A feature about the nightmare of Christmas time from bad presents and office parties to needleless trees and overexcited kids.
In addition to a rash caused by bad face cream, the copy mentions a gift of a shirt/jacket hybrid (shacket) resembling that worn famously by Chairman Mao. Hopefully this explains the surprise appearance of the communist leader at the office party!
Classic Xmas Day dad.
Sand & The City
This piece is about temporary and permanent European city beaches. Amusing and not too child orientated was the brief, with each illo combining a couple of cities and all kinds of fun.
Brussels & Moscow – volleyball, frisbee, a camel's skull, some sexy ladies and musclebound hunks on jetskis? Check.
Berlin & Copenhagen – the temporary German beach featuring a dub soundsystem, cocktail bar and hammocks being "rolled up" to make way for a Danish BBQ.
Budapest & Vienna – natural springs and nudists sharing ice creams with policemen under willow trees.
