Richfield Avenue

Thankfully it's no longer bright daylight at nighttime.
Stupid Summer is on its way out! After my usual period of inactivity at this time of year I have just sent 21 cartoons out on their way to be judged by the all powerful cartoon editors. I'll let you know how they get on.

The Reading Festival ( 'the world's oldest popular music festival still in existence'...thank you Wikipedia) is this weekend- that always heralded Autumn for me- standing in a field in an industrial estate north of the town centre and getting your lugholes assaulted by bands such as 'Nosebleed Agony'- then you realise that its dark and freezing by the time the headliners show up.
I've no idea who is top of the bill this year.
If I was there I'd be at one of the catering concessions- banging on about "this isn't music- you can't even hear the words!"
Here's a cartoon!

not a cartoon

Here's a pic of me (almost)  and the Stockholm hotel boat-


No cartoons for the moment- I'm in one of my 'fed up with cartooning' phases. Since coming back from the Scandinavia I've been carving trees instead.

Just back from another trip to Stockholm- stayed on a yacht/hotel built in the 1920's (was an 18th birthday present to Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton). It was all polished wood and brass, evocative of a bygone age. At breakfast I half expected Hercule Poirot to clamp a hand on my shoulder and accuse me of some kind of over elaborate murder- "J'accuse! You, with the buttered croissant and the laundry maid!"
The trip was fun- but I hate packing and double checking everything before I leave for the airport.

A cartoon of mine from Private Eye...this one has proved quite popular.
