On old gag cartoon for the Oldie

Here's another bit of old christmas illustration (this one's from 2008).  It was originally a rough for an editorial.  They went for another idea in the end but they thought it'd make a good gag cartoon.  Three gold stars if you can guess the caption we used


  1. Ha. Like the background shape and style. And the hat. Like the hat.

    Hmmm. I'll have to think about the caption.

  2. I went through a phase of putting most of my spot illustrations in kidney shapes for some reason. They seemed to work quite well to frame characters. I'll be interested to see if you come up with anything, I came up with some real stinkers while brainstorming it. I'll post the actual caption in a couple of days in the comments section...

  3. Final caption: "at about that age I started to suspect that I didn't exist"
