Losing It…

A rare late night update just to say that I think I’m losing it. Or it has to be a symptom of lockdown.

I’ve been drawing cartoons non-stop for what seems like ages. Yesterday I said I finished Book 3. I thought I’d been working on it for about two months. It’s slightly over two weeks…

Two weeks!

I only realised this editing the ebook and noting the dates I uploaded the previous two. I’m a bit embarrassed and I can’t even explain what happened. It felt like months. And I mean long months. Not short ooh-where-did-the-week-go months. Every bit of it felt like I was struggling with inspiration. The cartoon ideas weren’t coming quickly enough…

Or so I thought. I did a count and I’ve drawn 44 new cartoons in that time. What does that work out at? Three a day? Madness!

I’m not sure what to do. I know I’m keeping myself busy by drawing but this is just too quick. I have to slow down. Or find something else to do with my time…

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.
