St. Patrick's Day Greetings

Hey. I wanted to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day to people. I decided to create a greeting cartoon for my blog at the last minute—the night before St. Patrick’s Day. I started with rough sketches, drawing a picture of a bear holding a mug and signing “Beer”. But I wanted to add a character that said something related to St. Patrick’s Day. I sketched a female Leprechaun character signing “Kiss me, I’m Irish”. Nah, more work for a little time, so I dumped her. I looked back at the bear with the mug. The idea of the sign “beer” bothered me a little. Kind of not appropriate. That greeting is for anyone, including kids. That idea was thrown out. But after studying the sketches quickly, I made another draft of the same bear only with the same sign originally used for that (sexy) Leprechaun character. Not bad. I did the final cartoon above.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Celebrate responsibly.
