Afro Supa® Santa

I love Christmas and I love counting down the days in December on our online advent calendar. However, as I tick off the days to Christmas, no matter how organised I’ve been and no matter how early I start my pressie shopping and card writing, I can never shake off that feeling at the back of my mind that I might have forgotten something or someone… There are just never enough hours in the day once you’ve opened that first box of mince pies and surrendered to the festive season.

Yesterday was the last posting date for sending Christmas cards first class in the UK post. But don’t worry if you haven’t written all your cards yet, for help is here – Afro Supa® Santa could save the day!

This very festive super hero is a special addition to our range of free Christmas e-cards for 2015. Not only does he bring Christmas cheer but also news of a fantastic exhibition for the New Year.

Afro Supa® Santa is a character by Jon Daniel. Jon was born in London and found his positive Black role models in the West Indian culture of his family and the African American culture of the US during his childhood.

In 2016 the exhibition Afro Supa Hero at the International Slavery Museum will feature highlights from Jon’s personal collection of pop cultural heroes and heroines of the African diaspora.

This fab new card joins our range of free Christmas e-cards, which includes some wonderful vintage designs from the decorative art collection at the Walker Art Gallery and the social and community history collection at the Museum of Liverpool. There are also some beautiful paintings and sculpture from the Lady Lever Art Gallery and Sudley House, as well as paintings from recent John Moores Painting Prize exhibitions.

Our e-cards are free to send and delivered faster than even Father Christmas’s sleigh could travel. So what are you waiting for? Send a supa Christmas message today!
