1702.28 HOW DO YOU EAT YOURS?

No I'm not talking about Cadbury's Cream Eggs I am of course talking about the fact that today is Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as PANCAKE DAY!

1702.25 EVIL TAKES A DAY OFF #02

So here it is, issue 2 of "Evil Takes a Day Off". Like the musicians' second album I found this one difficult and it went through many revisions. There's only so far you can go with a piece before you lose sight of the goal so I present it here for your enjoyment. This for me is still a learning experience and if I'm honest I'm enjoying every minute.

1702.23 TWITTERVERSARY

Ten years ago I was looking for a service that would allow me to publish 'status updates' on my website and blog. Something small, short and snappy that I could perhaps update over WAP (do you remember WAP?) and not have to fire up the old desktop computer.

1702.19 THE ROLLERCOASTER

When Ronan Keating sang "life is a roller-coaster" I think he could have been describing the last few days of my life. Emotionally it's been joy to traumatic and everywhere in between.

1702.12 SUNDAYS USED TO BE SPECIAL

When I was a child Sundays used to be a time you spent with your family, TV was rubbish and it was illegal for shops to open (although some did so illegally). So what did we do? Well I used to visit my grandparents, Sunday dinner was mandatory and I remember listening to the radio quite a bit. I'm not from a religious background but I felt Sundays were a special day.

1702.09 UTOPIA ACHIEVABLE?

Watching Star Trek for all these years means I've been curious about the economy of the future. Captain Picard said that in the 24th century that people pursue personal enrichment rather than material items. But people still own property, have businesses and still acquire 'things'. So how does that work?

1702.03 GROUNDHOG DAY

This post isn't about the 1993 movie nor is it about the American tradition involving a fat ferret.

I don't blog about work. I have to be careful about what I say about work online. It's not like I'm a spy or anything (although if I was I'm guessing I'd say that anyway) they're just very strict. For the most part I enjoy my job, no two days are the same and I like that aspect.

1702.01 EVIL TAKES THE DAY OFF #01

It's been quite a few years since I drew a comic strip. When I was a kid I used to create entire comics and always wanted to draw for the Beano. Sadly that never came to pass but now I have the ability to self publish on my website. So after quite a bit of thought, loads of doodles and a number of revisions - here is my first edition. I've titled it "Evil Takes a Day Off", I want to look at what supervillians do when they aren't trying to take over the world. Enjoy...
