Pilgrims and Indians

Happy Thanksgiving! It's always been my favorite holiday. All you have to do is cook and eat. Nothing more is expected. Maybe watch some football. Here's a cartoon from a few years ago. I stumbled upon an old sketchbook with the initial doodles for this cartoon. Also, a strange drawing of old boats on the horizon in pen, ink and crayon. I always seemed to gravitate toward Pilgrims and Indians. It was never sharing a meal in harmony as you might expect. The focus was their first encounter seeing one another on the beach. Somehow this seemed like a nice opportunity to comment on immigration.
