my life as a sketchbook

I have hidden in a sketchbook and a journal all my life. Time to open the books, reframe the story & time. Copyright Cinders McLeod. All rights reserved

I remember watching British Telecom’s commercials (Bob Hoskin’s “it’s good to talk”) at the same time as watching Britiain at war in iraq (“it’s good to bomb.”) (Operation Desert Fox, December 1998).

These mixed messages confused Broomie.

I remember being shocked reading the numbers the united states spent on arms vs. healthcare. And I remember reading  about someone who was willing to pay their taxes as long as if didn’t go towards the arms trade. Important things one remembers. This cartoon is a little bit about both.

One day, I heard “change is just around the corner,” one time too many

My life as a pram-pusher

This was one of those dead good cartoon moments for me. I’ll be looking for an idea then something kinda cool will dawn on me which would never have dawned on me if I didn’t have a cartoon to do. In this case, I was thinking about the blinkered aggressives who try to talk you into what you know not to be true, in this case, that genetically modified food is ok. Then it dawned on me. No one’s asking the quality of food that went into the brains of the great thinkers of the past. Maybe Darwin wouldn’t have come up with the thoughts he did had he eaten genetically modified processed food.

Rothesay is a town on the Scottish Isle of Bute. In days before cheap tickets to the Sun, Rothesay was the holiday destination for workers on the mainland.
