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 first.

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...(I'm not bitter!)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.

I also draw illustrations of various kinds, mainly gothic as I'm a big horror fan. I have a seperate folder showcasing these. Again, any comments are most welcome.

There's hundreds of Admiral Ackbar memes across the internet, I know because I've gone through looking to see if anyone's done this gag, and as far as I can see no one has. Could be wrong though.

I've had a few ideas (or 'flydeas') for a new strip. This is the first one or the last depending on your comments. Hope you like, if not I'll stick to the gerbils and leave the fly gags to the professionals.

That's sweet of you to do a watch of my account. :)

 But please only do so if you like my art. I did that feature simply to help out other artists, it wasn't done in expecting anything in return.

The biggest compliment for me is to be told my work is original, being funny is something most people can do if they put their minds to it. Thank you!
