've done this but I plan for this to be a recurring yearly thing. I look forward to seeing the lovely creations you all make!
