MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE



Merry Christmas everyone from Babooshka and Barker,  who designed the card


Early post just to say Merry Christmas to everyone who is celebrating and to those who aren't have a good day whatever you are doing. I'm sure like most people blogging is the last thing on our minds. Actually a glass of red that I'm drinking and mince pie are on mine. I'm raising a glass to you all as  I type.


This image is the card that Gary designed and printed. Like the Royal family, The Prime Minister, and the President we have an official card too that goes out to all.  The image for those of you not from the UK is Prime Minister Gordon Brown. I'll let your read the rest.  Good news today Gary will be doing another cartoon for the Daily Star again in Jan 4th, so watch out for that BBC Politics Show work now and then. For those of you that also don't know Gary's job at the BBC credit crunched last month, yes just before Christmas so anyone needing an illustrator see here. Did you know I am Gary's unofficial agent too.


Have a great time all. If anyone wants me to email them the card Gary said that's fine just this one time only. Let me know. As for the ones in the post, I hope you receive sometime. I.O.M post, terrible service.


Thanks to anyone who has clicked Google alerts too, an unexpected little bonus.


MERRY CHRISTMAS

As a person who used to do a lot of political cartooning and illustration, I thoroughly enjoyed the work presented and linked to this post. Nice.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and to your family.

Merry christmas to you both! The good news is that our politicians keep generating subjects for cartoons, the bad news is that newspapers aren't selling and the papers aren't buying cartoons.

I'm so glad to have found your blog in the past few months - I have enjoyed being a fan immensely. I find your wide variety of posts very interesting - so Thank You!
Hope you are having a lovely Xmas. So sorry to hear about Gary losing his job, but he's very talented and I hope he finds something in no time.
All the best to you in the coming year.

Many, many blessings at this holiday season.

I hope all goes well with Gary's job. What an awful time to have this happen.

i apologize for such limited commenting lately (and for this cut-and-paste today). Life has gotten in the way.

Chris

PS. Will email you privately today about something we talked about ages ago. . . .

Gail's Man said...

A very humorous card and I'm sure even now the fat cats are still getting fatter.

Best wishes to you and Gary and glad to hear that 2009 is starting slightly better for you.

Thanks for the all the visits and the kind comments B, especially on my Kate Rusby photo.

Apologies for the belated Christmas wishes. A family emergency (which thankfully proved to be non serious) put paid to most of the things I intended to do over the past few days. Hope you had a wonderful day.

A toast to you also and a wish for a very Merry Christmas. I wonder what Gary would create for the US automakers bail-out. I am so glad you post your beautiful pictures & write such interesting text, and so grateful for your encouragement thru your kind comments to me & so many of us.
