Secret Santa is an annual art-trade, similar to a White Elephant gift exchange, where you sign-up in the forums and write a quick description of what you would like someone else to draw. The request can be as open-ended or as detailed and specific as you would like. Once all interested participants submit their intention to join in on the festivities, names go into a random name generator (or a top hat filled with names) in order to be selected at random.
Please keep in mind that there will only be a window of about two solid weeks after assignments are given, so keep requests semi-manageable.
There is a comfortable amount of participants who have already signed-up on the forums to participate in this year’s Secret Santa. Today is the very last day to join in on the fun festivities, so make haste and add your name to the participants list in order to guarantee yourself some much appreciated holiday cheer to top off 2020!
How Secret Santa works:
~Reply to this thread with your gift request before the end of sign-up deadline.
~When sign-ups close, everyone is assigned a secret random assignment via PQ.
~You will have until Christmas (at least a few weeks lead time) to complete your assigned gift and present it on a gift thread (to be posted later).
~Any gifts not completed by the deadline will be reassigned to a volunteer on the DWC (dead weight committee).
~If you need more time, you will need to contact the organizer (me, I guess) before the deadline or be labeled as “deadweight” and have your assignment reassigned. (Deadweight will not be permitted to participate next year.)
Sign-ups: Now to December 7th
Assignments: December 8th
Gift Deadline: December 25th
DWC Assigned: December 26th
DWC Deadline: January 1st
To participate, reply here with your request (can be as specific or vague as you want). If asking for art of a particular character, links to good reference art/pages are helpful.
Also please let me know if You are interested in being part of the DWC.
Hushicho’s Space Daddy Adventures is open for guest spots!
My comic Space Daddy Adventures (available here from the very start!) is returning this Friday to weekly posts again after a short break.
I'd really love to have some guest spots, and I love to do cross-promotion too! I made a section on my official site about guest spots and collaborations, so please do check it out.
I'd love any signal boosting that people can do. Thanks very much, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you so much for the boost on this announcement! And I'm very excited about participating in the Secret Santa. I've always loved the sentiment of a secret, festive exchange of art!
