1B pencil on lined foolscap
Here's something from a long time ago. This is a pencil drawing I did for the cover of a fanzine called PROTEUS, some time in the mid-60s. I'd have traced this onto a wax stencil before cutting through the wax to produce something that could be run off on a duplicator.
Technology has moved on a bit since then.

This weekend the Cartoonists' Forum Cartoon Competition asked for a cartoon using the caption - "It's exactly what I have always wanted."
Merry Xmas to one and all.
[Later: This one won second place. So that's quite nice]

I had to complete this in a tearing hurry ("Oh no you didn't!"), but still fell victim to a computer monitor reluctant to wake up after a few days rest. As a consequence, I was too late to join the plethora of pantomime horse jokes in this weekend's Cartoonists' Forum Competition on the theme of - Pantomime.

Mota Tamer (mixed media)
This week, Illustration Friday asked for something on the theme of Shadow. Here's a cover I did for the fanzine MOTA in 1977, given the once over in Photoshop. Posted here in memory of my old mate, Terry Hughes.

Lush (Black marker and digital colour)
There are still lots of things preventing me from working on a regular basis, but today I digitally coloured this old (1994) drawing to submit it to Illustration Friday for this week's challenge - Lush.

In an attempt to get back into practice, here's my offering for this week's Illustration Friday challenge - Surveillance.
I've used an old fanzine cover which started life with a background by Sheryl Birkhead, had a figure added by me and now has digital colour added. I acknowledge there's a little clunky corner in the lower right of the background where I had to take out the issue number - must do better.

(Ballpoint pen and digital colour)
In my early days of cartooning, I had a particular fascination with various incarnations of Little Noddy. Looking through some old papers today, I came across this survivor of that period and gave it a bit of Photoshop colour.

It's a while since I posted anything on Illustration Friday, so when they announced their challenge this week - Eye Glasses - I thought I'd bring this one up from the vaults. It's a slightly altered version of an earlier cartoon, replacing the caption with a sign within the cartoon itself.
