If J.S. Jr. is your favorite composer, please feel free to print this off and stick it on the wall next to your gramophone player. Then put on one of his records and dance about wildly.

Bunhead link

This comic strip I did for a friends rockabilly band website from 98-01 so I only ever did them when he was ready to update their site content. The main character was based on one of their fans I’d seen at a gig. The band, ‘Kill Van Helsing’ are sadly no longer with us but their album ‘Alien Hotrod’ is still available online in various formats. The cover art was by the singer Gavin I believe.

You can check out the Bunhead strips by following the B link on the right…

Lost and found

These sketches were looking out of a cafe window. People move faster than you think so you really have to stare at them to memorize their expressions and features before they’re gone.

I thought I’d dropped this sketchbook somewhere or left it on a bench last year but found it today in the side pocket of my cycle pannier, a pocket I hardly ever use!
