Last year, I started drawing Mavis from Hotel Transylvania in a holiday sweater from the day after American Thanksgiving to January 2nd.
This year, I decided to turn it into a tradition and do it every year. So, welcome to the second year of Holiday Mavis!
Obsession turn to Tradition
Last year Hotel Transylvania The Series came out, and when I decided to give it a try, I realized how much I related to Mavis. I’m anything but average, I’m clumsy with everything I do.
I looked at her thought to myself that it felt great to have a character to relate to and not feel alone. It’s hard when you’re different, a little gothic, into monsters and things people judge you for liking. Then she came along, and I didn’t feel alone.
I started drawing her with this holiday sweater, drew her uncle Frankenstein with a Christmas hat, and that was it. I couldn’t stop drawing her! On DeviantArt, she became quite popular, and people seemed to be interested in it.
Monsters Likes Christmas
By bringing Hotel Transylvania The Series, it gives a new look on the holidays. However, not big enough yet, I decided to make it last a little longer and provide a variety.
Drawing Mavis with that holiday sweater was fun and entertaining and had me smile when people were thanking me for drawing her as such!
The Messy Hair
You’ll notice that I always draw Mavis with messy hair. That is my twist to the character. Like I’ve said before, I relate quite strongly to Mavis, and so, I decided to merge myself with her.
I do have black hair, short and a little stressed and clumsy and just like in the cartoon series, I have exaggerated expressions. It just made sense to me. So, I draw Mavis with messy waking up hair! Haha!
So, expect to see many 2018 Holiday Mavis!
