A Rejected Christmas Cartoon
This cartoon was also rejected with the batch I posted a couple of days ago but, for some reason, I hadn't included it in that post. I think the reason I didn't include it is because I actually love this cartoon. It's thankfully not that rare that a cartoon I draw makes me laugh out loud but those that do produce a guffaw can instantly become a favourite. I also think this is one where I got the style I wanted and the humour is precisely my own. Yet I begin to suspect that's my problem. I wonder if my humour isn't mainstream enough. Maybe it's just not sophisticated enough or even (a horrible thought) suitably middle class. I just don't know except I guess this cartoon requires a certain dark outlook on life. It doesn't 'read' funny. I doubt if there's even a gag. It's just about the juxtaposition of something banal against something quite evil and that, in my book at least, is always good for fun.
