The Comic strip...What's it about?

Russy and Nutty are trapped together as pets, Rus hates Nutty as he represents everything he detests and is gradually being driven insane by the antics and poor hygiene levels of his fellow cell mate. Nutty on the other hand is perfectly happy within his environment due to the fact that he is thick as shit.

I love drawing these characters and it is my ambition to get them placed in a major publication....I'd have to tone them down a bit though!


They were appearing weekly in The Camden New Journal from October 2011 and also it's sister papers, The Islington Tribune and The West End Weekly until they were unceremoniously dropped due to lack of space in June 2012. They're now looking for another physically printed home. In the mean time they're residing in cyberspace.

What's the most embarrassing thing you've done?

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 7, 2014, 5:05 AM

I received a comment on my Urban Gerbils strip 'Paws 4 thought' from that made me think back to a particularly embarrassing situation I had years back and I thought it might be fun to find out from a few fellow dA'ers what their most embarrassing moment has been. From my point of view it's hard to pinpoint one actual event, I've had a few, from getting my head stuck in revolving doors at a bank, to passing out on a hot train carriage and head butting a passenger on my way down. Whatever yours may be, feel free to comment below and I'll do a cartoon of the funniest one and link you on my page.

Have done. Fascinating watching the speed drawing. So much detail.  I find it hard to summon up that much patience.

I think 'Rather Death' is really cool. I like the black and white artwork and the story is interesting.  
Thank you very much! :)
