When two of my friends (a.k.a. the people behind the band/YouTube channel Salt and Butter) asked me if I would draw the cover for their Christmas album, I was more than happy to do it. They gave me a basic sketch of what they wanted–a tree in the middle, with a salt shaker and a stick of butter upside-down in the top corners–but aside from that, the rest could pretty much be whatever I wanted. I figured a jumble of characters and song references would look neat, so I made sure to include jokes from all of their new songs. If you’re interested in seeing my drawing process for this piece, be sure to check out my speedpaint on YouTube. And don’t forget to listen to “A Very Salty Christmas”!
