Flippin' 'eck, Tucker

Excellent! Summer is almost over!
If past years are anything to go by, this means that once the days get dark, cold and depressing I will start thinking of some cartoon ideas again- anything coming out in print at the moment was drawn ages ago- such as the two I currently have in Private Eye- here's one of them- to celebrate 'Back to School' time.

(That kid at the front of the class would be me- i have no idea how these new fangled gizmos work)

Dorian Gray

Just started a self portrait-
Man, i'm good looking-  not sure i should post the finished article- it'd just leave blokes feeling inadequate, and chicks might swoon

Cemetery Junction

There are a load of identikit whiny voiced nu-folk indie kids on telly at the mo- the Reading Festival is on. I used to go to this event quite a lot- it being not very far away from Lencartoons Towers- and I used to like music back then. And then one year I came to the realisation that I had no idea who anyone was, and that I was in the middle of a field next to an industrial estate in Reading, breathing in smoke from a thousand fires fuelled by waxy paper beer cups- so I stopped going (oh, hang on- Madness have just come on...i wonder which farewell tour this is now??).
Anyway- As I shuffle around the living room in my slippers and cardigan, I wait for the X Factor to begin on the other side...

version 1.0

Hello again- Thanks to those of you who said I should continue posting my nonsense- I do appreciate it. I don't know if other cartoonists go through periods of disliking what they're drawing...well, anyway- i do. I have decided to drop the cartoons for a bit, so that I can focus on teaching myself to draw and paint properly. I am now busy scribbling things that don't involve talking cats, psychotic pensioners or disaffected youths- and it's so much more enjoyable! I expect i'll get back to the toons again once I realise I need the extra money- but for now- here's an oldie, which i don't think i've posted previously...could be wrong though- it was in the Reader's Digest a year or so ago. (hope it comes out OK- I'm using a new editing thing in Blogger so that the pic appears the correct size)

Thinking of giving this blog up- it's had a good innings. Although it's probably just because i'm in the middle of a cartoon blank spell and have nothing to post

Dunno... we'll see.

Terminal velocity

Woo! It’s holiday season! Summer's here!

So I'm told...I'm lucky if get 5 minutes away from my I.T. support basement to get a packet of crisps.
Still- who needs time off when you know you are making a difference- I mean, how will people print their monthly reports on widget production without toner?!

And anyway- aeroplanes scare me.
