Perhaps some day, you will be ready. Until then, Mogwai waits.

“The worst thing that ever happened to me was on Christmas.  Oh, God.  It was so horrible.  It was Christmas Eve.  I was 9 years old.  Me and Mom were decorating the tree, waiting for Dad to come home from work.  A couple hours went by.  Dad wasn’t home.  So Mom called the office.  No answer.  Christmas Day came and went, and still nothing.  So the police began a search.  Four or five days went by.  Neither one of us could eat or sleep.  Everything was falling apart.  It was snowing outside.  The house was freezing, so I went to try to light up the fire.  That’s when I noticed the smell.  The firemen came and broke through the chimney top.  And me and Mom were expecting them to pull out a dead cat or a bird.  And instead they pulled out my father.  He was dressed in a Santa Claus suit.  He’d been climbing down the chimney… his arms loaded with presents.  He was gonna surprise us.  He slipped and broke his neck.  He died instantly.  And that’s how I found out there was no XXXXX XXXXX.” ~ Gremlins, 1984

Ok… that’s not a real story from my life but in my Springfield, it is always Christmas lol.  I blocked those last two words just in case any of y’all have tiny tapper buddies.  So… I’ve been slacking lately on doing 2D with all the Halloween shenanigans to mess with, but today I decided to get off my DUFF and make some art.

A little while back, one of my buddies over at Tapped-Out.co.uk. did me a favor and I promised him a 2D just for him.  I planned on doing a Simpsons Gremlin for Otto Mann (aka Chris J.) to ram his bus in to but found out this was already done by another one of my 2D peeps.  Well, what to do now?  The other Gremlins are too scary for TSTO, right?  Well, I went out on the internet and found a pretty great image I wanted to do.
