Rolling Over 2012

Hey, check out this special comic celebrating 2012! I usually like to end off the year with these sort of look back type strips, but this year I decided to jazz it up a bit and make it more interactive. Let me know if you like it! Maybe I’ll do more of these.

This year kinda sucked a bit, but it could have been worse so here’s to a great 2013!

PS Check out these Dustinland comics looking back at other years:

The Holiday Spirit Cycle

Pretty simple comic for the 2012 holiday season. But it’s really true. As you get older, the holidays lose that magical feeling. When you’re a kid, the whole month of December glows. So much excitement and anticipation… all that time off of school, presents, maybe snow… it’s just a special time to look forward to every year. Then you grow old and it’s just….blah. Annoying holiday songs playing in every store for more than a month, grey skies, things you have to do replace things you want to do—basically, the holidays become a chore.

But then you become a parent and all of a sudden the excitement is back. It’s not the same, but it’s still there. You just see it through them… how much joy they get from the whole experience. And it’s not just about presents. That’s part of it, sure, but it’s more than that.

Anyway, happy holidays (a little bit late in terms of this post—sorry, I’ve been busy)!
