Santa Puncture

Santa Puncture

This cartoon is indicative of the inherent perils Santa must face as he delivers gifts on Christmas Eve.

Autopilot

Autopilot

I could have easily included many other items rhyming with ‘hair’, but the list items were becoming a bit obscure and it probably would have been overkill.

Ice Christmas

Ice Christmas

This cartoon was a part of a few different ideas I had for Christmas cards. I hope to colour the others at some point and include them in the Colour Gallery as well, but in the mean time, keep an eye out for them within the Black & White gallery.

Shark Bait

Shark Bait

This cartoon was created quite some time ago, but I have only recently revisited and coloured it. A few improvements were also made along the way.
