Nameless Dread

Posted on: April 30, 2020

Here’s a cartoon about Nameless Dread. The dread a lot of us are feeling at the moment actually has a name, the very serious one of Covid-19, but this might make you smile anyway.

Cartoonist’s Note: Some of you might be familiar with this cartoon and have noticed that I’ve changed the name of the Nameless Dread, which was originally called Kevin. I did the original cartoon so long ago that Kevin Rudd wasn’t yet on the political scene, Kevin was just a random name. But once Rudd appeared the whole meaning of the cartoon changed, so to get back to my original intention, I’ve changed the name to Dennis. Once upon a time there was a car dealer in Melbourne called Kevin Dennis who advertised a lot on tv, so the two names have always been linked to me. Plus I could use some of the same letters. (Apologies if you knew the cartoon and your favourite thing about it was thinking it was Kevin Rudd. I can see that that works too).

    You have no idea how much this cartoon has helped me over the years. Thanks!
    (- but did you realise you didn’t change the name in the second bottom panel?)

      Oh no! How stupid of me. Eye roll. Will have to fix that up, thanks for letting me know. Glad that the cartoon has helped you though.

        Just replaced this cartoon with one that says ‘Dennis’ all the way through, rather than leaving a renegade ‘Kevin’ in there. I had actually changed it all, but for some reason an interim version (2/3 Dennis, 1/3 Kevin) ended up in the post. Gremlins!

    Dennis the menace totally works for me. Perhaps lucky the original wasn’t Donald…

      A layer I hadn’t thought of! Thanks for the interpretation. 🙂
