The idea for this picture came from the Gag Station comic strip in this month's issue of Nickelodeon Magazine. The gag in question depicts a boy and a girl standing in a doorway. The boy had lipstick stains on his face and was looking upward while his girlfriend was giggling. The caption read, "Hey, I thought you said we were under mistletoe...?" I guess I thought it was cute, because I decided to draw it myself! And why not use it on my fan-made couple, Greg Carbunkle & Gin Kohana
? Besides, I've already drawn plenty of Christmas romance pictures that actually had mistletoe. If my last picture of them is to be taken into account, they are both very shy and yet willing to express their feelings for each other. So maybe Gin, who I got to draw in another angle
here, would most likely not want to wait until her boyfriend got under a mistletoe sprig before kissing him. And yeah, even though I didn't think pink lipstick would show up well on Gin's tan skin, it didn't stop her from laying red lipmarks on the face of Jenny & Brad's son, 'cause I know that lipstick prints are so cute they can make a cute picture even cuter.
