A Cartoon-based Podcast?

I thought I’d try something a little different today, though it took me all day to finish something that should only have taken me an hour.

I’ve been wanting to make one of these speed drawing podcasts(?) for a while but a combination of problems got in the way. Primary among them is this PC’s tendency to crash when I’m capturing video (it only crashed once this time). There’s some bug in either the video capture device or my drawing tablet which means the PC blue screens randomly when capturing video. It’s a shame. I had originally thought to do some of these drawing sessions live but the hardware can’t handle it. It can barely handle this. I *really* struggled to edit this. When my software reported that it would be done in three seconds, it actually took half an hour to finish the task. Every damn bit of this has been a nightmare…

Anyway, there’s not much more to say. All I know is this is the kind of video I would watch if I could. But then I’m a bit weird like that… I don’t know if it’s really that enjoyable or if people enjoy listening to me witter on about cartoons and cartoonists. You certainly get to see which part of the What and the Why Podcast team brings all the professionalism…

Why Dunciad.com?

It’s a cool domain name and it was available. Yes, I know. Available. Crazy, isn’t it?


Yes. It also helps that it’s also my favourite satire written by Alexander Pope, one of the most metrically pure English poets who also knew his way around a crude insult or two. If you’ve not read it, you should give it a try.

So this is satire, right?

Can’t deny it. There will be some. But it’s also an experiment in writing and drawing, giving work away for free in order to see how many people are willing to support a writer doing his thing. It’s the weird stuff that I wouldn’t get published elsewhere in this word of diminishing demands and cookie-cutter tastes.
