It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!

“It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!” by Sterry Cartoons. Cartoon requested by ‘Bilgeboy Bob’.

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 enjoyed drawing the ridiculous expressions! 😛

‘Like’ Sterry Cartoons on Facebook for more silliness!


Fathers’ Day Feature

This bit of the post is a few days late. My dad drew me this cartoon on Fathers’ Day and made me smile, so I thought I’d share it with you too. If you ever need a cool saxophonist or someone to quote amusing bits of Jasper Carrot and Blackadder, he’s the guy to ask!

Emo Toucan Emoticon! Fathers' Day Cartoon from Dad.
Emo Toucan Emoticon! Fathers’ Day Cartoon from Dad.

Anyway, I’d better get on with drawing the next of my silly cartoons. This time the suggestion is from Pete Foreman, who had a load of brilliant requests:

A knapsack with sleeping cats in it? An old fashioned telephone that, instead of a number wheel, has an eye in the centre of it (an iPhone)? In a similar vein, a pocket watch? A handbag?

Hopefully I’ll manage to complete one of them tonight! x

I jokingly asked for one of the #bespokeballads a few days ago, but didn’t expect anything, so I was delighted (and amused) today when I found they’d written a song for me. They made me giggle!

LYRICS

Hold the front page, stop press!

Hannah’s got a story in the South West.

Sterry’s really growing Plymouth Art more.

It’s a smelly faux pas mis-typing Dartmoor!

 

You may think she’s only a reportist,

Look a little closer she’s a sweet jazz flautist.

We didn’t bring a flute, didn’t think we oughta,

But the flute’s really only a sideways recorder.

 

[Recorder Solo]

 

Quick, Stop The Press!

There’s a budding flower!

Another huge story on #devonhour!

Pawprints on the bed; inconsiderate cat!

While Sterry’s getting merry on the #spiritchat!

 

Harp Solo!

 

If you’re all wiped out from making animation,

It doesn’t even need to be an occasion,

If four of you want some razzmatazz,

There’s a five course meal with cocktails and jazz!

 

Katy and Liz are on twitter too, so they’d probably love a few follows and comments. Let them know what you think!

The Boyfriend Song: Lyrics Only

Aimez-vous l'accent? - French music cartoon gif by Hannah Sterry

The Boyfriend Song

Do you mind conversations about zombie ninja pirates?
How about debates about the newest things in science?
Do you like Monty Python? Are you musical at all?
Can you manage to be lewd without losing your class at all?

Because…
I’d like a boyfriend please!
I’d like a boyfriend please!
It’s mostly for great company and not those birds and bees,
So I’d like a boyfriend please!
(Y’know, if it’s not too much trouble)

Are you fussy about food?
Are you considerate or rude?
Do you like cats (no, not for dinner)?
Are you taller? Fatter? Thinner?

(Could you possibly put up with my ridiculous ideas?)

Do you think this drawing’s great?
What kinds of people do you hate?
Are you kind and are you stable?
Are your hands above the table?

Because…
I’d like a boyfriend please!
I’d like a boyfriend please!
I’m obviously too fussy, but I’d like one that’s a tease.
Yep, I’d like a boyfriend please!
(Or maybe I’m closing my mind too much)

I shouldn’t be so picky about gender.
But instincts have a stranglehold on me.
It shouldn’t be my fate, to pro-cre-ate;
There are already too many fish in the sea.

Anyway…
If we’re going to be so ridiculously politically correct about it…
Might as well include everybody…

I’d like a girlfriend please!
I’d like a girlfriend please!
And if you’re unsure, it doesn’t matter anymore.
Leave judgements and criticisms at the door.

You could be hetero- or homo-
It’s no problem; I’m no phobe- Oh.
I just have one more thing to say:

Though, theoretically, I’ve no preference,
Logic didn’t get the reference.

So… I’d still probably like a boyfriend please.
(Apply now with your CVs.)

———————————————————

I feel I should point out that I have a lovely boyfriend (and a ridiculous sense of humour), so please don’t take this seriously – it’s just a bit of fun! This is a poem/song I’d forgotten about and unearthed as I was trying to clear up the mess of files on my computer with names like “idea”, “another thing” and “messing about”.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post anyway! Let me know what you think in the comments!

Shaving a Cactus

Vanity: Cartoon cactus shaving with razor.

Vanity: Cartoon cactus shaving with razor.

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 silly cartoons of cacti instead!

People are funny animals.

Disclaimers are strange! I’ve often wondered why anyone still has to write “May Contain Nuts” on packets of peanuts. It’s like writing “May contain animals” on the sign for a zoo – you’d be darned disappointed if there was nothing there.

Anyway, I can guarantee that no stick men were harmed in the making of hangman, or in the making of this t-shirt, even if it is just because  2D characters are invincible and brilliant. 🙂

 

General Life & Nice Policemen

Silly little things happen in life and living in a tiny rural English village presents its own small amusements (even if it is just that every now and then you find that a horse has pooed in your garden). Well, today the police were parked in the road opposite my house and my dad couldn’t decide whether to go and take them a cup of tea. He didn’t go out there in the end, but maybe it’s just the thought that counts!

Happy Valentines Day!

"Finding Someone Like You" by Sterry Cartoons (Valentines Day Heart Cartoon)

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 (with a little doodle for good measure). On the odd occasion that I do think of something inspired (giftwise), I’ll tend to be so impatient that I want to give it to the person straight away, wanting them to get as much use and happiness out of whatever-it-is (and wanting to see a huge smile). Friends seem to be the same.

The idea of Valentines Day is nice, but spontaneity seems like much more fun!

Sterry Cartoons: Beeline

At the moment I’m worried about the bees. It seems that renaming a certain piece of music to “Plight of the Bumble Bee” might actually be a good idea (please don’t ask me to play it… can’t breathe)! There seem to have been various explanations as to what’s causing the damage to the population, but nobody seems to actually be doing anything about it. We need some bee-protecting legislation!

Anyway, on a lighter note, this design is available on t-shirts over here: Beeline Shirts

Thanks again and feel free to comment all over the place!

This cartoon was the result of childishness, silliness and far too long spent around some not-so-agile cats!
