Today's comic (second strip down) is the 4th chess strip I've done. I never play the game so I don't really know where this fascination comes from. Perhaps, subconsciously, I envy those that have the ability to play the game well. I'll bet it helps in many aspects of life.
And look how different the drawings are! That third comic down is from 2008. Ollie has certainly filled out a bit since.

Ollie and Quentin are special guests in the Italian 'Comixx' magazine. A 48 page collection of Italian and International comics to be shown at the 'Comics and Games Show' in Lucca, Tuscany next week. I'm getting copies mailed to me so I can show you more when I receive them.
Grazie to Cius for translating my strips and promoting O&Q like this.

I could have continued this series for weeks but 5 days is about the acceptable limit for a series of comics I think. I learned a couple of these the hard way, sadly. I hope they may be of use to anyone looking for a shortcut in life although it's probably best you discover them for yourself. Anyone looking for a few more excellent tips have a listen to Baz Luhrmann's "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" He has some excellent advice and it's a cool song too. You won't forget what he says.
BTW, "Trust no-one" is garbage and I don't recommend you "Eat Fast". That's plain stupid.

My dad told us he'd eaten two jam donuts the day we visited him. (Jam filled donuts are the most popular kind here in the UK). We all said how much we fancied one so agreed that the next day we'd all have a donut at 1pm and prove it by photographing ourselves eating them. These are the results. Sadly one of my sister's was away and I've promised my mum not to publish her shot!
From Top to bottom: My sister Gemma, my brother Giles, Me, my other brother Quentin (the real one) in an elevator of all places!
