I hate the holiday cliche cartoons. I got through Halloween without any and almost made it through Thanksgiving (not counting the cartoon I’ll have to do for Thursday which will be all about giving thanks and blah blah blah because my editor loves those kind of cartoons and it’s required here). I don’t feel too bad about drawing this turkey, and I actually like drawing turkeys. They’re fun. I hate drawing anything Christmas. Every cliche for Christmas is boring like Santa, Xmas trees, candy canes, elves, reindeer, etc. I promise I won’t draw anyone sitting on Santa’s lap with a wish list.
