Talented artist Jamie Browne's line of Christmas cards dubbed Monster Children creatively merge surfing and skate culture with the iconic winter holiday. The cards feature a sombre and minimal aesthetic that offers a black humor approach to getting into the holiday spirit.

Often times Christmas cards embody the joyous elements of the occasion, but the Monster Children set opts for a divergent and rebellious attitude by drawing inspiration from surf and skate culture. The cover art features black and white ink illustrations of sunny beaches with a rotting skeletal santa, defiant personified waves and skateboards with a pine tree running through it. The well-wishes are also play on words keeping in theme with sayings such as "warm wishes" and "good tide-ings." Stats for Rebellious Holiday Cards Trending: This Quarter & Average
