This cartoon about The Lego Movie can be seen in the current Private Eye. And here are a couple of older Lego cartoons.
"I must say I'm not convinced by Lego Jenga."
I heard the Lego Jenga line on QI on BBC Two the other day, but I can assure you I didn't steal it from there. I stole it from my son. And talking of stealing, the one below never sold, which is a shame as I thought it was a nice visual gag.
Here are a couple more Christmas cartoons, both drawn to accompany articles in local papers. The subjects were the privatisation of Royal Mail, tying it in with the controversy over rising fuel bills, above, and Christmas gridlock, below.
The cartooning life is not all about the, er, glamour of Private Eye, The Spectator and the like. Here's a festive cartoon from what is referred to on Have I Got News for You (and has featured on that show) as "this week's guest publication" ... Skip Hire Magazine.
I've been drawing a strip for the monthly mag since February. People think it must be difficult to draw for specialist publications but provided the mag has a sense of humour (which Skip Hire with it's regular "skip chick" and "skip hunk" features most definitely has!) I don't find that to be the case.
This has turned out to be a fun job. It's basically a straightforward workplace strip with regular characters. Like Dilbert with skips!
This Christmas drawing is the latest Beat the Cartoonist entry in Reader's Digest. Here are the caption options:
"We broke up." "I'm sorry, but your true love will have to return them himself." "I'm afraid I can't do anything unless you have a receipt." "Sorry, could you run through the list again?" As usual, one of them is mine and the rest are by readers and the idea is that you vote for the one you think is the funniest. Click here to vote (ends December 20).
This cartoon below was in Beat the Cartoonist a couple of months ago.
As revealed in the latest mag, the vote was won by one of the reader's captions*. So I've got my fingers crossed for the Christmas one.
