COMICTOID SPECIAL: Warmed, Melted Animal Goodness

Originally, I was going to make a rather bleak and depressing Christmas comictoid, one which I had been working on for a while unlike the somewhat rushed ones from the last few weeks. I was feeling rather angry during the Christmas shopping season that begun with black Friday due to a combination of stressful work, exams and people being so very nasty, but after my school vacation begun and I had time to enjoy things once more, the holiday spirit sneaked into me like a parasitic worm. I was able to play videogames again, and i needed something that would allow me to enter relaxation mode as effectively as possible. Animal crossing did the trick, and its snowy town landscape and friendly animal cuteness melted my stress completely.

I made this illustration to replace the original strip because i feel it represents my holiday mood much better. Hot coco and friends are what these few days are all about for me. The objective is always to be as god damn comfy as you can. No need for a lot of gifts and even decoration, just some sweaters, cold weather, friends, and some good god damn coco with melted marshmallows.

And also videogames, always videogames

I'll be posting the original sometime after the season's over, when Iíll probably get angry again, and I can find it funny once more.

Happy whatever you call it.
