How Holiday Daydreams Inspired Drooping Sales Figures


I’m starting to work on holiday cartoons now. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas …

I’m listening to Christmas carols for inspiration and it’s still 90 degrees outside. It’s weird, but you’ve got to have those seasonal cartoons ready to go.

This cartoon is kind of a reversal on that. I thought it up during December while hanging up some lights. That kind of droopy string suggested a sales graph idea to me, and this cartoon came out of it.

Now I’ve got to get back to thinking up snowmen gags before it’s time for all those Cupid jokes.
