Still hanging around: Volcanic ash cartoon

OK, enough politics* already, there's another story in the news that doesn't seem to be going away.

I thought this cartoon on the volcanic ash cloud, which I drew for a local paper a few weeks ago, would have a limited shelf life, but the infamous plume appears to still be with us. So I thought I'd give it another airing here.

And it seems there is still life in the "smokers' huddle" cartoon too, one of the great contemporary clichés of UK cartooning!

(*I spent Election Night with a group of other cartoonists at the Groucho Club in London. You can read a short report on this at the Bloghorn)


  1. Thanks, Surreal. "Hehehe" is always a good reaction ;-)

  2. Love it, Royston. Poor little hairyplane!

  3. Thanks, Cathy. Not sure about "hairyplane" though!

  4. And as of today, it's back again! You'll be pushing your zimmer frame round your studio and still be able to re-use these gags!!

  5. Indeed. The news just said that the last time this volcano erupted it lasted 15 months. Maybe I should think of some more ash cloud cartoons!
