It’s a #dataviz Christmas cartoon post

This kind of cartoon post happens when you’re writing about data visualization in front of a Christmas tree.

    I particularly loved the Christmas sweater.

      Thanks Erica 🙂

    Love this! Especially like the idea of a kid trying to get Santa’s attention with an infographic.

      That’s my favorite too, but feels like we may be in the minority there 🙂

    I love the sweater one as well – probably one of my all time favorites that you have done. Because I am fairly certain that would actually happen.

      Very true, although some type of 3D chart may sneak in. But it would ruin the cartoon.

    Love it.

    But who is going to tell Dancer that he’s been replaced by a Dashboard? I’m not sure he ever got over the addition of Rudolf.

      No worries Ann, the reindeer are safe. Santa is pretty eco-conscious and reindeer fly on Christmas magic, which is a renewable resource.

    Hmmmm……I wonder how long it would take to knit an ugly Christmas pie-chart sweater?

      I ended up going the redbubble route, you can’t get a sweater but a sweatshirt is on the menu 🙂
