Ho Ho Hold The Nuts by Joel | Dec 9, 2013 | Comics | 7 comments 7 Comments foxlore on December 11, 2013 at 4:37 am Fired? At Christmas…say it ain’t So So Sooo. ;-) And speaking of Peanuts, it’s about time for the annual viewing of ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’. :-D Joel on December 11, 2013 at 12:41 pm Dun dun dunnnnn… I’m playing around with some longer story ideas. It will be challenging to do it in a weekly strip. One part plan, one part flying by the seat of my pants. I really like drawing over the holidays and listening to the Vince Guaraldi Trio sound track from the Charlie Brown Christmas special. Silent Knight on December 13, 2013 at 3:47 pm If she is fired, then she is no longer “The Super Cute Barista”, so what do we call her. Maybe she will get a job at Pete’s Bar. Joel on December 16, 2013 at 12:33 am I call her the ‘SCB’ for short. I guess people can come up with their own acronym. Super Cute Blonde? Super Cute Bartender? Super Cute Baker? (Hmm… She may want to think on that last one…) Mr. Chaotic on July 14, 2017 at 7:50 am ‘SCB’? That brought the word succubus to mind… I’m sure she’s fiiiine! Bill Murphy on December 17, 2013 at 11:09 am Ha, ha! Poor Santa didn’t mean any harm. I like how you broke the panels up by flipping the silhouettes. :D Joel on December 17, 2013 at 1:00 pm Thanks Bill. Where I normally write in 3 or 4 panel beats, pushing to 5 is normally my comfortable limit with regards to drawing space unless I can come up with a fun way to make more space, as in this strip. Playing with panel design, spacing and timing is something I really like about strip cartooning. Often overlooked. Appreciate the nod!
