‘Bang!’ – and the excited anticipation is gone…

By a stroke of happy coincidence, this week’s Illustration Friday topic, separated, neatly dovetails with today’s Advent App offering, so here are Ted and Herself ‘separating’ a cracker in time-honoured festive fashion. (The cracker-pulling action is rendered all the more authentic, as I’m sure you’ll agree, by the expressions of dismay as the [spectacularly disappointing] cracker gift spews from its [entirely inadequate] packaging, never to be ‘enjoyed’ in its intended form: everyone knows that, once that little cellophane bag is breached, at least one [and that’s all it takes, folks…] critical piece will disappear under an item of large, immovable furniture to forever thwart [tragically naive] attempts to complete the puzzle…).

    Ha! Cute but tragic. I hope poor Ted landed softly. Their expressions are great and I love the stocking-ed feet. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it but your writing style is terrific and funny aside from the great sketches.
