THUMBNAIL THURSDAY PUTS ON A SHOW!
One that not only made it to ink stage, but actually saw publication. In a newsletter I was editing, but they all count, right? Right? Anyway. Daleks. On Ice. Comedy fucking gold. I actually wanted to call a revue I put together in my comedy days "Daleks on...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY GOES TO ITS DARK PLACE
"I suspect the 'how' of this case is going to be at least as interesting as the 'why', constable." Elephants have been convicted of murder: witness the case of Mary , a circus elephant hanged-- yup, hanged-- in 1916 after being found guilty of murdering her...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY IS ON THE 'B' ARK
"Tell me again why he said there had to be a second ark just for dinosaurs?" An old gag retold. Let's say I did it for the practice and never speak of it again.

FETISH FRIDAY: STEVEN SAVILE
I'm running a new series of guest posts throughout 2015: Fetish Friday. Don't get all sweaty in the pants—I’m going back to an older definition of the word, and asking artists to show us something that helps them with the ritual of creation, some part of th...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY HITS THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL AND JUST KEEPS ON DIGGING.
"Yes, Mrs Tompkins, we do occasionally use the term 'gifted'. But in this case, I'm afraid  young Nigel is simply weird. Yeah, nothing to see here. Move along.

I AM TOO SOCIAL BY HALF, AND NOT IN THE RIGHT WAYS
July is always a strange month. For me, it's the first month of the year: my day job is based around an annual budget that is approved in June and runs from financial year to financial year, so my programs and projects run along similar lines, meaning my wo...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY GOES FOR THE SILENT TREATMENT
Simple and silent. Sometimes you don't have to go any further than whimsy.

TAKE THUMBNAIL THURSDAY'S WIFE... PLEASE.
Sigh. There's a growing up phase we all have to go through, right? Talk about give-an-old-joke-a-home-week...... "The bottom's really dropped out of the virgin business, hasn't it?"

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY ASKS PUNCH TO MIND THE BABY
"Before we start tonight's lesson, let's say hello to a new student." I can't remember what point I was going to satirise in this one. There's a bunch of ideas going on here, but maybe I've just grown beyond a point where any angle on domestic violence is f...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY SMASH!
Hulk need someone to talk to. Hulk need personal growth. Years after doodling it, this remains one of my favourites.  "Really, all that 'Smash' business embarrasses me now. I wasn't angry with the world. i was angry at myself. "
