Christmas’ End

It’s February, Jeff.

Fact of the matter is, this is early for us.  I mean, February’s not even half way over yet and most of our Christmas stuff is actually down and put away.

…thinking about it, maybe that’s why Jeff likes it here so much.  Because we leave our Christmas decorations up for so long.

Doodcember, Days 30 and 31 – Cheers and New

Holy moley, what a year.

So.  Here we are.

Doodcember is finally finished, just in the nick of time.  Had a great time doing it.

And at the same time, 2020 is coming to an end.

Thank.  GOD.

This has been an extraordinarily trying year.  We all went into it with such high hopes, and what did it give us?

Pain.  Never ending pain.

We were on the brink of World War III.  Australia was on fire.  The West Coast was on fire.  Murder hornets reared their ugly heads.  There were protests all Summer long.  And on top of all that, it was an Election year.  A really, really ugly Election year.

And of course – COVID.  Friggin’ COVID-19 upending just about everything, casting its nasty shadow across the entire world, highlighting the true depths of human stupidity.

…what a year.

On the plus side, I’ve ironically enough seen more of my friends than usual.  I’ve rediscovered an old character (Dot!) and created a new one (Quincy!).  I’ve participated in a couple of fascinating art challenges.  And I’ve started therapy.  So, a few high points.

So what is going to happen in 2021?  Who knows.  The fact is, the bar is set so low, and we are entering it bruised and bloodied.  So hopefully – HOPEFULLY – it can only go up from here.

Hopefully.

 

Doodcember, Days 23 and 24 – Card and Sleep

*GASP*

“Hey Drew, isn’t it a bit late to be doing prompts from two days ago?”

Maybe?  I dunno.  I had a idea for this Christmas Eve comic that I really liked, and I didn’t get around to doing it before Christmas.  So I’m doing it now.  Because I can.

Doodcember, Days 17, 18, and 19 – Snow, Boots, and Present

They got a little impatient and decided to open a gift early.

Three days in one!  Now I’m (mostly) caught up!

Also had to play that fun game of “I Haven’t Drawn These Characters in a While So I Have to Look Up an Old Drawing Just to Be Sure They Look Right.”
