Fur Rondy - Run, Reindeer Run
I got the opportuntity to do another comic strip for Anchorage's Fur Rondy Guide and decided to play off of this year's new attraction, the Running of the Reindeer. 500 men and 30 or so Reindeer running down the streets of Anchorage, hopefully. No one is quite sure how it's going to come off. Mass goreings, reindeers standing idle, drunken douchbags trying to ride the scared animals. . . it's anyone's guess. I'll see it this afternoon. Here's hoping for a fiasco!
Oh, and here are some quick, dirty and fun illustrations I did for the guide which were going to be intersperced throughout the guide, but ended up being a coloring book segment. The theme I picked was kids freezing themselves outside while waiting for the fun to begin.
