My daughter and her friend are in New York, the home of King Features and my brilliant editor Brendan Burford. I received an email from Esme this morning saying they'd met up with Brendan and been jamming with him in Central Park. He blew them away with his banjo playing. Is there no end to the guy's talents?
This is the kind of editor I have.

My 19 year old daughter is in the US for 6 weeks. She's never been away that long before. If you see an eccentric, tall, funny, beautiful, red haired English girl carrying a Ukulele on her back that's my lovely Esme. She's with her best friend Flick (Felicity). They've started in Buffalo, and are then heading down to Manhattan and then south to Florida and across the southern states through Texas, Arizona and California, ending in Las Vegas in 6 weeks time.
If you see them please check my daughter's been eating some vegetables and if you can offer them somewhere to wash and lay their heads for the night I might sleep well that night.

I try to address the criticisms I sometimes receive about my comic, in my comic. (Every now and again I mention how Ollie and Quentin look nothing like a seagull and a lugworm. Perhaps I should say this is a strip about a duck and a severed thumb). Anyway, this isn't an answer just a gag about my characters not having very expressive faces. Subtlety isn't everyone's cup of tea I have learned.
