Growl goes to China!

August 18, 2011

The gorgeous little monster Growl now speaks Chinese!  I’m terribly impressed at her cleverness, and it’s nice to see that she’s just as cute in Chinese.  

For those of you who don’t know the story, Growl is a little monster who loves to growl. And gets into trouble for growling too much and so has to keep quiet.  Until she … more »

The Green and Yellow Lady

Holly, the five year old, saw Yellow is my favourite Colour and excitedly said, “It’s the Green Sheep lady’s drawing! I love her!”.  Then Claudia, the two year old, copied, and grabbed a … more »

Where is the Green Sheep….Dog?

June 28, 2011

I love a visual pun! This is the sheepdog belonging to Hilary, Patrick, Holly and Claudia (the same family as in the ‘Green and Yellow Lady’ post).

World Refugee Day

June 21, 2011

World Refugee Day is 20 June, which was yesterday, but I didn’t get a chance to put up this cartoon then, so I’m doing it now. There is a petition going round about ending Mandatory Detention, that policy which is so harmful to people’s mental health, leaving them in limbo for years and years, locked up like prisoners. … more »

Knitting in Public Day

June 11, 2011

I was recently sent this photo by Jonathan (click on the image to get the full version or hit ‘more’), who was trying to work from home for the day, but his gorgeous one year old daughter Mabel insisted on having Where is the Green Sheep? read to her over and over again. (Hooray! I can’t tell you how proud … more »

Miles is 1!

May 31, 2011

Actually I’ve had this photo for ages, so Miles is more like one and half now. Happy One and a Halfth Birthday Miles! Here’s a fantastic cake that was made for his party – the Near Sheep, one of my personal faves. (Click on the image to get the full version.)

Cartoonist QandA

May 31, 2011

‘Ern Malley’s Cat’, a personage on Twitter, conducted an interview of cartoonists on Twitter – with David Pope, First Dog on the Moon, Jon Kudelka, Eric Lobbecke and me. Here’s the great picture he made of the panel so you can see what we all look like (well okay, not really)

Happy Easter

April 21, 2011

I’ve done a lot of cartoons about Christmas in my time, but I think only ever one with any kind of  Easter reference.  Here it is:
