Bearman “Retro” Cartoon: Shopping during the Holidays
This was one of the first cartoons I ever created back in December of 2005 for what became the Cincinnati Beacon.
I have no problem with whatever greeting people choose to use during the holidays. I just can’t stand when companies create a corporate mandate that says that an employee must say “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” over the other. I would be happy to hear “Happy Kwanzaa” or “Happy Hanukkah” from someone assuming they meant it from the heart. I don’t take offense, I take it as someone wishing me well during the season. My only question is why aren’t they just as friendly the rest of the year.
I would like to think that my style and ability has improved a little. But I am still a hack.
