Why I chose a Lugworm...

Quentin was created as an homage to all the poor lugworms I used sea fishing in my youth. Poor Boring Uncle Keith, stuff like this keeps happening to him.

Baby trashes bar video...

Ok, this is hugely politically incorrect but it's one of the funniest videos I've seen on YouTube. I may be one of the last people on the planet to see it but I had to share it with the handful of you who maybe haven't yet.

What? Pardon?

My lovely old dad can really make me laugh. For months he has been almost completely deaf in one ear and driving everyone mad by shouting "What?" to everything, even if you're not talking to him. We were starting to think he should get a hearing aid. My mum dragged him to an little old Chinese lady next door who had a look to see if she could work out what was wrong. After a couple of minutes examination she asked if my dad listened to headphones at all. He said he often listened to the radio with headphones on when trying to get to sleep. She poked about and (hold on to your lunch) pulled out the rubber end of a headphone piece which had been lodged in there for months.

He has asked that no-one mentions this so please keep it to yourself.

Nudity on the Funny Pages Shock!

For those of you of a nervous disposition please look away now as there is nakedness, nudity and bare faced cheek in the following comic...

Following a couple of comments I have adjusted last Monday's comic so that you maze fans out there aren't disappointed. Not sure why I made the first one unworkable. Probably thought it was funnier that way. It wasn't.

Today I have been...

...running through London in the British 10k race. 25,000 of us pounding the streets of our beautiful capital city on a pretty warm Sunday morning. Fun, in a masochistic sort of way. 

That's me in the red shirt.

Sunday Strip in Full

There's my old VW Camper Van again...

Interview on 'Don't Pick The Flowers' Blog

The very charming David Hurley asked me a few questions about 'Ollie and Quentin' and has posted my answers on his great 'Don't Pick The Flowers' blog here. I've rambled on a bit and had a bit of a moan about the state of the comic business (and my small part in it) but I hope some of the other stuff might be of interest. I love the illustration he's done to accompany the interview (above). It's always flattering to see other people draw your characters.

If my interview is too boring to read I suggest you scroll down and read Aaron Johnson's interview below mine. He draws the fantastic 'What The Duck' comic which is one of my absolute favourites.

Henley Royal Regatta

Me, my cousin Tim, my other cousin Toby, my brother Giles and my other brother, the real Quentin all enjoying a nice, quiet, calm, alcohol-free day by the river at Henley Royal Regatta yesterday.
