TOUGHPIGS Sesame Street/Comics Mashup Contest Entries: The Runners-Up

The Top Muppet fan website I often do artwork for, TOUGHPIGS, ran a contest for the best artwork combining SESAME STREET Muppets with elements of comic book /strip characters. Twenty artists entered around forty pieces and I contributed twelve myself. The runners-up were announced on the site today and these are my pieces that made that  category..(I'll post any further winning pieces, if any, in a later post.)

After Thanksgiving Dinner

Salem News: Thanksgiving 2015

My cartoon from the 11/26/2015 SALEM NEWS. In a way, the paper itself proved the point of my cartoon. When I bought the paper this morning, it was HUGE, at least FIVE TIMES as thick as it normally is because of all the Black Friday sales flyers and inserts (which I promptly tossed into the recycling bin) shoved inside. Them's the times, I guess.

I admit this is based on theory. But I wouldn't be surprised if this was a common occurrence.
