Summer fun- time to hit the beach!!

"...you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then..."

Frankie says...

I thought it might be interesting (we'll be the judge of that, Len) to compare and contrast a new cartoon against the 3 year old toon in the previous post.
This one is in a recent Private Eye.

It probably looks a bit more slapdash- maybe less effort than the Enery 8th one?
Man alive- I wish!
Probably a day of ctrl z, edit undo, layer upon layer, cut delete copy paste, import, resize...aghh!!!!
Hmm... this finally looks OK.
I don't find it funny anymore.
And that, anonymous cyber reader, is how you (OK- maybe it's just me) draw a cartoon on a computer.

six weddings and a few funerals

Her Maj is on telly at the moment- something about being in Coronation Street 60 years ago?? Not really sure.
An excuse to shoehorn this cartoon into the blog.

It relies on you being able to recognise who it's meant to be- and to know a bit about his relationship issues.
This one had a bit of a sneak preview many many posts ago on the blog- I thought it was a dead duck, but 3 years after it was drawn it has finally found a home with Saga.
