How to be taken seriously as a cartoonist

How to be taken seriously as a cartoonist

I went to the Design Museum yesterday. It was worthwhile, though not spectacular. At the moment I’m looking for inspiration regarding design for CartoonChurch.com, both the website and my business as a whole. And yes, I am fully aware that with only a few weeks to launch I should have got that sorted out ages…

I'm about to tell people about this site

It’s all slightly scary. I feel that there’s not much to see yet, that the cushions aren’t straight and there’s still bits on the carpet which the vacuum cleaner didn’t quite pick up. But anyway, welcome to all visitors who have arrived because of one of my e-mails, a link from The Wibsite or a…

A short break in transmission

There’s been so much to do that I’m delaying the launch of the ‘post a day’ blogging service for another week. I’ve had deadlines to meet and am now away for a few days. Comments will be on ‘moderate’ for a short while.

The best noise in the world

The best noise in the world

It is probably only me who loves the sound a beer bottle makes when it is held underwater in a bowl of washing up water and the air slowly escapes. But I thought I’d mention it anyway. If I’m to be blatantly honest this is a test post to explore the ins and outs of…

I have the wrong envelopes

I have the wrong envelopes

One of the great things about starting a business is ordering stationery and office supplies from a business catalogue company. I had looked forward to doing this for some time. Well, the day finally arrived yesterday, so I have an absurd number of pens and enough A4 paper to draw a cartoon a day for…
