Dennis in Liverpool

Toytopia in Liverpool this weekend was a real hoot, with dozens of Dennis's, millions of Minnies and a bunch of Bananamans amongst many others. And yesterday, the REAL Dennis the Menace and Gnasher were there, with Beano Colourist, Nika, and there they both are!

Anniversary Noted

I'm reminded that this week is 35 years since I got lucky and got my first real paying job as a cartoonist. But I'd been drawing for nearly twenty years by then; at school, known as 'Parko' I always had a pen or pencil in my hand. Even today, former school friends and teachers will recall me as 'the quiet lad with the pencil'. Well, some things never change, yet some do. I'm not quiet nowadays. So, as I take sixteen minutes off for a quick tincture in celebration, here's to the past, and all it's rustic mellow memories, and here's to the future, with it's unknown corners and hopeful pleasures, and most importantly to today, where it all actually happens, good, bad or mundane.
