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?)

    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. 🙂
