This weird idea was sparked by fellow blogger Bella Sinclair. I thought it was funny when she said she accidently typed 'elvises' instead of elves in a comment she left. It only takes one word to send me off cartooning. So, thank you, Bella.
I don't know if this is the best solution for that word play, but it's what I eventually came up with, and I must like it because I spent an awful lot of time coloring it.
Hmmm.. guess I haven't been portraying Santa's Workshop too favorably in the last couple of cartoons. I've just always wondered how they do it; billions of toys made in just 365 days... and the pictures I've seen usually only portray a small group of elves doing it ALL. There has to be a few Norma Ray outbursts now and then. I wonder what the mortality rate is for an elf slave? There's always a couple goof-offs at every workplace too, who picks up the slack for them? I would like to see the elf graveyard just outside of Santa's Village. Bet it's huge.
