Jeff, Frank and Steve, our pleasure and so glad youíre enjoying the set! Mark, well Iím in the same boat you are as I have yet to receive a set.  We wanted to make sure the forum members got theirs by the Holidays so forum sets went out before those to the artists!  Iím hoping Iíll get mine next week.

I'm guessing that most everyone on the East Coast has gotten theirs by now,
and those further west will get them soon, if not today?

And I can't thank all the great artists involved who participated in this, we'll definitely
do something again in the near future!

My holiday treat was delivered to the front office of my apartment complex this morning. I've stopped by the office a couple of times, but it appears the manager took the rest of the day off because it's been closed all afternoon.

Mine showed up. Yay! It's a great set (as good as I herd!  ;) ) and just in time for Christmas.

Thank you all so much for this very merry treat.

After a slow start, 2019 ended up very Wacky after all :great:

Daryl and Jeff, thanks for the kind words and Ernie, Iím kinda partial to Milk Cuds myself!  The fitbite art is by the great Jon Gregory, who does give an amazing classic feel to his characters.  Yes, I agree Brian, no spoilers, everyone should have their sets in a few days but please no posting any images until the New Year.

I just got my set today and it's absolutely great!

Now if I can just get the first four that I missed out on, I'm all set!

Here are pics of the first four Holiday Postcards for those that have never seen them:

Got my set Thursday, didnít get a chance to look at them until yesterday, but WOW!  I was anticipating something more like Wacky roughs or sketches, but these are official Wacky caliber!  And postcard sized!  And ten of them!  Thereís more Iíd like to say about some of the titles but want to steer clear of spoiler territory.

Much thanks to Joe and Adam for the kind and generous gesture.  I hope the project was as rewarding for you to do as it was for us to receive!  Best wishes for your holidays!

Like Moldrush, I too received mine in the mail on Thursday but didn't get a chance to open them and peruse them until yesterday.  They were well worth the wait!  All of the artists involved did a fabulous job with this set!  I'm having a difficult time picking any as my favorite because they're all so funny and professionally drawn, painted, and printed.  However, My Armadillo really tickled me because I see the stupid commercial on TV so often....ha!  Thanks once again to everyone involved in putting this set together and making this a super Wacky Christmas for all of us here on the Forum.  I hope Santa rewards all of your generosity with extra presents under the tree--or the Hanukkah Armadillo if you're Jewish (reference to a Friends episode, for those of you scratching your heads....).

Tom, Paul and Bill, itís our pleasure and so glad you guys enjoyed the set.  My Armadillo is based on a gag by our own Paul Harris and painted by the great George Wright!  This is the first year George has contributed his talents to the Holiday Treat and Paul and I are so thrilled to have him on board!

Apologies for not mentioning the rest of the creative team involved, no wonder such a high quality mini-set was turned around so quickly!  So a shout out to you guys as well!
