After A Brief Break

…at the secret brief break location…IMG_1101IMG_1100IMG_1071IMG_1094IMG_1097IMG_1077IMG_1086IMG_1083IMG_1084IMG_1091IMG_1103IMG_1102…I now find myself with 30 plus weeks of cartoons to draw….IMG_1099

…finally got the brain space to organise and plot a great big chunk from the chaos of my notebook &  journal from 8 years ago…either written whilst “working” in a sheet metal factory or at my cousin Phil & family’s kitchen table….been meaning to do something about it since I got back….not so many ideas going into the sketch  book of late, so I’m glad I “prepared” this earlier….

…onwards!

The Daily Commute

…winter?….really???…IMG_4655   …already??  

…(and WHY did the battery that operates the mother board in my heater pick this morning to die???…you cannot safely draw cartoons with a drip on the end of your nose….).

Not A Busy Day

…but up bright and early…

…everyone too concerned about going to ground to be hangin’ in the record shop today…

….snow….pffft.

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…

…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.
