Just a little doodle I found in my brain. The popularity of standing desks is burgeoning in my office (though very few of my colleagues are giraffe.)

Another evening of music, this time the Jazz Jam at Oxford Jazz Kitchen. It was very crowded, so from the back I had a restricted view and had to make up quite a lot to fill the scene. It’s still fairly accurate, I reckon. Karen got up and performed the saucy “Kitchen Man” to an enthusiastically fast drum-beat, but managed to keep her cool and stay in the groove.
I created this comic as my entry for a competition. I didn’t win, so now I’m free to share it with my readers! To make it easier for most people, I’ve translated it out of the original Latvian into English.
[Art note: I decided in this case to use vector graphics (rather than my usual rough sketches and bitmaps) — which was interesting, being simultaneously liberating (let the computer do the work) and challenging (the need to make definite decisions on line position). Thank you inkscape.]
Well, it’s been a while, sorry. Nice to see Noah again, and then I found that a pair of hippos had crept in to this comic too. Probably they came just to communicate with their cousin. I have no idea what that pair leaning out of the porthole are.

6. Noah: "I got two of each kind"
The panel they said couldn’t be done. Itchy and Knee as you’ve never seen them before. Don’t miss this thrilling episode of The Family Tayberry.
Itchy and Knee appear as monks in pseudo renaissance / medieval trompe l'oeil room, with a tayberry hunt and annunciatory cherubs blowing trumpets and flutes. Anachronisms abound. Itchy bears the single tayberry on a golden cushion. Knee awaits, with a carving knife and fork to receive the berry. Is Itchy safe?
