Laughter and books make life a little easier

Merry Christmas! Also, a downloadable, printable Christmas present for you!

Hi everyone! So, remember that I promised to release a Christmas gift that will be free for download to everyone that reads my blog? Right. So, that will be available shortly, only Adobe is being ridiculous right now, and I will update as soon as it is available.

UPDATED! See below! 😀


In the mean time, Merry Christmas from my new book and I!


Yes, that is the one that I spoke about in my last post. Also, check out my festive nail polish! Smile


Here is also a Christmas quote that I decorated:Christmas1

I decided on the calm colour scheme, because that is supposed to mirror the peace of the day.

Right, I’ll be back soon!




The gift is available for download!

All you need to do is go to my sidebar, —>

to the Box widget, directly underneath the About C&C-thing. And then you can download it right there by clicking on the icon labelled “Discworld”.


Now you are asking what is it, right? Well, it is a calendar, made by yours truly. Not much to see of my usual cartoons, but instead it is my compilation of the wit and wisdom of the Discworld-series of books by Sir Terry Pratchett. As you should know by now, Pratchett is one of my absolute favourite authors and I just love collecting quotes from his series. It is characterised by being witty and humorous, but also by having a sting in the tail – a little social consciousness. So, if you love his work, like me, or if you just want to check it out for yourself, go and collect this calendar for yourself, just in time for the new year!

And before you ask again, yes, this is completely free. Why? Well, obviously I could have asked money for it, and maybe I would even have made a little something from a project like this. Firstly, I don’t have access to receiving, or paying, money online. So that kind of handicaps me. And secondly, I love a free download just as much as anyone else, especially at Christmas time. Enjoy it – it is obligation free, though I would love it if you left me a comment if you do download it. I’d love to hear what you think!


Okay… the details…

Here’s a little preview of what you will find inside:

It consist of 13 pages: one for each month, plus the cover. Each page is slightly smaller than A4 landscape size – I thought a little white-space could be handy if you wanted to hole-punch it or something. It comes as a single PDF-format download of about 5MB. Each page has, on average, two Discworld quotes, and also two drawings of Discworld paraphernalia. Like the Luggage, there above. What would the Discworld be without the Luggage? Oh yes, and it comes on a background of distressed paper. All the wit must have upset it… 😛


I hope you enjoy this, oh, and tell your friends, if you like! 🙂 Happy Christmas (what’s left of it, in certain parts of the world)!

    • Thank you, I’m glad you like it! 😀 Vector art actually takes a lot less time than most people think, because of the advanced copy and paste functions. Thanks for the comment!

    • Thank you! It is still available. Just scroll up to the top and look for the box labelled “Cartoondramas downloads”. I’m going to leave it up until the end of the month.
