No, I won’t make excuses. Simple fact is, Christmas – while being a holiday – is also a horrid, draining chore that sucks the very life from a person. Well, at least, that’s what I like to tell my three year old nephew.

So anyway, I need a break, and so I’m taking one over Christmas, and am even going on a holiday to Thailand with my gal Claire (I will bring each of you back an actual, genuine 100% real Rolex). The long and the short of it is: no more cartoons ’til about mid-January on The Rut and Pencils at Dawn. I’ve got plenty of ideas knocking about the place, but it will only be after the holidays thatΒ I’ll actually get a chance to draw them up.

In the meantime, have a happy holiday and may you all come through last-minute Christmas shopping with all your limbs intact.
