Christmas Past – Part 1

Christmas Santa figurine designed by Frank Grau

This is from a line of thin Santa figurines I created. I also designed thin snowmen for this line.

My last post covered Disney’s Pooh & Friends products I designed for the giftware industry, many of them for Christmas. I did many Christmas designs for other giftware lines as well. Those designs covered many categories, including figurines, ornaments, musicals, water-balls, and other items.

Here are several designs I did for various lines. These illustrations were done for design purposes only and were not “finished” pieces of art meant for public consumption. As before, I’m simply offering a glimpse into the artwork used to manufacture giftware products. I’ll be posting more from these same lines in the days ahead.

Christmas Santa figurine designed by Frank Grau

This was a Santa-character line I created for Christmas. I had done two different color schemes for this line. Once I gave Cast Art in-studio product painter, Julio Flores, designs with color schemes, there was usually no reason to color additional designs unless the design was elaborate enough to warrant providing additional direction.

Slapstix clown Christmas ornament designed by Frank Grau

This is one of many ornaments I designed for the Slapstix clown line. Leo Romero, an in-house sculptor at Cast Art, did the final sculpt.

Christmas cherub figurine designed by Frank Grau

I already posted plenty of Dreamsicles cherub designs, however, since I did so many for Christmas, I may as well share a few.
