In 2008 I was asked by the Comics Journal to contribute a list of ideas for a sort of year end gift guide thing. I drew these two strips instead... and then decided not to be a pest, and sent in a real list. But I've been going through these old sketchbooks lately, as part of a book project, came across these, and realized I never did put them up. Posting them today in honor of the shortest day of the year. Or whatever.
