I was recently asked to draw Subvertman's better half and as it was being supplied digitally added some half-tones. Hadn't drawn her since '95. The Subvertman comics were collected in Punk Strips, which if you're Stateside and into punk rock, is available to buy from Marc Arsenault's Wow Cool. Marc has a cool blog there too.

That reminds me - when I was holiday a while back someone next to us in a restaurant was wearing a shirt with one of my designs on, a picture of a punk and copper drawn for Riot fanzine and reprinted in Punk Strips. I don't know who makes and sells them but should they read this - and I know it's a long-shot - perhaps they'd consider spreading the joy by donating a few for another thrilling competition ;)

Okay, I hope you had a good xmas reader, and I wish you a very happy 2008. I had good comics for xmas as it happens: the latest Scott Pilgrim and Adèle Blanc-sec, Aya de Yopougon, Tamara Drewe (the graphic novel of the year) and as crimbo presents to myself, The Last Call and Zombies Calling by fellow SLG-er Faith Erin Hicks. I also had perfume, but the less said about that the better.

As ever I'm behind with my correspondence but will endeavour to catch up asap.

Wow, thanks for reading my book, hopefully it wasn't too embarrassing. You're my artistic Jesus right now. I love how you draw those punk kids...

Hey Simon! Nice to see that you still remember that punk stuff, it's been a blast from the past to see the drawing of Naomi, since I still have a Subvertman's "He's been on cider and he's f*cking angry!" poster on my wall and it makes me laugh each time I look at it. Cheers from Croatia!

Thanks, Nečista, I'm impressed that poster has lasted all these years! I enjoy your blog by the way and appreciate the link to mine.
