As I type this post, here in East Tennessee, we are just two hours away from the first day of December. The store has been decorated for Christmas and we just wrapped up our Black Friday weekend blowout and holiday food drive. (You can see photos HERE.) For me, this means that the Christmas Holiday is in full swing.
The Christmas Holiday is the one time of year I do holiday themed comics.
In 2009, I drew my very first Christmas comic.
I thought it was pretty funny but decided it was a bit too dire for the holiday. I tried again.
I think it’s safe to say, I’m much less obscure now in my comics.
In 2010, I gave the Christmas comic another shot.
I sent this one out in a mass email and got some nice feedback from family and friends. I printed it out on a card and sent it out to a dozen people. I felt good about it.
Christmas 2011 rolled around and I never found time for a Christmas comic. I was working on my Pamo Zine at the time and [insert uninteresting excuse here].
Then in 2012, I was working in a long strip format and did another Christmas comic.
I decided to print it out nearly full size and make a kind of pop out Christmas card. Open up the card and unfold a full length comic strip. I sent it out to thirty people. This small act of giving made Christmas time more fun.
I liked the pop out Christmas card comic so much, I did it again last year. This time, I sent it out to sixty people and had a complete blast! It’s a wonderful way to share my comics and spread a bit of holiday cheer.
Pamo’s World 2014 Christmas comic is nearly complete. I’m finishing up the color and am almost ready to print. I’ve got the card shells ordered and a new rolling ball pen at the ready to write out addresses. All I need now is people to send it to.
If you would like your very own Pamo’s World Christmas comic delivered to your door, email me at email@example.com . All I need is your name and address and in return, you will receive a little slice of Christmas cheer!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
