Environmental cartoon: No glow area


Seems like a while since we've had any colour on this blog, so here's one of the two cartoons by me that you can see in the June issue of Reader's Digest.

I'm not against low-energy lightbulbs in any Jeremy Clarkson kind of way, we have them throughout our house, it's just that, well, they're a bit crap aren't they? When I sit reading a book I try to console myself with the fact that I'm helping to save the planet as I tilt the page towards the light.

  1. Hehehehe! Great gag!

    But don't you find that these low-energy lightbulbs attract fewer moths? Or is it just that there aren't so many moths around these days anyway?

  2. Maybe the moths are annoyed about the low-energy bulbs too and have gone back to naked flames!

  3. Another good 'un.

    Do low-energy bulbs attract low-energy moths? Perhaps they just lazily do one circuit of the light and then go for a nap.

    Hmm, is it unethical to pinch an idea for a gag cartoon that was posted on your own blog? It probably is. You'd better get drawing, Tim!

  5. Hah! After writing it I thought 'that's not a bad idea for a gag!' I'll probably use it in my strip instead...
