Ho’s Christmas ho ho ho post…

Every year, some of my most popular posts are the ones for which Ho creates the seasonal artwork.

Ho, my old friend and consummate blog-toonist in residence has provided festive illustrations and Diary of an Internet Nobody Christmas cards for the last few years, but this year he’s outdone himself with a fantastic do it yourself Christmas tree decoration. I’ll pass you over to the artist himself for the all-important instructions.

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s Ho:

” Step One – Print out the image at approximately A4 size. (If you don’t have a printer, visit a library or someone bored in an office). There is a nice colourful version, or a black and white one so you can have fun colouring in the Trump-fairy yourself.

Step Two – With scissors, carefully cut around the outline of the main shape and the Trump-fairy’s head. You may want to ask an adult to help you with this. Do NOT cut the Trump-fairy’s throat, however tempting this may be.

Step Three – Cut along the dotted lines and fold around so that the slits interlock.

Step Four – Fold back the Trump-fairy’s wing sections at the half-way point, to make them nice and flappy.

Step Five – Cut out the Trump-fairy’s hat, cut a slit at the dotted line, and pop it on his head.

Step Six – Impale the Trump-fairy through the arse (or hang) on the top of your Xmas tree. Hey Presto ! Your Xmas Trump-fairy Tree Decoration is finished.

Why not send us photos of your impaled / hung Trump-fairy, we’d love to see them.

{Should you, for some strange reason, not wish to display a Trump-fairy on your Xmas tree, they also make excellent (if brief) candles. You will therefore be carrying on the grand tradition, initiated by a legion of students, of ‘lighting your own Trump’.}

A Ho-made festive product, you’re welcome. Happy Solstice   xx “

**********
Thank you, Ho, for that stroke of creative genius, I look forward to seeing you again soon. I’m sure I join with all my readers in wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

#atozchallenge: Z is for Zebra…

image

So here we are at the end of my first ever A-Z challenge and I must say, I’ve enjoyed it immensely.

Not only have I been able to indulge my tendency to talk rubbish, every day for a month, I’ve also had a chance to meet some great new bloggers, promote the skills of a talented local face painter and inflict some of my new sonic experiments on you.

Well today, I’m featuring artwork from two of my occasional contributors; Audrey and Ho.

Audrey suggested that I picked “Zebra” for my final post, but I don’t have a lot to say about those, so I asked her to draw me a picture instead;

Meanwhile, resident blogtoonist, Ho was commissioned to create an illustration for a little puzzle to finish this alphabetical odyssey.

Having tested this pictorial conundrum on Rhonda and elicited only a blank look, I’m not convinced the Americans among my readership will get it (maybe it’s not a thing over there) but I’m sure someone out there will feel a metaphorical lightbulb pop into existence above their head when they see it.

There is no prize, other than knowing you have similar random thought processes to myself, but that’s an achievement in itself, so;

What is the relevance of this fabulous toon to the A-Z challenge?

Answers in the comments please.

Thank you for sticking with me for this month of nonsense and blathering, I’ve just got one more thing for you before normal(ish) service resumes next week; another new tune, and this one is a corker, even if I do say so myself.

The twelve toons of Christmas: Day twelve…

Okay, we’ve finally reached the day when I can reveal the 2015 Diary of an Internet Nobody Christmas card.

Ho has done a fabulous job with his toons this year, not only for this run up to the Yuletide festivities, but whenever else I’ve called on his services to provide unique and amusing illustrations for blog posts.
So thank you old friend, it’s been a hoot (and I know you’ve picked up several new fans in the process; the lovely Dr Rex, for one) and I’m sure I will continue to call upon your artistic skill in the the coming year.

But for now, let’s enjoy the brilliance of all of this year’s offerings, combined with the final toon, to make a card you can print off and proudly display in your living room, to be the envy of all your friends.

Happy Christmas everyone.

The twelve toons of Christmas: Day eleven…

So, the Christmas shopping is done, the presents are wrapped, the decorations are up and there’s only one card I haven’t posted yet.
The bespoke Diary of an Internet Nobody greetings card, created by Ho for your seasonal enjoyment, will arrive here tomorrow, but for now here’s his final daily toon for this year, a slightly suspect Santa.

Be careful what you wish for…

The twelve toons of Christmas: Day ten…

With only three sleeps left until the big day, we are down to the final festive trio of toons, the last of which will double as this year’s seasonal greeting card from the blog to you, my lovely readers.

For this, his pen-penultimate offering, Ho has provided us with a crazy Christmas canine to brighten a decidedly damp and drizzly December day.

Woof.

The twelve toons of Christmas: Day nine…

Today we enter the final phase of our festive frolic in the cartoon countdown to Christmas.
Who needs nine ladies dancing when you can have one existentially insecure bird on a fork?

Nobody, that’s who.

For the eighth day of toon-mas, my friend Ho sent to me,
A snow-covered festive piggy.
