I said I was working on something didn't I?
My first attempt using a new colouring method (no computers here, except for the scan) based on the methods of Peter Cocker - YouTube web cartoonist. You can find him at http://www.youtube.com/user/WEBCARTOONIST

Notes to self - 1. Noodlers ink can smudge when the pencil is rubbed erased (that's why some areas seem very dirty) - either let it dry fully or 2. switch to another pen!

sorry for the delays folks...

... but I'm currently trying some new colouring / inking ideas. Hopefully, you'll see the results here very soon. I haven't forgotten about The Greebles, but it may be put on a back burner for a while while I concentrate on another idea that shows more promise - more about this later.

Keeeepppp Dancing!

Bill Stott

My lovely wife bought me a great book recently - "The Crazy World Of Housework". This collection of fabulous cartoons is by the great Bill Stott, a lovely man who was kind enough to give me a few tips. Bill draws sharp, smart cartoons that exude energy - something my work lacks.

After the advice, I did a quick cartoon - hopefully, it's more energetic than some of my previous work - Thanks Bill!
Drawn using a fountain pen (can't use dip pens during lunch - too messy!)
