04. OH EXPLETIVE: 8-BIT ATTACK!
OH EXPLETIVE! is a series of illustrations about “ass kicking and mayhem” and “some of the most awesome things life has to offer.” What does that mean?! Well, in addition to the 8-bit mayhem you see above, artist Safwat Saleem creates illustrated chaos with unicorns, lions, zombies, knife fights, sharks, and grenade launchers.

The site serves as a resume and timeline of Santa’s life, and is actually quite humorous and brave at the same time. (via Gutsy Designer Launches Site as his Resume)
