Office Holiday Spirit

Christmas cartoon of a grumpy businessman

Cartoon of a man in a santa suit and a grumpy businessman. The businessman says, “The office is in the holiday spirit. At least it is as soon as I leave it.”

I saw a production of A Christmas Carol last night. It had me thinking of what a modern-day Scrooge would look like. I know there are plenty around modern offices. I admit I haven’t decorated my cubicle or began shouting, “Ho, ho, ho!” yet.

There’s something about the crass commercialism part of Christmas that makes us feel uncomfortable. We take a religious holiday and make it a make-or-break buying bonanza. Even if our office depends upon this commercialism, it makes us feel uncomfortable, doesn’t it. O the avarice!

How to know you have a commanding presence

Wardrobe Crises


Cartoon of a girl in a tutu. She says to a boy, “€œThis morning, I had a wardrobe crises.”

I’ve had a busy week. So I took this sketch right out of one of my sketchbooks. You get to see one of my doodles, raw and with all its attitude. Maybe I would’ve gotten a finished file ready if I didn’t have a wardrobe malfunction this morning.
