New On-Demand: Kawaii Gingerbread House

My cute cookies are following the rules and staying home for Christmas too, in their new gingerbread house! This illustration is now available at Society6, Redbubble, TeePublic & Zazzle + there’s some big discounts today.

I came up with this idea when brainstorming for my personal Christmas cards and had to draw it straight away. I think living in a kawaii gingerbread house would make up for the disappointment or not seeing friends and family this year. My own cards will be a bit different though so no spoilers here.
