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. 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.

Yes, the closing date of January 14th has now been reached for the "draw a naked gerbil" competition. If you submitted artwork after that date then it can't be judged. The winners will be posted up as soon as our panel of judges have come to their decision on who has drawn the best naked gerbil. Thanks to all those who entered.

Apologies to all Peanuts fans, of which I am a huge one, but I had no control over Russy's heinous act! He is my Tyler Durden!

Have you seen the Peanuts movie?

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 15, 2015, 4:45 AM

Hi folks, 
I am looking forward to seeing the new Peanuts(Charlie Brown Snoopy) movie when it is released here in the UK on Dec 21st. 
I've been a big fan since a child  and I'm really  pleased that on it's 65th Birthday Peanuts is  going to be reaching another generation of kids  through the movie. Hopefully there will be plenty of merchandise to go with it as I am an avid collector of all things Snoopy related. I know there are Macdonalds toys soon to be available.  Has anyone out there on dA seen it yet? If so , what did you think. Does it do justice to the original strip? Is it funnier?
