Sign

I made this sign today. Well, a machine did. But I watched. I will put it in my office in case I forget what I do. Note for readers from the design world: I was not responsible for kerning. My only aim for this week was to make a spice rack. I told the man,…

Craft / sport week

Craft / sport week

I’m spending a few days doing things other than drawing all day or adding bold tags to web pages. One of the planned activities is pottery, and pictured above (and below) are a small number of the possible items. Any requests? If all else fails I will make a small statuette of a golfer. In…

Adaptors

Adaptors

These are the travel adaptors I won in the Hymns Ancient and Modern staff Christmas raffle. As you can see there is one adaptor, and then another adaptor with another adaptor. Thereby making a total of three adaptors. My life was very limited before I had these adaptors. I very rarely visited Europe, India or…

New Year's Day 2013

New Year's Day 2013

I am determined to write on the blog today just in case my New Year’s resolution, the details of which are yet to be finalised, turns out to be that I plan to blog every day of the year. I haven’t decided yet, but if I do opt to do so it would be a…

New Year’s Day 2013

I am determined to write on the blog today just in case my New Year’s resolution, the details of which are yet to be finalised, turns out to be that I plan to blog every day of the year. I haven’t decided yet, but if I do opt to do so it would be a…

Back to work

Back to work

I’m back from being away on holiday. I can never really tell you about our holidays beforehand for security reasons, but it is now safe to say that we went to Holt in Norfolk, where we stayed in a cottage one minute and fourteen seconds from the Kings Head. Activities included bicycling, railways and pretending…

April 2011 (explanations for)

April 2011 (explanations for)

Once again April was a particularly poor blogging month for me. If you look back over my archives you will see that I am and have always been an inept blogger during each of the Aprils that seem to come around once a year. It is something to do with the pollen or the gravitational…

Untitled blog post IV

Untitled blog post IV

This blog post does not merit being called anything. I was out and about in the neighbourhood, scouring the empty shopping trolleys for completed cartoons that I could post on my blog or send to ecclesiastical newspapers. Once again I found nothing, so this will have to do: This note was discarded, one assumes, by…

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…

Twitter cartoon

Twitter cartoon

I know, it looks a bit similar to things I have already done. Also clumsy with the ‘that that’. But I had to post something to remind myself that completing a cartoon is still an achievable aim. Feel free to repost. You could put some sort of link back if you wanted.

Why I had to get my own office

Why I had to get my own office

Come on now, you can’t complain. I haven’t posted any cat photos since 2007 (don’t check). Evie sits on the pile of paper in my home office. Yes, that is the original artwork for the cover of ‘The Exciting World of Churchgoing‘. She sits on the documents in the hope that a game of ‘cord’…

The dullest blog in the Economist

The dullest blog in the Economist

My dullest blog in the world appears in the latest issue of The Economist. From Analysing the web: Blog mining: “I NOTICED that the doormat was at a slightly crooked angle. I reached down and moved the mat back into its correct place.” Thus began a recent entry on The dullest blog in the world….

Highlights from my filing system

Highlights from my filing system

Regular readers will know that at the weekends the budget for this blog does not allow for the posting of cartoons or interesting anecdotes. Instead I focus largely on highlights from my filing system. Today, a section from my bank file entitled ‘letters informing me of my idiocy’. This is where I file letters that…

Being on the digg website

Some people told me that one of my diagrams was on the front page of the digg website over the weekend. Here is a link to the page about it: Link to the page about it. The comments are not very kind as you can see. I was wondering where the unkind people gather –…

Special offers

1. I was offered the opportunity to take part in 40 days of prayer for the bargain price of $9.98. For this much money I would get daily e-mail updates which I could forward on to my friends for free. They would not need to pay $9.98. I’m no businessman, but it seems to me…

Dullest blog

Jon Birch has said kind things about the dullest blog in the world, a not-very-interesting project of mine from the 2003 era. Jon keeps a good blog over at the asbojesus with his cartoons and in-depth discussions and suchlike. He was talking about it all at Greenbelt but I unfortunately missed the talk owing to…
