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.

Feel free to leave comments. the more feedback the better.

Shayla- May's pic
I drew this for my 5 year old daughter over her Easter break. She wanted all the characters from stories I tell her at bedtime. These include, Mr Unicorn, Herbert Sherbert Bill and Will.(Mice) Mr Cat, Supermouse and Godzilla. I also included her and her sister Alana (looking shifty) and the twins Eben and Elis riding the Unicorn! She really loved this pic although quick to point out any changes she wanted before the final picture was printed off. I think she's going to be an art critic when she grows up!

The oracle is back!

Russell  T. Gerbil by DannoGerbil

  • After a long hiatus, finally Russell.T Gerbil  AKA "The Oracle" is back and he wants your questions fired at him thick and fast. The crazier the better, it doesn't  matter to him, he's the Oracle, he knows everything. So do your worst...or as he says" BRING IT ON PUNY HUMANS I got an answer for everything!"WatchMe by NishithV

Bunny Thief by DannoGerbil
Bunny Thief
This strip is based upon a real conversation with my wife after she accused me of stealing her chocolate bunny. Halfway through the conversation I realised that this was my next inspiration for a strip, especially when she said, ''You know what they do to bunny thieves in prison!'' For the record, and I know you're reading this Erin, I DID NOT STEAL YOUR F&%*ING BUNNY!!!  

No matter what I say, she doesn't believe me and I am now forever known as ''The bunny thief''.
I think I was set up by our kids who probably ate the evidence. Chocolate bunny emote 

Anyhoo..Happy Easter!
