Was thinking of doing something a bit different with this blog. Perhaps something more in line with my art practice, which is more about the process than the product. For instance I would post initial doodles rather than finished ‘toons, scribbles that would appear enigmatic and ‘leave room for the reader’. I would then perhaps appear more intellectual or adventurous. But my attraction to narrative won out and I began to improve on the ‘toon, shifted the pictures and words around until it read ‘properly’. Maybe one day…
…but I have included my drawings too. I really liked the different viewpoint but decided it was better as one panel.
This is one from my factory days. True story too. Sort of. I came up with the quip, but it was my pal, trying to make conversation, who repeated it to the lady in question and who suffered the interminable silence…still cracks us up.
Seeing we are No.1 in the Covid stakes here in Ireland I thought I would continue my Monday and Thursday cartoon archives from this week. This cartoon actually happened. To me. In the local bike shop. Doh.
