Wireless Technology Stunts Our Children's Development!

FACT: Wireless Technology Ruins Puzzles For Small Children

Should have uploaded this in the morning, but I was too busy taking a little pot of poo to the tropical diseases hospital.

I wish I was normal.

Sketchbook 2: Marble Arch

Marble Arch

A bit late, this upload (should have been yesterday's), but I've been feeling a bit rubbish the last few days.

Campbell's Nottinghamshire County Soup

Campbell's Condensed Nottinghamshire County Soup

An extra doodle today.

Because I can.

If you don't know what this is about, go here.

Great to Chew...

Great To Chew, Even Better To Cher!

I only thought to add Chewbacca yesterday, and then redrew the comic.  Before that it was just the gum and Cher (I had thought it was "Great to taste..." until I looked for it on YouTube).  For those of you who aren't familiar, here's the old Wrigley's bus journey advert.

Good Egg

Can you guess what Sunday's comic's going to be?

Today, I am mostly sending a children's story to a handful of literary agencies, in the hope of being published.

Sketchbook 2: Cheesy Puns

Sketchbook 2: Cheesy Puns are Grate

I drew this on the Tube the other day - it took exactly the journey from Tottenham Court Road to Archway.  I'm probably going to do it properly and submit it to doodlezine, which I stumbled across the other day and has a typography theme for the next issue.

Movies They Never Made, #81: Some Like It Not

Movies They Never Made, #81: Some Like It Not

Another Marilyn Monroe film. Maybe I should have planned for a Marilyn Monroe MTNM Week instead of one based around Kevin Costner...

...are you excited about Kevin Costner Movies They Never Made Week yet? No, me either.

Movies They Never Made, #80: Gentlemen Prefer Blands

Not sure about the last one though. Her eyes are a bit funny.

Just one week into my new Tuesday-Thursday-Sunday schedule, I appear to have forgotten to upload anything on Tuesday. Whoops.

From now on I can no longer use the "I'm ill" excuse either, as the Hospital of Tropical Diseases discharged me as an outpatient yesterday. Which is good news, after 13 weeks of fun and games. I might even be able to start working again at the beginning of October.

Sketchbook 2: Toast Rack

Sketchbook 2: Toast Rack

I bought a new sketchbook last week, and this is the first sketch from it - the old one wasn't quite full, but it's a bit battered and returning from Africa seemed to be a fitting excuse to start a new one. If only I could do the same with my intestines.

Incidentally, if anyone would like any evilflea tat, I've set up a shop at spreadshirt. I'm not making a big noise about it yet as I'm waiting for a t-shirt I've ordered to see the quality, but you can get badges, bags and mugs for the moment (although the mugs are a bit of a rip-off to be honest, I can't help that, sorry).

I'm going to be supply teaching this year (once I'm properly recovered from whatever nasty bug I seem to have brought back home), in the hope that it gives me a bit more free time and energy to learn a bit more about proper art techniques. This will require that I make a little bit of money on the side, for little luxuries like food to keep me alive.

It should also hopefully give me a bit more time to spend on the Hoja Project and Advocates for Action, like what I been talking about on my blog.

But maybe I'm being over ambitious. As usual.
