This blog is moving

Today I launched a new website. It is a combination of two things: 1) A portfolio site to act as the one link that I give people who are interested in my work. 2) My main blog. The new site is here: https://davewalker.com and the new blog is here: https://davewalker.com/blog I have explained why I…

Real life calls

Real life calls

Warning: Don’t look directly at this picture as it depicts the sun. The picture was taken from a moving vehicle as we travelled from Jinja to Kampala on Sunday. I have entitled this short message ‘real life calls’. For some the internet is real life, but it isn’t for me. At the moment I need…

The mobile cartoonist

The mobile cartoonist

Warning: technical post. Some may not find it of interest. Yes, this is a picture of someone taking a picture of a cartoon. Don’t ask how many takes this took. One of my aims in life (I haven’t set my sights that high) is to be able to post cartoons on this blog from anywhere….

Wave

Wave

Image: notebook drawing. I have, for some reason, called it ‘Wave’. So, one month of daily blogging has taken place. I rarely achieve the targets I set, so am going to allow myself a brief moment of being pleased. There have been days when I’ve sat for quite a while trying to think of something,…

I have got a book

I have got a book

…about blogging. I started this daily blogging lark on a whim, and after two weeks I am still going, so I might as well carry on. I enjoy doing it, daily creativity is good for me, and there are some faithful readers who have said kind things leading me to think that they at least…

Daily blogging

Daily blogging

Above: ‘They didn’t have your name’. My sister gave me this duck and it makes me smile. It lives in my office next to a stone, five rulers and a tin labelled ‘proper money’. It is the sort of thing I will be posting on this website from this point on as part of my…

Information about the future direction of this blog

Information about the future direction of this blog

Image: choir hats. For illustration purposes only. I’m sorry not to have updated this blog for over ten days. I’ve been suffering from low morale and general loss of diagrammatical confidence and so didn’t have anything good enough to blog. I still don’t have anything good enough to blog, but have decided to remedy the…

Saturday letters page

Being as it’s Saturday and noone is reading I thought I’d publish some of the letters I get that, for one reason or another, don’t make it into the comments pages of this blog. Althea: Thankyou lots, I am obliged to announce that your blog is excellent! Thank you Althea. I’m sure your blog is…

We need to sort out our navigational problems

We need to sort out our navigational problems

In order to prepare ourselves for the expected onslaught of Christian Blog Award judges there are a few things that need to be sorted out. The first is the forward and back buttons on this website, which are currently in a state of disarray. Take as an example this page and scroll down to the…

Motivational talk to all readers

Cartoon commissions

Cartoon commissions

[This post is mainly written so that when people ask me things I have something to point them to.] Why I’m not taking on freelance cartoon commissions 1) Nearly all of my time is taken up with ongoing work. I’m now doing two days a week in London in an ‘acting web editor’ role for…
