Original Christmas Card #14: And Heav’n and Nature Sing… a Horrible, Horrible Song.

Like the “Rudolph the Middle-Aged Reindeer” drawing from Monday, this doodle was drawn by Mr. Mark Montgomery of Springfield, MO. I sent him the idea, simply saying “I want a cartoon where Heaven and nature sing – like in ‘Joy to the World’ – but they’re singing the worst song of all time: Smash Mouth’s...

Original Christmas Card #13: Chainsaw Santa Claus

When I created this card in 2008, it officially became my most talked-about holiday visual.  The most common comment was, “What does ‘FRAKKA!’ mean?” I’m pretty sure “FRAKKA!” is simply the sound of the chainsaw cutting through Santa’s bones.

Original Christmas Card #6: Santa Claus is Coming to Town (Sort of).

Once again, dark comedy prevails. Medium: Whiteout pen on black cardstock. I have a cold.  Noticed my throat was starting to get sore last night, and then came the drainage.  The wife has been sick for a week now, and I finally picked up her sickness. “In sickness and in health…” We promised to be...

Original Christmas Card #2: We Three Wise Guys

I thought about having the Three Wise Guys bring the Christ-child “an offer He couldn’t refuse,” but He’s the Son of God. If He can resist temptation in the desert for 40 days, I suspect there are very few offers He cannot refuse. So I decided to go with the Family’s secret cannoli recipe instead....
