The Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil Has Depression

The Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil Has Depression

I guess you too would be depressed if you were like Punxsutawney Phil and had seasonal effective disorder (SAD). Along with agoraphobia and clinical depression. Poor little guy, I don’t blame him for hiding.

The Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil and Chato Stewart: we both cast a big shadow. Thus, I thought I would share all my attempts of drawing old phil.

Okay, It’s only two over the last 8 years… Maybe I was drawing Punxsutawney Phil in The Mental Health Humor Cartoons on leap years.

REMEMBER my GOAL since 20o8 of the Mental Health Humor cartoons has been about sharing the cartoons and hopefully giving a little joy, giggle, smile, humor to my peers…
