I have to confess, I’ve been avoiding the rape clause in my cartoons as I’ve not been able to find a way of addressing it in the family-friendly theme I’ve been trying to keep. But the news that Channel 4 now thinks Ruth Davidson is family-friendly enough to appear on Great British Bake Off has left me mortified. This is a person who supports the punishment of the poor and most vulnerable in our society, Ruth Davidson is not family-friendly, and so to address this, for a moment, I won’t be either.
Bit late with this one, it’s actually yesterday’s cartoon but I started it late and had to give the different layers time to dry. Anyway, woo! Fracking is banned! Stick that in your pipe and don’t blow it into the ground, cos you can’t! Yeah!
In other news, I’m doing #Inktober right now, so check out the Facebook, Twitter or Instagram profiles for a new ink doodle every day this month 🙂
Oh dear, that’s donkey is misbehaving! Democracy! Whatever next?!

I find it incredible how Trumpian the lies about that debate have been. I mean, when Stephen Kerr demanded that just one power be named that would be grabbed back by the UK government, a list of several were given to him, and yet we now see tweets saying “they couldn’t name a single one.” I feel like their lies are getting more absurd as we go through all of this!
As I type this, my bag is packed all except for this little laptop. I’m about to head out to DeeCon2017 in Dundee! This cartoon was actually meant as a greetings card that I’ll be selling on the stand today reading “Hoolet me forget your birthday?” But I loved the watercolour so much I had to come up with a new phrase to turn it into a regular cartoon too. I’ll be selling this one as a signed print on the stand too so if you like it, come and get it 🙂
The first outing of the unicorn in watercolour. Turned out alright I think, though I got a bit of a bleed of the yellow when I was doing the crown as I didn’t give the wash around it time enough to dry. Water colours require a lot more patience that digital, but I’m still prefering the results 🙂
Remember, I’m at Dee Con in Dundee this Saturday, do come along and say hello!
So the other day I had a yearning to visit Hobbycraft and buy some water colours… mainly due to a nice watercolour set being advertised in a Hobbycraft marketing email. It was a nifty little thing with a brush pen that you just fill up with water and use with the little watercolour pans. Seeing as I ink my drawings using a Pentel Brush Pen, I figured the transition wouldn’t be so difficult and I’ve been really admiring other artists who use watercolours lately such as Neil Slorance.
I’m really pleased with how this one came out and will be making it available as a print so check the prints page for those on Common Market 🙂
