This is probably my third or fourth attempt drawing a Scottish wildcat. Still not particularly pleased with it, but at least I’ve managed to keep that bad tempered expression that is such a part of our wildcats 🙂
I’ve heard it suggested a few times now that everyone should just start keeping a list of the little things they see changing around them, keeping note of all the freedoms and rights we enjoy right now that drip by drip get taken away, because with each tiny drip we just don’t see it as all that much, but in a wee while, when you put it all together, you’re going to wish you said something sooner 🙁
This past week we’ve seen the first minister of our country be told that she will no longer be allowed to meet face to face with the prime minister of the “United” Kingdom. It says it all about the whole wanting Scotland to lead as part of an equal partnership.
Anyone else in that fatigue point right now where it’s just really, really difficult to come up with positive thinking stuff to do with politics? I had no cartoon last week, the first time that’s happened since I’ve begun, and today’s one is late, simply because I’m struggling to stay positive right now, and I really want to keep these cartoons positive if I can.
Anyway, I like this idea, I’m thinking of doing a few strips with these two guys, that could be a little fun.
Nice to see the press always telling us what’s best for it and its profits.
Also, yesterday marked the end of my very first Comic Con in Edinburgh! It was utterly brilliant experience and I hope to bring Evil Dr. Eye (or Yes?) to more cons real soon! Thank you to everyone who came over and especially to those who bought prints and other stuff 🙂
I can’t possibly claim credit for this joke. Back in 2014, in the run up to the ill-fated referendum, a twitter feed appeared with the name @LochYesMonster, which tweeted amusing threats such as “If you vote No, I’ll piddle in the loch!” and later would come to start tweeting more serious messages about basic equalities and treating our vulnerable with dignity, basically everything and independent Scotland hopes for. Last I checked, @LochYesMonster fell silent last year, which was particularly disapointing as I’d been meaning to make this little tribute for a long time. The Loch Yes monster will be joining the list of friends in the Naughty Unicorn and friends series, so expect to see Yessy a bit more in future 🙂
