Watchman's Note

This is a journey to the best designs in the world of Handpicked and presented (along with my own artwork) by yours truly, the driving force behind Surreality designs. We'll discover great artists and special products -mostly with a taste for the eccentric. But let us not confine ourselves in specific genres: the possibilities are endless and so is the great art one can find at Zazzle.


Santa goes to war

Extreme times give birth to extreme measures -and weird propaganda. This poster's Santa wears a helmet and an army outfit and carries a rifle. His gift in War World I times was weaponry for the soldiers fighting the most devastating war the world had known.
This vintage print (picturing one of the strangest "Ho, ho, ho" situations I've seen) is found at BurbanKPilot,  the store of photographer Ron Irwin. It's a great illustration that captures the spirit of wartime holidays.
