Update - He's been announced and is ready for ordering!
Every year one of the most anticipated releases we handle is the Annual Harmony Kingdom Santa! Artist Peter Calvesbert has had Santa on a motorcycle, stuck in a chimney, in a bathtub, on the toilet, gift wrapped, even in a hazmat suit for 2020! So as soon as we get to about July, I start getting calls and e-mails, "do you know anything about Santa yet?" And usually my response is, "I know he's coming! I'll let you know when I know more!" :D
So, here's what I know! Santa is coming soon. (We hope.) I'm hearing we should have him by the end of October or early November if all goes well. Wanna see a sneak peek?
This year Peter is reflecting the fact many things are becoming automated - even Santa has been partially replaced by a robot
