The Museum of Food Anomalies

I found this link hidden deep inside my ‘to link to’ file. I’ve no idea how it came to be there. But anyway, a useful filler for another day spent away from the computer… The Museum of Food Anomalies. (Warning: Some viewers may find pictures of food unappetizing)

No 6

My dullest blog in the world is still the 6th most linked to blog in the UK, according to this list. I am going to update it soon. No, really.

New worksheets: the church of the future

New worksheets: the church of the future

I have now uploaded a new cartoon worksheet to the main site. It, or should I say they, are entitled ‘The church of the future‘ – a rather grand name for two sheets of little pictures which you could give to a youth group or anyone else who enjoys cutting things up and then sticking…

New cartoons on the main site

New cartoons on the main site

I’ve uploaded five new cartoons to the main CartoonChurch.com site. I realise that they may not be new to everyone reading, but I’m still in the process of going though my old(er) work and putting it online. I’m getting there, but I’m not the world speed-scanning record holder by any stretch. I do also have…

Mene Mene – the Bible in public

This looks like quite interesting: Mene Mene is an art project currently on display in Leeds. “A series of texts are abstracted from their original Biblical context and filtered throughout the city in a variety of formats. From high-profile banners and adverts on bus shelters to more intimate sayings on bench plaques and shop windows,…

Free wine for bloggers

Cartoonist Hugh Macleod is giving out free wine to bloggers. I think I need to give out some freebees, though by now you’ve all clicked that link and stopped reading here anyway. I have plenty of seethrough plastic file pockets – perhaps I’ll give them away.

Rube Goldberg

I’ve learnt, via the Drawn blog that this weekend is the American National Cartoonists Society awards, the Reuben Awards. They are named after Rube Goldberg, whose inventions ‘have become synonymous with any maximum effort to achieve minimal results’. They are quite fun to look at, and include a mechanism to help you ‘Keep from Forgetting…

Click click click. If only journalists would do their research.

Stephen Pollard quotes Oxfam to support his argument against the Make Poverty History campaign. I wonder if he realises who is behind it? He doesn’t seem to realise that increasing poor countries share of world trade is exactly what the campaign is about. He goes on to say: If those behind Make Poverty History were…

Cartoons in the church press

I’ve been sorting through all the bits and pieces I picked up at the Christian Resources Exhibition the week before last. One of the good things about the exhibition is that you can pick up free copies of all the papers you wouldn’t normally get around to reading. This is an analysis of the papers…

Cheating slightly

By the wonders of technology (in particular the WordPress blogging system) I can post a post to appear in the past or in the future. This means if I don’t get around to blogging on one particular day I can post in the past and you probably won’t be any the wiser. Unless I admit…

Robert Crumb at the Whitechapel Art Gallery

I’m making an effort to go and see a few Exhibitions around the place to inspire me a bit. The second one yesterday was the Robert Crumb exhibition at the Whitechapel gallery, which also only has a day or two to run. Robert Crumb, for those who don’t know was a hero of the alternative…

John Virtue at the National Gallery

I set off for London today with the intention of seeing the Caravaggio exhibition at the National Gallery. Unfortunately by the time I got there the queue was huge and I wasn’t feeling too well so I decided not to queue but to go and look at a less fashionable exhibition instead. Just as well…

Being terribly British about things

I’m very aware that the CartoonChurch.com site currently has rather a UK focus, which is slightly out of order bearing in mind the interest in the site from people around the world over the last few weeks. Particular issues which have arisen so far have been paper sizes, availability of the greetings cards and licence…
