Christmas Socks!

I've always liked getting socks for Christmas, and never fully got the reason so many kids in cartoons were angry at getting them. But then I live where there can be snow on the ground from October to April, so what do I know.
Enjoy the final comic strip of 2017!

Yep, another Christmas drawing! Even Coco is getting festive! Turtle brought everything, and The Magpies are helping.

Baby it's cold outside

Although at the time of this comics creation, it's been in the balmy single digits and on and off in the positives even (weather-wise) here. Which is ridiculous for this time of year on the prairies! Normally it's at least -15 or -20 Celsius!

I'm sure these were the original lyrics...

If you happen to be offended by this, please note, we are making fun of the LYRICS to a song, not Jesus or our Faith. If you are NOT offended, Yay! Go Team Sense of Humour!

In which we change the words

This song actually makes me sad. That is, until we get to that particular line...

Getting Creative

When we were kids, we had to get creative on what we gave each other for Christmas. There was a lot of origami (not real origami, just a lot of folded paper that resembled something) and hand drawn pictures. When Jeanne taught me how to sew, I started making people travel pillows.
I remember sitting across the table from Thomas when he was making this 3D paper toy for me. He had a bunch of books set up so that I couldn't see what he was doing. The little Bomberman character (it's from a video game I never played but we used to make comics about) he made was composed entirely of construction paper and scotch tape. I think I still have the head somewhere. It was very impressive!

Jacques & Kay: Magpie Decorations

I read a lot of articles that stated that Magpies aren't actually shiny-mad as people thought, and in some instances were repulsed by the shiny objects. But in my brief research, I also found a lot of personal accounts of magpies and crows taking things they found interesting. When you get down to it, they are just naturally clever and inquisitive birds who will do  what they want.

The Nose Knows

Olie never opened the presents. Even on Christmas Day, you had to open the gift for her, and she would tear the paper into smaller bits after. Which was much harder to clean up!

Gaming the System

Prepare yourself, I'm-a gonna be doing a lot of Christmas/Winter themed comics this month!

My parents used to do desert (mostly cheesecake) parties with friends and family members around Christmas, but 'bed time' was still a thing. If memory serves, I managed to stay up about an extra half hour. My plan was fool proof!

Jacques & Kay: The Magpies

The Magpies just want to look after their family, regardless of whether or not they are actually related.

Stupid Teeth...

My braces came off YEARS ago, and I still bite my lip hard enough to draw blood. Whyyyyyyyyyy?

She has a lot of thoughts

I learned many things that night. Like there are only 2 boy colours but a zillion girl colours.

Sharing is Caring

Breaking bread and sharing germs, that's how toddlers make friends. Fortunately, Chris has 3 little brothers and a little sister, so he's mostly used to babies doing gross stuff.
If you're wondering what she tried to give him, it was a piece of sausage.

Jacques & Kay: A Change in Season

Jacques has been gradually growing in his winter coat and camouflage since autumn hit. I think Yotin's intelligence status has dropped slightly in Jacques head.

Took a wrong turn at Albuquerque

We finish off the Halloween comics with the King of Monsters: Godzilla! A very lost, very confused Godzilla. Hope everyone has a fun Halloween!

Jacques & Kay: Familiar Part 3

Kay has a different power over Nature, while Jacques has the power of love and friendship.

I Predict Success

This method also works when you are lost in the woods. Take out a pack of cards, start playing solitaire and someone will find you to tell you how to play.

Jacques & Kay: Familiar Part 2

Jacques and Turtle, as I said, should not be left unsupervised. Fortunately, Kay keeps a birds eye view on things. An ear on things too!

My what big teeth you have...

Don't tackle-hug a real wolf. They don't like it.
Thus begins the 'Once Upon A Donna Halloween Sort Of Spooktacular Comic Strip Spectacular'. I enjoyed doing this last year, so I will continue with Fall and Halloween themed comics for the remainder of October. Hope you enjoy!

Jacques & Kay: Familiar Part 1

Turtle and Jacques should not be left unsupervised. Jacques is too trusting, and Turtle is too dumb.

Thanksgiving Copy-Cat

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers! Enjoy the Harvest and the Holiday!

Changing the Words

John can play any song he hears on the piano.... but he never remembers the words...
This is the song they are singing: Heigh Ho - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It Never Fails...

Stupid Body! Why didn't I get sick for that 8hr meeting?!? I could've missed that, and been fine with it!

Kung Fu Fighting

I still sometimes think about taking up some sort of martial arts, just to know and keep in shape with. As it is the only thing I have is Wrestling from High School, and Zumba.
I also like watching martial arts films because I like to think about how I would translate the fight into an animation. I'm weird, I know.

Holding Out

Of course there are exceptions...
Also, I really love drawing the personifications of nature.

Don't Look at Me

I don't like people examining my face, and I don't know if they are aware that I see them looking at me.

Jacques & Kay: Sugar Rush

I looked it up, apparently some pet rabbits will get into people candy.

New Phone Procedure

It's not the iPhone X or 8 if you're wondering, that would cost money.

The Dangers of Drawing in Bed

This also happens when the nephews and nieces are playing in my room, only it's toys I find.

Dog on the Loose

*baby talk translation: "Grumpiest Little Grump"
I was leaving from my grandma's house, and quite frankly was more concerned about running the dog over than of being bitten by her.

Jacques & Kay: Mitsukuni is TOO cute

Mitsukuni is a Vole, and has problems with his eyesight. Crows have been known to eat mice, frogs, lizards and small birds, so I don't think a vole is out of the question. Unless Jacques happens to be there.
