A Little Late... 2017 Holiday Card - Bes

Somehow I forgot to post the art that I did for our 2017 holiday card. Usually I post it in mid to late December after the cards have all gone out and hopefully received. This year it seems to have slipped though the cracks. Which is funny, since I got the art done ahead of schedule and I even think the cards were in the mail early too.

For 2017 I decided to depict an Egyptian God that I had never known about. While in Paris this past year I saw many depictions of Bes at the Louvre. Not sure how I had never come across Bes before, but I hadn't... until now. I was instantly enamored with Bes and knew I HAD to do a drawing related to him. The holiday card seemed like a good fit. This past year we hoped that everyone's holiday season was the Bes!
