At the end of every year, I draw my little cartoon, turning it into a holiday card. I share it with friends and family, in hopes to bring a smile, but I feel like I am the only one left who sends cards. Writing and sending physical cards is a dying art.

Over the holiday, I went to the Postal Museum in Washington DC. I remember when collecting stamps was a cool thing to do. I collected them as a youth and I still do. I definitely recommend you check the museum out if you are in the area. And maybe try stamp collecting yourself (or with your child). It’s a great way to learn about history and the world. There are so many subjects such as nature (flowers, birds, national parks), pop culture (Elvis, Wonder Woman), and important figures (JFK, Amelia Earhart). It was nice to reminisce, at the museum, how important writing and sending physical letters were, before everything went digital.

Anyway, back to my card writing, over time, my cartoon has become less Christmasy and more of a way to flesh out my characters through stories. It makes me happy to share something creative and then at least I receive words of appreciation, not by a card, but by a text message. Oh well. It’s better than nothing I suppose.

This year, my cartoon comes with a special message.
Happy 2018 Everybody!
