Sterry Cartoons Competition Results!

Rabbit Pi by Hannah Sterry (Sterry Cartoons)

Hello and thank you to all of the the people who suggested cartoons for my mini competition. There were quite a few good ones, both on Sterry Cartoons facebook page and on twitter (@HannahSterry).


TOP 3 FACEBOOK SUGGESTIONS:

“It’s PC gone mad!” ~ Bilgeboy Bob
“The iphone” ~ Pete Foreman
“Isambard Kingdom Brunel trying to construct Ikea furniture.” ~ Mitch Mitchell

I have already drawn two of these (and a bonus Rabbit Pi), just for fun:

Tonight’s project is going to be drawing Isambard Kingdom Brunel and possibly Miss Von Trapp (she’s got a little mini competition going on).

Friendly Tweeting

I was chatting to a few lovely people on twitter and asked whether they’d like some cartoons too. Here’s what they came up with:

I’ll be drawing and posting these throughout the week and have already started sketching them! I might draw a few more, because some of the suggestions were so good!

Hope you’ve all had a good week and keep creating! 😀

It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!

"It's PC gone mad, I tell you!" by Sterry Cartoons. Cartoon requested by Bilgeboy Bob.
“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! 😛

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.

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

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.

Sterry Cartoons: Crotchety!

Crotchety Crotchet - A music joke cartoon by Sterry Cartoons.

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 smiling!

All the best,

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: Breve!

BREVE! Funny music cartoon from Sterry Cartoons.

“Breves should not be called breves… especially when you’re a woodwind player and breving is blooming difficult.”

BREVE! Funny music cartoon from Sterry Cartoons.

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!
