New Year Fix-it Penguins

Every year I’m asked to draw a cartoon for Lennon’s Small Jobs, a fix-it business owned by Mary Lennon, for a New Year’s greeting for her clients. Over the last few years we’ve developed a penguin character who always shows up to fix a problem for one of its hapless clients, so this year’s was:


When we started this years ago, I asked Mary what were the jobs that she is most frequently asked to do, and we made a list of them so I can use situations that her clients are most familiar with in the cartoons.  In past years we have used jobs such as painting rooms, fixing leaky shower heads and faucets, and power-washing decks. On the back of this postcard she wishes her clients a Happy New Year and thanks them for their business, in addition to marketing her services.
