A Holiday Announcement
« on: November 21, 2019, 07:26:50 AM »
So Paul Harris and I got to talking about the return of the Holiday Treat this year, which we last did in 2016, and it went something like this.  “I don’t know Paul it’s lotta work and a lotta time not sure I can spearhead it.”  To which Paul replied “Tell ya what I’ll do it and make it twice as big as last time.” To which I replied “You sure? it’s a bit to take on.”  But he insisted and here we are. 

I’m proud to announce the Holiday Parody Treat 2019. With not 3, not 4, no not even 5 or 6 but 8 artists joining in on the fun.  Paul not only doubled our last set but did two better and I’m blown away by what he’s accomplished!  Who’s part of the festivities you may ask, well I’ll tell ya. We have the Wacky Santa himself Neil Camera, ‘Off The Mark’s’ Mark Parisi, that Wacky Monster Chad Scheres, the Netherlands funniest parody artist Vincenzo ‘Chenduz’ D'Ippolito, the finest draftsman ever to hold a mechanical pencil Jon Gregory, Mr. ‘Fearsome Weirdo’ himself Robert Jimenez, the great gag meister Paul Harris and even yours truly contributed art and gags (and we may still get a last minute guest artist and an extra surprise?)  So I know the next burning question, “How can I acquire this rare Holiday delight for myself?” Well that’s easy!  If anyone who’s been a forum member since the beginning of this year wants a set, just pm me by ‪Nov 30‬ with 'Holiday Treat 2019' in the subject line, send me your mailing address and that’s it, a Holiday Treat postcard set will be yours in time for the Holidays.

In the spirit of the holidays, this is all "gratis" to the Forum and its great members and fans, no need to do or send anything, but simply sit back and enjoy!

Paul and I are thrilled to be able to do this once again and can’t thank the artists enough for all their wonderful contributions.  All mailings will (hopefully) go out by the second week of December so everyone should get them in time for the Holidays.

Also as requests are already coming in, I’ll be collating all names after Thanksgiving and sending out confirmations then.

the collection is incredible, you will all be very pleased! 

Joe and I couldn't do this without help from a lot of generous, wonderful artists, and I wish we could
have made this an even bigger set, maybe next year?

Let's get by this holiday first, though, no?   8)

Brian, Jeff, Marc, Mike, Debra and Paul, it’s a pleasure and is really a testament to Paul Harris’s boundless energy and enthusiasm for Wackys!  The artwork is wonderful but Paul is really the catalyst that made it all happen!

Quick Note:  i’ve gotten a few requests directly to my email address.  Please PM through the forum as that’s how I keep track.  I can’t promise you’ll get one unless you PM.  Right after Thanksgiving I’ll go through, collate all names and PM confirmations back to everyone.
