Hi diddly howdy hi ho to you all,

So we did it-365 days, 205 posts and 278 glorious cat based funnies! Is that not just the cat’s pyjama’s or what?

Well we’ve alot to get through today so lets waste no time- first up an amazing guest comic from the brilliant Tom Buddle. Let me hand you over to the man himself:

I would like to point out that despite the content of this “comic” I am in fact a cat owner and lover. This is simply an attempt to derive humour from one of the only words left in the English language Ben has not all ready done a funny off of.
Thanks for stopping. Bye!

How amazing is that!! Thanks again, Buddle.

But that’s not all, oh no- here’s a wondrous birthday gift from the insanely talented Paul Loudon:

Wowzers, right? Cheers Paul.

But today’s is a post that keeps on giving with this little Fan Art gem from Andy:

My TV is a Catatonic

 Sweet! Ta muchly, sir.

And here’s my strip of the day:

Cat on heat.

And as an extra special treat if you click here I’ll show you the development of this cartoon from sketchbook to blog!

How’s that for a slice of fried gold?

Now this has been a very busy year for me as I have not only been drawing Catatonic I have also created My TV is Evil and modern life is awesome as well as designing a couple of posters and opening night cards along the way. It has been a lot of work but I can honestly say I’ve never been happier.

Here’s to many years to come. Thank you again to Tom, Paul and Andy for their contributions to today’s post and to Lou for the Staedtler Triplus Color Pens that have added that extra dimension to my cartoons. Thank you to everyone who has commented on the blog and bouyed my sense of worth as well as improved the jokes. But most importantly:

Thanks to YOU for stopping by.


I hope I see you again soon.

  1. huh….I have a U.S.P. and I didn’t even notice! I think some new tags are in order:
    “convoluted”, “confusing” and “poorly executed”.
    big hitters I bet.

    congratulations mate and a very merry birthday,

    • ‘Convoluted’, ‘confusing’ and ‘poorly executed’? That’s what your mum said! … Wait.

      Anyhoo, are you a mental?! That’s right, i interrobanged your ass. That is visual punning of the highest order (and I know visual punnery) and I’m chuffed to buggery that the first bit of art work any of us has seen from you in 6 months is on my blog! KB tells me you are back on the tube, does that mean we might get some new sketches? Here’s hoping.

  2. Catagenesis; oh bloody hell, now I’ll have to see if I can apply that to a conversation tomorrow. Though unwittingly I seem to be attempting to kick-start some sort of catagenesis most waking hours.

    I was glad to be a part of this, seriously, so many unflichingly beautifully realised cat gags in the space of a meagre year, is commendable… in an obsessive, almost disturbed, pathological kind of way. Same feeling I get from the admiration of serial killers.

    • Thanks for the kind words, sir, though less for the comparison to a serial killer!

  3. Happy Birthday You! Excellent drawings, brilliantly awful puns – you’ve set yourself a challenge for the year ahead methinks. Ax

    • Thanks love, and what is life without the challenges?
