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.

How many gerbils fit on an envelope? by DannoGerbil
How many gerbils fit on an envelope?
This was the result of my total boredom today. One of the security guys went sick at work, so I took over his job for 3 hours. I quickly realised that I'd forgotten to bring in my iPad today, I had no book, nothing. All I had was an envelope to draw on. I decided to see how many russy and nutty's I could fit onto it in my time there. Would anyone care to try and count how many there are? 
pasta la vista by DannoGerbil
pasta la vista
My wife recently visited Rome for three days, so the subject of pasta has come up on a few occasions since. This is where my latest inspiration came from. I took a week off work to look after our 4 kids . There were a lot of tears and tantrums for the first few days....But then I felt better and managed to look after them till she got home! 
If Russy were a super villain, what power would he have?

Hi, and welcome to :iconthewrittenrevolution: theWrittenRevolution!
There are lots of things you can get involved in: 

Bullet; Red we post monthly writing prompts (that include prizes, and a chat event during the month to help people with their pieces),

Bullet; Black publishing opportunities from other sites (whenever we come across one!),

Bullet; White we have a monthly feature that includes a deserving member, two of the best critiques we've seen during the month, and two helpful writing resources,

Bullet; Red a monthly affiliates feature of two Literature groups,

Bullet; Black and a biweekly-ish article in which one of our admins gives an in-depth critique to one of our members' work that hasn't received much feedback.

We'll soon be reviving our chatroom with weekly activities, so stay tuned for that too. :D (Big Grin)

We also have Facebook and Twitter accounts. On our profile page you will find links to the latest of all the activities I listed up here and to our social networks that will help you keep updated, so feel free to look around and ask if you have any questions, we're here to help!

Welcome to the revolution. I salute you!
