Performing I’m an experienced jazz and classically trained flautist regularly performing with a variety of local and visiting musicians (see Live Music & Events). Most recently I’ve played with Hamer & Isaacs gypsy swing band and The Sterrys as well as being involved with a number of local events, including Malborough Amateur Dramatics Pantomime and Hope for Howard. I am also available to perform solo on the … Continue reading Hannah Sterry: Jazz Flautist
Sterry Cartoons began with a simple interest in illustration and comedy. The comic has received a great deal of interest online, partially due to the viral success of “Musical Compliments” (a cartoon featuring a joke about naturals and sharps), which has been shared by over 20,000 people worldwide. Inspire us to create more amusing cartoons and help share the smiles (and groans) by supporting us with … Continue reading Sterry Cartoons
My latest artwork hasn’t had anything to do with Sterry Cartoons. Most recently I’ve been designing this logo for Hamer & Isaacs gypsy swing band. The band have had a number of successes in the South West and London, with performances at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant in Padstow and upcoming performance at The Royal Albert Hall on March 8th (see their shows page for more information). Don’t … Continue reading Hamer & Isaacs Logo Design
Sharks may have become my favourite thing to draw. They have such a bad reputation, but all they really want to do is eat fish and turtles and get on in life. My remedy to this is to draw them doing silly things because – as we learnt from Defense Against the Dark Arts in Harry Potter – if you turn something that scares you (Boggart or … Continue reading Sharks love to sing

Do you want to see more cartoons? Do you like making random strangers smile occasionally? Then ‘Like’ Sterry Cartoons on Facebook and have a giggle! 🙂 Silly advertising over! Have fun and laugh lots! x Continue reading The EyePhone
Last week I asked people to send in their requests for Sterry Cartoons on Facebook and here’s the first completed cartoon! This particular request was from ‘Bilgeboy Bob’, who suggested: A crossed eyed cartoon computer with tongue hanging out, jumping up and down – caption “It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!” I think I got most of it, except the jumping up and down part. I really … Continue reading It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!
Vanity is very silly. I don’t really understand why there’s so much pressure for women to shave off various areas of body hair. You only have to leave it for a few days and the the hair is back… your legs feeling like they’re covered in hundreds of tiny cactus spikes. Might as well save the money on razors and use the time to draw … Continue reading Shaving a Cactus
Opposites Attract – Cartoon by Hannah Sterry. Continue reading A Very Geeky Valentines Day to You!
Have a cartoon about some teardrop things! I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I just think it’s nice to spoil your best friends and family all year round, not just for one or two days of the year. Even when it comes to Christmas and birthdays, my gifts are often “IOU”s handwritten on pieces of paper … Continue reading Happy Valentines Day!
This cartoon was the result of childishness, silliness and far too long spent around some not-so-agile cats! Available on t-shirts over here: Catastrophe T-Shirts Hannah x Continue reading Sterry Cartoons: Catastrophe!

It’s been a productive cartooning day… sorry to end it on such an angry note! 😛 On the subject of notes, I’d really appreciate it if I could have a few more likes on the Sterry Cartoons facebook page. Sorry to ask – I’m hoping to get enough people involved so that we can have some really good competitions and giveaways! Hope the cartoons keep you … Continue reading Sterry Cartoons: Crotchety!
Sheep are really clouds with legs. This is an idea I’ve had for a while, and I’m sure someone else must have done it, but I thought it would be good drawing practice anyway! Feel free to comment with links if you’ve seen/drawn anything similar. 🙂 Sterry Cartoons have invaded Facebook, Google+ and Twitter too! Follow us there for the latest news and comics!

“Breves should not be called breves… especially when you’re a woodwind player and breving is blooming difficult.” I realise this cartoon isn’t quite as accessible as some of my other music ones, because breves aren’t very commonly used, so here’s a chart briefly showing the note lengths (with the breve right at the top) and a link to wikipedia’s page on breves. Agh! Don’t look! … Continue reading Sterry Cartoons: Breve!

Accidental Love by Sterry Cartoons Valentines day is not my favourite day of the year, but it is a nice marker on the way to pancake day and Easter (cue unexplained tonnes of chocolate). Available on Cards and all sorts of things here. Continue reading Accidental Love – Music Cartoon
This cartoon is available on t-shirts, mugs, cushions and other gifts from the Sterry Cartoons Shop. Silly Methods of Musical Transport: Boat Bass Paddling to a gig in a fibreglass double bass. Apparently someone used to make fibreglass double basses in Salcombe, and they were perfectly fine if you used the body of the bass as a boat. Walking/Weightlifting Walking back from a gig with a very, … Continue reading How do musicians get to orchestra?

Last weekend I was lucky enough to catch up with some amazing friends in Bristol. We played board games, drank mead and ventured in to the City Centre for a quick bit of Christmas shopping! This week has been a bit quieter, so I’ve been working to improve the selection of products available in the Sterry Cartoons Shop (note: prices may vary). The new products … Continue reading New products in the Sterry Cartoons Shop
I’ve not been on here for a while, but while I’ve been away, some of my favourite bands have been very busy!
