If a picture paints a thousand words...

...should it be in colour or black and white?
This cartoon is in the current (as of writing) issue of Prospect magazine- and due to the nature of the setting was originally in monochrome.

The magazine asked if I could colour it in- i had my doubts due to the limited options for colour in a polar scene (and a Newcastle shirt), but my artistic scruples were won over by the higher rates they pay for a splash of colour. In the end I think it came out OK, athough I think the lass has overdone the fake tan

This cartoon also throws up the perennial struggle of the caption- i couldn't decide if my original "Geordies!" would be better.

Of course, this won't make any sense to anyone outside the UK...
