DISCLAIMER: i am not a nazi. i am not a nazi sympathizer. i do not deny that the holocaust happened. i do not admire adolf hitler in an way, shape or form. in fact, i agree with 99.999% of the population that hitler was a massive, colossal, galactus-sized gigantic a-hole-jerk.

ahem. now, with that out of the way...

this piece is was an assignment from the fine folks at gallery 1988 for their upcoming "SMart: a smodcast art show" based on scenes from kevin smith and scott mosier's uber-popular SModcast podcast. kevin will be pimping his new book of transcripts from the show, "shootin' the sh*t with kevin smith" at the gallery while artist renditions of ridiculous scenes from said tome adorn the walls.

my assignment: to illustrate a conversation between kevin and scott where they riff on the many convoluted origins of santa claus. the conversation eventually takes a bizarre turn, steering them toward creating a new television channel that blurs the line between fact and fiction. one of the fictitious stories on said station? "the lost legend of hitler claus." and what better way for me to illustrate such a prickly topic than in that old rankin/bass-heartwarming-holiday-special style.

at any rate, if you're in the 'hood, stop by the gallery, say hello to kevin and check out some truly weird ass concept art.

location:

Awesome, i like your art and style! :+fav:

and if i were you i would not write the "DISCLAIMER" because everything we see on tv/movie/books about Hitler and others are 80% made up.

Makes me think about Bill Plympton's last short, "Santa, The Fascist Years".

no problem ;)
many people from the United States think his name was adolph :D
because thats the american version of this name ;)
but in Germany and Austria ( both speak german ) his name is adolf ;) and adolf comes from Austria so his name i s Adolf not Adolph ;)
example :
Eddy Murphy ( right ? think thats his name ! )
eddy .... theres no name in German like that !
the nearest name is Eduart or Eduard ( 2 Spellings in german xD )
and you can say Eduard/t Murphy to him :D
If he would hear that he will punch you xD

so thats a friendly lead ;)


see you.

that's a really cute style you're using =D... even with him as character..
I'm just wondering..is it the hitler salute he's doing? because I thought it was supposed to be done with the right hand..xD
anyway, I love the dachshund/reindeer cross-over xD..great job:thumbsup:

and just so I don't leave the wrong impression here:
I think he was a monster..but this is lovely x)

You know, starting the Holocaust and WW2 did make Hitler a bastard, but he did set into motion some good things as well. I always hate it when people just see bad as bad and that's it.

Awesome! Fellow Smod artist (I did "The President Meets Helen Keller," though it won't be @ the show).

I'm so f'ing jealous how well you did this, especially in keeping with the Rankin Bass style (which I tried to do for "the Deadly Gnomes" but it came out lousy), and I LOVE the Smodcast logo design. Perfect.

Love the Kevin snowman as well. Is that Mosier as the elf and Sheckie as Rudolph?

Whenever I have to drive ANY distance, I have Smodcast playing in my car. Eight-legged Sliepner is absurdly tough to draw, but I feel I should do something with him and Odin One-Eye for Christmas this year (that whole ep is ripe for drawings, who doesn't want to see Santa as a drunk dutch sailor?)

But hahahaha, it's funny how every piece of art that's related to Hitler in any way needs a massive disclaimer so people won't throw rocks at you and accuse you of being a NeoNazi. Wonder when the world will get over it.

yeah well hitler is a symbol of racism, that's probably the reason. it's like putting an inverted crucifix in a piece - me, i wouldn't give a shit, but a christian would throw a fit.

:icondc-tiki:
DC-Tiki Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I understand where you're coming from with the generalisation but Kevin Smith is a christian and the whole illustration is based on one of his riffs so ya know, never can tell, eh?

:iconmadmadman01:
madmadman01 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2009   General Artist
well, his religion doesn't matter at all, my analogy with the inverted crucifix was a reply to those ppl in the thread making statements like "oh why is everybody so uptight about hitler and swastikas??" And the point was, c'mon, everybody knows why.

yeah, i had some concerns about even posting it, but i was pretty proud of how the actual art turned out. i figured if i put the disclaimer up and distanced myself from the subject matter, people would figure it out.

I think it's worse because your rendering is so cute, but they haven't heard that character speak (that brilliant working-class British voice is killer)
