Maybe we’ll see something a little more progressive in 2018… maybe…
So one of the pages of the Naughty Unicorn book is actually the original Naughty Unicorn cartoon, but of course, I’m doing it in watercolour so I had to draw the original from scratch. I decided it’d be nice to share it here.
For comparison, check out the original here.
As with all of these, you can order a signed print if you like, just choose the buy print button under the cartoon 🙂
So I’ve been feeling a little down lately, hence the lack of cartoons in the past couple of weeks. Sorry about that.
This one came back as another twitter conversation recently. It seems to be a major belief of the unionist side that those who support independence are filled with hatred for the English. If not that, then they feel a need to tell people that indy supporters hate the English. It simply isn’t true, and I felt this needed to be shown in my cartoons, so here’s the unicorn’s good friend, the national animal of England. It’s been three centuries since they’ve felt the need to fight, and being independent of each other isn’t going to change that 🙂
In other news, I can announce that I’ve written a basic draft manuscript to a children’s book (for ages 0 to 145) called “What A Naughty Unicorn!” I don’t know how much of an appetite there will be out there for it, but it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while and it’s nice to now have the basic story written for it. So that’s nice 🙂
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!
