What I love about the Celtic style is that it conveys a sense of mystery. Like the artwork depicts something ancient and lost to time and history. That's why I think the Krampus is a perfect character to be portrayed in a Celtic style. The history of Krampus, as with most folklore, is shrouded in a past that isn't totally clear, and yet, it's presence continues to be known into contemporary times. This version, to me, looks kind of like a Tarot card. It's more simplistic and two-dimensional, but it's meaning implies centuries of history and hidden meaning.

Have you been a good kid? Or a good adult, for that matter? Germanic spirits of punishment may not be that discerning when they make their rounds opposite old Saint Nick. But if you adorn yourself with their likeness… maybe, just maybe… you’re still screwed.
