Cartoons for the holiday
CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE
This year I combined a recipe with cartoons. As you read the steps of my father’s recipe for latkes, the traditional fried potato pancakes eaten at Hanukkah, the cartoons tell a story. Like all holidays, this story involves food and family.
And my string of wallpaper designs continues with a Hanukkah pattern. It is made from the pieces that make up Hanukkah – food, games and love.
“Ah lichtige Hanukkah”, a bright and wonderful Hanukkah to all!
Try your hand at some latkes if you’ve never had them, they’re great!

Just for fun, and to prove to myself that I can make a cartoon about ANYTHING, I made these cartoons about us changing our clocks yesterday. This is something we do twice a year, ahead an hour in spring when we go on Daylight Savings Time, and back an hour in the fall when we go back to regular time. No one seems to know why we do this.
In between the silver anniversary (25 years) and the gold (50 years) comes the mini-comic anniversary at 32 years.
And in between photos of the assembled mini are its pages laid flat. Reading left to right then top to botttom are:
.the cover at the upper left,
.the two page center spread in between the interior pages at the upper right
.the back cover at the lower right with Our Cat chewing on my copyright
I also made a cartoon card, showing us stacking up all the wonderful years, while Our Cat tries to keep it all from falling over.
Happy Anniversary Lisa!!!!
