This is the start of something new. The plan is a regular slot, every Monday morning, with a cartoon taking a look at the main headlines. As some of you know well, for me it all began with Rowel Friers and Ian Knox; But these guys set a legacy hard to match. And so a lot of my work has been hit and miss over the past few years. Over the last 6-9 months I’ve worked attentively on my illustration skills and have got to a stage where I can draw with speed and accuracy. The next stage is to work on the story, the subtle mashup that pricks your sides. I hope you’ll agree that this, the inaugural has gone some way towards that goal. Feedback on this and those cartoons in the coming Mondays would be much appreciated.
