Remember that guy with the Jerry Orbach tribute car
? Well, this is his 2017 holiday card design.
For the past few years, artist Brandon Bird has put sets of "T-mas" cards for sale in his online store. All the cards feature eighties icon Mr. T in a variety of holiday scenes. This year's card is called Precious Snowflake, as it imagines the gold-chained, mohawked A-Team star's as a paper snowflake design.
Bird shares the "T-mas" origin story:
The T-mas card tradition began with "Peace" in 2006 and "Believe" in 2008, and since 2011 I've tasked myself with creating a new design every year...
But the tradition of T-mas itself goes back further, to my sister, who decided we needed a holiday to celebrate America's only true folk hero. T-mas activities include the writing of Pity Lists, the construction of wooden "fools" from sticks which are tossed onto an open fire, and of course a hearty meal including lots of nutritious vegetables and milk. Though usually held in winter, T-mas can be celebrated any day. But remember, if you disrespect anyone's mother, T-mas is cancelled and you have to wait another year!
(I pity the fool who disrespects anyone's mother.)
Here's a look at some of his past year's T-mas card designs (most are still available for purchase):

Merry T-mas, y'all!

At Petapixel, Komarechka explains the surprising pop of color sometimes seen through the lens when he’s shooting a snowflake: As a snowflake grows it often creates […]
Ever since I read Laurie Penny’s scathing, insider account of Milo Yiannopoulos and his schtick, I knew that she had his number like no one else — and now that Yiannopoulos has been disbarred from his position as the useful idiot of the hard-right, I’ve been wondering what Penny made of the fall from grace.

He describes his hacked rig and technique here: “Snowflakes, night city and other things” More photos at Kljatov’s Flickr stream: ChaoticMind75 (Thanks, Bob Pescovitz!) Science of […]
