Cupids are Going for a Share of the Leprechaun Market

valentine cartoon

Cupid is a pain to draw.

You’ve got the wings, the bow, the quiver, the arrow, the diaper… there’s a lot to get across in a character that’s tiny by design.

So for me to draw five of them in a meeting takes a really, really good idea. Turns out that Cupids trying to steal business away from Leprechauns before St. Patrick’s Day is one of those really good ideas.

I’d also considered throwing hiding Easter eggs into the mix, but then the caption was getting to be more of an essay instead of a few sentences.

Still, that bunny should watch his back.

  1. Hahaaaaa! Imagine if it’s what Cupid really did?!!! Like he’s this really cute thing that’s about love, but behind that cute face is a calculating mind with a high business acumen. Lol!

  2. Haha cupids taking leprechauns? I’d love to see that. If only that is really some business where they can have some money. But then again, it is a refresher in the world of business.
