I Think I Was At Sammy’s

…to see my good friend Dee’s musical collective, Tiny Pieces Of Eight, perform…IMG_1252 IMG_1253 IMG_1254 IMG_1256 IMG_1257 IMG_1259

…and perform they did…from free noise to country to funk to wall-of-sound-folk-a-delica…

…they sound awesome, go see ’em…

…then I went thru this door here…

…and found way too much beer…

…of course Mr H. was the only thing in focus after awhile…

…sometimes, no matter how messed up you get, you push the button and it works…

…and sometimes…

…not so much…

…thank you for another wonderfully boozy night, LoR…

…my head hurts.

I Hear You Knocking

…but you can’t come in….Scan 292 Scan 293 Scan 294 Scan 295

 

…last of the colour stuff in the “UK Toons” category…

…damn…now I’ll have to draw 4 pages a week….

…or write more about records or something.

Written Well Before The Grand Hotel Budapest

…which I highly recommend as a movie….Scan 296 Scan 297

 

…but not if your sitting next to Mrs. Axelgrinder.

 

…(guzunder?….goes-under!…as in goes under the bed….y’know).

 

 

…(this is one of those career-humps…I completed this cartoon at A3 in black & white in 2010…muffed the last frame but didn’t admit to it till after I’d inked it….now re-done at A4 in colour & much happier with the end result…I can move on & can almost smell the recently discarded adult nappies in the light fixtures and plant pots…..aaaah…).

No Post Yesterday But I Have An Excuse

…my good friend Dee was house sitting for friends in the hills overlooking the Otago Peninsula…

…I went up for dinner on Sunday evening…

…the weather took a turn for the f**king terrible…

….and we got snowed in Sunday Night…

…then frozen over on Monday night…IMG_1188

 

…finally freed ourselves on Tuesday afternoon…

 

IMG_1187

 

…and for people who think I was making it up so I could play in the snow….

…here’s some pictures…IMG_1162 IMG_1164 IMG_1168 IMG_1175 IMG_1176 IMG_1177 IMG_1179 IMG_1180 IMG_1181 IMG_1184 IMG_1186

 

…japanese station wagon without chains in slushy refrozen snow equals no traction + swearing to the power of 10….

…many thanks to Kirsten, Scott & Alice for the comfy bed , food, rural animal-feeding distractions and towage past the insurmountable drive-way hump…

…Thank you Seedy & Callum from Left or Right for emergency signage co-ordination….

…fuck you, anonymous detractor (I’m picking Simon C, but he’ll deny it!)…

…normal transmission starts now.

The Emperors New Hat

…Pete went to a charity tea-cosy auction the other day & came away with this stylee new “hat”…

IMG_1070

…it’s a beehive!….

…and has a bee on the top…

IMG_1073

 

…now you can identify Pete at a distance…

..which will give you ample time to come up with a witty complement for his new chapeau.

 

…(I already used the one where you point out that it’s interesting to see what’s under the Beehive – New Zealand’s parliament building).

In My Brain Since 1987

…OMG!….this appears to be the first instance of “Mrsaxelgrinderism” in my cartoons…Scan 283

 

…and the first time she’s been made into “small goods”…

…I’d forgotten this existed till I saw it in the “archive”…

..the butcher in this cartoon was my land lord at the time….

…we lived upstairs and never bought the mince.

Again Again I Did It Again

…final episode today…

…and I couldn’t resist the temptation to see what it looks like all together….

…which means you, lucky reader, get to read the last 2 posts allll over again…Scan 288 Scan 289 Scan 290

 

…I hope humouring me didn’t blow too much of your valuable time.

 

 

…and for the sake of repetitiveness…here’s the link to that first bus licence mentioned above….
