Sketchbook 2: Postal Strike

Postal Strike

Sorry I've been a bit rubbish sticking to my schedule the last week or two. I've been concentrating on jobhunting.  Here's a bit of satire for you.

Back To The Matrix Comics

Back To The Matrix Printed Comics

The Back To The Matrix comics are hot off the press and on sale. Three quid each including postage, unless you live in far off lands, in which case I've added a little bit on.

I'm currently charging £3 for this and £1.50 of that will go to the Hoja Project. I'll give you another quid off if you buy the full set of greetings cards as well.

Movies They Never Made, #86: TARDUST

Movies They Never Made, #86: TARDUST

I had a good idea today. Well, my flatmate and I had a good idea today. And I'm going to develop it into a comic. It's going to be good. Maybe.

Movies They Never Made, #85: I Am Ham

Movies They Never Made, #85: I Am Ham


You're in for a treat this week. Thursday's upload will be a self-portrait, as I'm going Speed Hating tonight. Trust me, that last sentence makes total sense.

All I have to remember now is to try to not mention tomorrow's appointment at the Hospital of Tropical Diseases for my chronic diarrhoea.

The Business Cat

This afternoon I went to a writing group in Crouch End for the first time, and just got back.  It was good fun and interesting to hear other people's work - we all went for coffee afterwards.  Unsurprisingly I was by far the youngest person there, seeing as it was a Wednesday lunchtime.  Here's what I wrote in the first few minutes - we had a few options to pick from, and I chose to write something based on the words "chair, tie, cat".  As usual, it's a little bit strange.

The chair was not pleased
Bearing the scars of battles past.
Battles in which it could not fight.
Its varnish tarnished with scratches and bites.

It did not care if this was a different breed.
The Business Cat.

The Logical Spy

He calls Himself The Logical Spy.
Destroyer of Governments.
He alone knows the terrible truth
From the comfort of His armchair.

Lazily He changes channels
His grubby little fingers
Stained with gravy and fags
Stabbing at the faded numbers.

A young child holds a bottle
And young goats suck on the teat
While men in coloured costume
Watch curiously on.

The Logical Spy knows
What Hidden Agenda hides
In this strange circus.
He sees the true purpose.

The Logical Spy sees through
The oversized antenna’d heads.
Jealously He reaches for wispy hairs
That fail to conceal His balding scalp.

They had surely planned
To silence Him with poisons
But He had survived their treason
His flowing locks the only casualty.

His bloated belly boils with rage
At covert conspiracy
And He with great anger attacks
The greasy morsels ’pon it.

The day for speaking out would be another.

Movies They Never Made, #83: Alfred Hitchcock's The Boards

Movies They Never Made, #83: Alfred Hitchcock's The Boards

In my continuing quest to sell stuff, I've done up the Back To The Matrix comic as a pdf and sent it off to the printers. I'll put it up on here when they're ready, and sell it at comic fairs and get it in some comic shops.

I've now put t-shirts back in the Spreadshirt shop, as they've changed their printing techniques and you can buy the woofing dog design in many bright colours, rather than just boring white. Shazam, etc.

Annoyingly though, women's t-shirts are for some reason much more expensive than men's t-shirts. Sorry about that.

The rest of my time lately has been spent giving up on unresponsive teaching agencies, updating my CV, looking for other types of work, and going back (again) to the hospital in the Ongoing Saga Of Malaria And Giardia.  Which sucks but seems to gradually be coming to an end.

Movies They Never Made, #82: Cost In Space

Movies They Never Made, #82: Cost In Space

For the first time ever, I've bottled it before uploading a comic. It was just a little bit *too* offensive. Here's a new Movie They Never Made instead...

This morning I am mostly giving up on unresponsive supply teaching agencies and looking for other jobs instead.
