Shrewsbury, Daleks and exhausted cartoonists

Phew! Very tired still after the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival 2010. Will post more on it when I've caught up with work (and sleep) but in the meantime here's a cartoon I drew for the "HuMurals" in the town's Darwin Shopping Centre.

I returned home last night to find I'd got an email from a mum whose 10-year-old son was "very amused and excited" by the cartoon and drew his own version inspired by it (which she sent to me). That's kind of what the festival is all about and makes all the effort more than worthwhile.

  1. Luvverly job, Royston - it's great!

    Thanks for your kind comment on my blog; I'm still feeling a bit, erm, ethereal today.

    I have to say how very impressed I was with the kids who got involved with the festivally stuff - they were absolutely delightful!

  2. That's great! I've only heard about the new look daleks, haven't actually seen the episodes, but I can get the jist of it. Like your pic of the doc too..

  3. Thanks, Cathy. Yes, the kids were well into it, I noticed that when doing the "reverse" caricaturing.

    Tim, the New Dalek was drawn from memory, so I didn't get it quite right, but good enough for the joke to work! You can see them in all their chunky glory here:
