Nigella Santa

07 - Nigella Santa

Nigella Santa! Boobs, check. Big dollops of whipped cream, check. SCARY MAD EYES, check.

Today's Santa is for the entirely lovely and quite appallingly talented cartoonist, illustrator, blogger and spectacle-wearer Sarah McIntyre, and I hope she likes it. Getting to know Sarah, in our capacity as DFC Library colleagues (and latterly, I would like to think, as friends) has been a particularly lovely thing about this year. She's been inordinately generous and supportive as I've taken my first stumbling steps as a Published Author. We did a school event together earlier this year that really was a turning point for me in realising that public speaking and live events were not something to fear but something that it actually turns out I really enjoy and am actually kind of good at. But having Sarah there to hide behind made it all much less scary to begin with. So a very merry Christmas to Sarah! Why not go and buy her wonderful book Vern and Lettuce for someone as a Christmas present? It would look so lovely next to a copy of Mo-Bot High. HINT.

If you would like to suggest a Santa and have bought my book (I will accept a solemn promise that you intend to buy it, if you haven't), just let me know what Santa you'd like to see via twitter, facebook or the comments on this blog!

BONUS EXTRA SANTA coming right up...


  1. Ha ha... it's the eyes that kill me! You totally rock, Neill! xx

  2. I totally agree with Sarah, you do! I want to make a suggestion, as I am a fully paid-up member of the Owning Mo-Bot High posse... hmm, let's see... overweight Princess Leia cosplay Santa?

  3. Ha! That would be a big YES to that one, Laura.

    BTW, while I'm here, can I just say how *hugely* I enjoyed your Gilbert & Sullivan comic? Preposterously entertaining stuff - thanks so much for sending me one!

  4. You nearly made me spit Coke all over my keyboard :-D
