...the snake still in control in Syria. Working on my editorial cartoons right now. Digital colour seems to work best for me. Only took one shot at the caricature - could do better but I want to keep the timescale down. I had to google 'lying body' for research and it came up with a pic of Nick Clegg. Funny.

...the Shred. Didn't blog this a few weeks ago when it appeared in Private Eye. They have been keeping a keen eye on Fred Goodwin, the disgraced former CEO of RBS. Submitted both versions, the second being a digital manipulation of the first. You have got to love photoshop. The devil is in the details - the shirt that's too big for his pencil neck, the stiff hair, the pursed lip. Second version wins no question.

...apple? Managed to get another cartoon in Private Eye (1311) which is all good. Tho why they didn't put it in last issue to coincide with the launch of the Ipad 3 i have no idea! For those unaware the Foxconn factories (build for apple etc) do actually have nets to prevent overstressed workers from throwing themselves off. I know unbelievable huh - google it. Doesn't stop me wanting a nice shiny ipad - but i'd be happy to pay the extra - wouldn't you?
