The Rhinomato

Off topic here but I had to show you this weird tomato we grew. We call it The Rhinomato or Hippomato for obvious reasons.

Crossover Comic

My attempt at a crossover comic. Apologies if, like me, you're not a fan of these rather embarrassing strips.

Chable and Dork

I think that's probably it for this joke. Spife? Knork?

Party Crasher

Hee Hee, every now and again my Google ad appears on other comic sites. I've seen it beside the excellent Pooch Cafe and Pearls Before Swine Comics and today it made an appearance on the Dilbert site. Looking at it now has made me decide to include an Ollie and Quentin comic strip which I could change weekly. Is that a bit cheeky?

Talk Like A Pirate Day

Happy 'Talk Like A Pirate Day' Everyone!
I don't really like adding my signature to my comics, it seems like unnecessary clutter but I guess it's got to be there. Anyway in today's strip I had a bit of fun with it.

Roddy Reid the Veterinarian

This is Roddy Reid the Veterinarian. He looks nothing like the real Roddy Reid who also happens to be a Veterinarian and is, in fact, one of my very good running mates. The above photo shows me running the London 10k with Roddy loitering right on my shoulder, almost coming out of my neck and about to overtake me, the swine.

Samples Update

I've added 6 bonus comic strips to the samples page on my Ollie and Quentin website. Click here and see if you can find them.

Space Hopper

Here in the UK Space Hoppers are funny looking orange things that look like this pencil rough. Trouble is they don't have these in the US so I had to change it to the rather dull hopper in the color final. Wish I'd just scrapped the joke.

I'm a big user of Google Images for reference but in today's case I used my own lawnmower. It's a hand push version so I had to invent an engine. You can see I'm not an engineer or mechanic as my motor looks decidedly odd. This strip was originally nixed by my editor because it seemed a bit too cruel and grim for my comic. I've toned down the grinding noises of the cutter and added a "Grrr" from Ollie to show he's angry but not dead.

This Saturday, The Guardian newspaper starts giving away a free classic comic every day for a week – including the Beano, the Dandy and Jackie.
I was always a 'Sparky' kid myself.

"Where do you get your ideas?" #664

This week's 'Key' Series comes courtesy of my 17 year old daughter who NEVER remembers her key. I work three floors up in the attic of our house so have to struggle down a narrow spiral staircase and two flights of stairs to open the door for her.
