Scratch to reveal nude art in this new advent calendar

Some people start to get that festive feeling the second that the shops clear the Halloween decorations from their shelves, while others wait for the launch of heart-warming Christmas ad campaigns or a good old-fashioned advent calendar to start the Christmas countdown.

You'll usually find chocolate in advent calendars, but artist and king of the creative side project Mr Bingo has decided to shake things up with his 2017 Advent Calendar. Instead of a tasty treat hidden behind an infuriatingly difficult to open door, the Hate Mail illustrator has decided to draw 25 naked people and cover them in his own personalised rub-removable opaque gold ink that users scrape off throughout the month like a sexy scratch card.
