Back in August of 2009, I interviewed Jon for Jewzine, HEEB, and naturally, the topic of his copious Christmas cards came to light. Jon spoke of parental guilt and possibly having slipped in the odd dreidel somewhere. At the time, he was entertaining the idea of doing a “little latke person” to balance things out. Well here it is, fatty!

“Clean air is lungtastic!” Truer words were never spoken. Today, the American Cancer Society launched the “More Birthdays” campaign. Jon has contributed a poster, print and wrapping paper featuring this new “Lungtastic” design. Each item is priced affordably, and you can’t argue that your dollar is going to a better cause. What do “more birthdays” mean to Jon? “The chance to eat way more cake than your fair share.” Check out products by Jon here.
About the movement for more birthdays:
For nearly 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. And we can’t do it without your help. The movement for more birthdays is about everyday people, just like you, coming together to make a difference. This year more than 11 million cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday, thanks in part to the progress we’ve already made. But we can’t stop there. With every person who joins the movement, we can get closer to the day when cancer never steals another year from someone’s life. It all starts by helping people stay well and get well, and by finding cures and fighting back.
Jon has joined the Renmen Project! Per their blog:
He’s very kindly filled up a book of blank postcards with a stack of hand-drawn one-off doodles, which we will be selling in our shop in the not-too-distant future.
Renmen’ is the Haitian word for Love, the bird in the logo is the Hispaniolan Trogon, the national bird of Haiti. ‘The Renmen Project‘ has been brought together by the team at Thunder Chunky and Ben The Illustrator in order to raise funds for UNICEF’s Haiti Appeal. Throughout 2010, they will be working with a selection of top artists and designers from around the world to create artwork to sell online. Every penny made from art sales will be going to UNICEF’s Haiti Earthquake Children’s Appeal.
Just six months after we told you about Jon’s triumphant return to Letter Pressed, his #26 art card is now available for pre-order.

Here’s the Amazon link.
Even with the widespread appeal put out in HEEB magazine for a benefactor to commission Jon to do some Chanukah swag, here comes another Christmas item to join the existing X-mas cards, wrapping paper, CD and show in the artkive. But I can’t be Scrooge when it’s for charity. Here’s a bit about the All I Want For Christmas project from their website:
All I Want For Christmas Cards 2009 is a new festive project in support of the Bristol based charity ‘Young Bristol’. 20 local artist’s and illustrator’s specific works for the project are being used to create a limited edition run of Christmas cards that will be sold as packs containing each of the 20 cards.
A competition, with the brief to create a piece of work based on the phrase ‘All I want for Christmas’ took place and after receiving an overwhelming response, the final 20 artworks were chosen, each on their individual merits and included in the final 20 cards.
Initially created with the idea of promoting the charity Young Bristol, All I Want For Christmas Cards has also brought together artists and illustrators local to Bristol for this exciting illustrative project.
At a time of year when many people want, the All I Want for Christmas Cards project 2009 offers an opportunity to support those who need.
The Christmas card packs are a limited edition of 500, each containing 20 cards individually designed by 20 of Bristol’s finest illustrators, litho printed on 100% recycled card, 20 envelopes and an A2 poster.
By purchasing a pack of Christmas cards you will be supporting a worthy cause, as profits from the packs will be donated to the Bristol based charity, Young Bristol. Price per pack: £20 + £3.99 p&p. Available here.
The good folks at Letter Pressed have added another design by Jon for an art card in their excellent Artist Series. Back in 2006, Jon was the 6th card in the series. Three years and 20 cards later, he’s now got the #26 design. Info has yet to be released on the card, but based on prior offerings from Letter Pressed, it will be stellar. Cards are usually sold in packs of 5 containing 1 signed card and matching envelopes. Keep tabs on availability here.
Card-board.co.uk launched around the holidays in 2008 selling Christmas cards (UK only) to help raise money for 3rd Year Graphic Design students at Salford University (for their end of year/graduation show). All the money went into helping out with the show. Jon joined Jeremyville, some other name artists and the students themselves as card designers for this successful fundraiser.
If you prefer DIY doodles to pre-colored doodle cards, Jon also designed a series of 8 birthday-themed Coloring In Cards. The 120×170mm cards are printed on 300gsm 50/50 re-cycled/sustainable board. They are packaged in red envelopes and include a 4-pack of crayons for £2.20 per card. Cards can be ordered directly from NineteenSeventyThree in the UK or through Vigocards in the US. Coordinate with the Jon Burgerman Color-in Wallpaper!
MOO is a London-based printing company and they’re adorable and they make great stuff like stickers and cards. Jon has a slew of readymade products for the purchasing here, and he’s is in good company with Brian Taylor, DGPH and Peskimo (among others).
