I'm headed home! Here are some holiday drawings before I go. Ken in the Nativity Scene is there just because I remember both owning Hollywood Ken (he had stars on his pants and the word HOLLYWOOD on his t-shirt) and trying to play with the figures in Mom's Nativity scene. I mean let's face it: they're dolls right? Amirite. The problem was that they were all puny next to the Barbies and that is a problem, because no doubt Mary would consider a man-about-town like Hollywood Ken to be the foster father of her miracle child, but she only went up to his hip, so Joseph was a more reasonable choice in the end.

As for Hunks, you may remember this twitter comic I made about meeting my neighbours:

I had to make a comic out of it in some way right! Here are some things that will always be funny to me:
butts
hunks and babes
people lying on the floor
top gun

And that is the secret to anything I have ever made.

Will you be in New York between Christmas and New Years?

Then come to the third Crime Stoppers Club, a show put on by Michael Kupperman and myself, this month featuring the great talents of Julia Wertz, Anthony Devito, Mitch Magee, Julie Klausner and MARK TWAIN!

That's December 27th, at Luca Lounge in the East Village! Clicka that link hey why not

Oh one more thing - if you're back in Cape Breton for Christmas like me, I'm going to do a little signing or meet and greet sort of thing on Boxing Day in my hometown, Mabou. It's at the museum - An Drochaid, the Gaelic and Historical Society building - at 7:30pm. Be sure to drop by and say hello before the dance starts, hmm?

You've got me thinking about little girls getting replicants (or androids) for Xmas.

This thought, it entertains me, as does the last panel of the nutcracker and Santa's "Him"-like smile (PowerPuff Girls).

I love the whole set, but Clara's turned head in the first panel? That is so dang elegant and pretty. As are the nutcracker's hands. Just... wow.

Thanks Kate. Now I will forever see Santa's face like a pair of cock and balls.

God bless us everyone.

Considering that Joseph had nothing to do with the conception, he might as well have been Ken-doll smoove.

First time I ever had a complaint. The hunks did not show off enough butt. I think butt is the second or third thing I look for in your work. You draw amazing butts. That is all.

Haha, the Ken one. We have a seperate nativity set just for the kids my mum babysits to play with. My dad asked my 2 year old cousin if she wanted to watch TV yesterday, and she replied 'No, I'm playing with Jesus.'

Kate Beaton! I wrote a poem very similar to your Nutcracker cartoon, except very mean and not at all funny.

Re: Nativity sets. Yup - made to be played with (unless the figures were breakable.) Our creche is up, but we don't allow baby Jesus or the Magi to be around the stall until their proper entrances. So the Magi are now chilling with the Pigs in Space crew in the Swinetrek, and baby Jesus is cuddled in the loving embrace of my puppet/shoulder dragon.

Merry Christmas!

I love love love them all, especially the hunks one, but the art in the Nutcracker one is spectacular. Clara's turned head looks really realistic and elegant.

Awwwr nothing happening in Halifax while you're in the province? (Not that I'd even be likely to catch it, as I have to spend my holiday split between North Rustico and Miramichi.) Oh well! Merry Xmas from someone at Pier 21. :D

If the girl is nice, she'd at least loan her two of her hunks to her mother. She looks like she could us a little excitement.
