“What do you want for Christmas, mom?” I asked during our weekly phone conversation a couple of weeks ago.
“You don’t have to get me anything,” she replied, as she does every year.
“Seriously, mom, what would you like?” I pressed.
Finally, she said shed like a comic about herself. “You can even make fun of me, if you want,” she said, then added that I could post it on the website if I wanted,
So, for the last two weeks, I’ve pondered and considered and thought. I’m not sure I can make fun of my mother in a comic. It just doesn’t feel right.
But we’ll see. I’ve told her the electronic version will be up before the holiday, and that I’ll mail a physical copy to her this week. I think I have an idea, but we’ll see if I can make it translate to the comic or not.
In the meantime, have a quick sketch of me and my mom.
