Thursday

I have a new piece over at Reaction (clicky here) about the politics around the violence that is sure to define the last weeks of this election campaign. I was quite pleased with it, pleased too that it got a retweet by Adam Boulton. I have these moments when I actually feel like I’m part of the bigger political universe, rather than a watcher from afar.

In other news, I’m finding myself doing more editorial cartoons again. Perhaps it’s cyclic. They take so much longer to do because they’re in colour, which makes it more frustrating that they tend to have their moment. A day late and nobody much cares. However, if I don’t produce them, I guess nobody knows that I can produce them…

I had a terrible night’s sleep last night so I might leave this here until my brain is more suited to rambling. I have a cartoon to finish and it’s on a timer…

Why Dunciad.com?

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

Really?

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.
