You Turn Me On – Valentine’s Cartoon


It’s Valentine’s Day soon and you can’t expect me to miss an excuse for a pun.

There are cards, mugs and all sorts of gifts in the shop.

Thank you!

Accidental Love – Music Cartoon


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.

Silly  Methods of Musical Transport:

  1. 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.

  2. Walking/Weightlifting

    Walking back from a gig with a very, very heavy keyboard because me and H had missed the last bus home and the taxi companies weren’t answering!


  3. Gigs on Transport!

    I have played a few jazz gigs on a ferry. We had to connect the keyboard up to a car battery for power and it was strange playing at any tempo that didn’t match the whirring of the engine, but it worked.

Go on! Play with your Food!

Pineapple Owl!

The village horticultural show happened last week, which meant that the house was full of delicious home-made cakes that I wasn’t allowed to eat and my mini-siblings were entering all sorts of craft competitions! My favourite competition was probably “Create a Vegetable Animal”, partly because I got to eat half a watermelon (see the turtle) and because the results were just brilliant. It made me wonder who made the silly “Don’t Play with Your Food” rule because… who wouldn’t want a whole kitchen full of things like this:

Myrtle the Watermelon-Turtle

Caterpillar Cake

Not a vegetable animal, but still delicious!

So, kids and adults… have fun and be creative with your food!

P.S. Sadly all of these creatures have now been eaten. Pineapple owl was chopped up and used in a fruit salad.

Don’t Eat The Kiwis!


Another cartoon that I’ve been wanting to release for a while!

Sharks love to sing


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 Shark) in to something that makes you laugh, somehow it stops being scary.

You may see more shark comics appearing soon, because I love drawing them doing ridiculous things.

This design is available on t-shirts, mugs, cushions, bags and lots of other things from the Sterry Cartoons Shop on Redbubble.

Music Cartoon: The Snail Clef


The Snail Clef – A new cartoon by Hannah Sterry.

Silly misunderstanding of the week:

“Yesterday I was asked to watch the chickens, so I wandered outside. Apparently the one I was meant to watch was already in the oven.”

We have a few broody hens and an escape artist cockerel, so it didn’t seem like a particularly strange request at the time. They probably wouldn’t escape so much if we clipped their wings but that generally only happens shortly after they’ve escaped, eaten all of the seedlings and terrorised the cats.

The chicken in the oven came out with a nice tan! 😛

Hope you like the cartoon! If you’d like to see more, visit Sterry Cartoons facebook page!

Music Cartoon: Aimez-vous l’accent?

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

Earlier today, I found out that one of my cartoons has been shared on facebook over 1000 times, and I’m amused at the thought of that many people seeing it and laughing/groaning simultaneously (I am easily amused), so I’ve decided to make some more.

Today I give you… an animated french music cartoon gif:

Marshmellow Marshmalicious

I have no idea what I was thinking when I drew this, but I’m blaming English for being a crazy language full of homophones. Not suitable for vegans.
