I Can't Sing! Harry and Steve go public!

My pals Harry Hill and Steve Brown have their first West End musical opening soon- a guaranteed hilarious take on the whole Simon Cowell talent show phenomenon! It's called "I Can't Sing!" , Harry did the concept and jokes and Steve the music (which is excellent by the way) and previews in February and March are available now. Tell 'em I sent you!
In a Dandy comic in 2012 I wrote and drew a comic strip where Harry and Steve collaborated on music. I must have had a premonition!

It's Minnie's Birthday

This week's Beano is a special issue- it's cover star ISN'T Dennis the Menace for once- it's Minnie! It's now 60 years since Leo Baxendale's female amazon made her full-time debut in The Beano. Having been drawn over the years by, following Baxendale, Tom Paterson, Ken Harrison and mainly Jim Petrie, Minnie is now drawn by me! So here's my birthday picture of the gal herself, for once, not actually minxing!
