So ever since signing up to Instagram recently, I’ve been trying to post a new piece of art or cartoon every day (or as close as possible), to exercise my topical muscles a bit.
In the rush of it all I’ve not had the chance to update this site, so here are my most recent cartoons in one lump sum.
To get more regular cartoon updates,
follow me on instagram.
Cartoons below – hope you enjoy them.
Speedy Boarding – 16th April 2017 – You have to ask yourself if the guy at the end of the Priority Queue really feels like he’s got his money’s worth
Turkeys Voting for Christmas – April 17th 2017 – Both specific to the Turkish referendum granting dictatorial powers to Erdogan, and a more general point on the recent (or is it?) trend for people to consistently vote against their own interests
“Who else wants a shot??” – April 18th – Theresa May calls a snap election before the reality or ramifications of Brexit become manifest
Empty Chair – April 20th 2017 – In the wake of Theresa May refusing to take part in any debates, BBC and ITV both threatened to replace her with an empty chair.
A new cartoon in “New Yorker” fashion. An attempt at reducing how much I telegraph the message of my cartoons.
Another addition to my unintentional
Brexit series, with more than a little inspiration from Marcel Gotlib.
On a day where the
CIA concluded that Russia contributed towards Trump being elected.
Bit late to the party with this one but it still seems as topical and relevant as ever.
I saw this in my head in the style of a
The Week cover, but went with my own drawing style since I’m not sure I could have done justice to theirs.
Just a wee christmas cartoon I drew. Halfway through I realised I was basically drawing an unofficial
Liz Climo strip and did some quick Googling to make sure I wasn’t just cribbing an existing idea.
Off the back of David Cameron
dodging a question about tax credits 6 times in one sitting, I drew a quick sketch for an idea I had.
It didn’t quite turn out how I wanted it to – I had this idea of Corbyn and Cameron hosting a “This Morning”, easy-viewing morning style show. As Corbyn reads a tricky question from the audience, Cameron cuts him off and outros to the rest of the scheduled programming.
Not a hugely strong idea which is why it remained a sketch and not a higher-effort drawing.
Another quickie on the back of the
WHO report that bacon and sausages rank alongside cigarettes as a major cause of cancer.
Just a quickie about today’s news… no pun intended #piggate
