Sterry Cartoons

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

Hamer & Isaacs logo by Hannah Sterry. Hamer & Isaacs play volcanic, swinging gypsy jazz. Whilst portraying the influence of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, the unique addition of Rosie Corlett's soaring, flaming vocals is guarenteed to turn the thermostat up a notch. Rich Hamer (lead guitar) provides cut, thrust, panache and inspiration, and Mel Brindle Scullion (swing violin) utilises her impeccable classical pedigree to lend virtuosity to the flair of her improvisation. Julian Isaacs (rhythm guitar), a veteran of the gypsy jazz scene for over three decades, and the animated and vivacious lines of Howard Kahn (double bass) provide the driving force that is the rhythm section. Hamer & Isaacs Gypsy Swing Band are available as a guitar duo, an instrumental or vocal trio, or as a full quintet. Set the controls for the heart of swing and witness them for yourselves!

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

Beeline by Sterry Cartoons

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. … Continue reading Sterry Cartoons: Beeline

BREVE! Funny music cartoon from Sterry Cartoons. Sticky post

Sterry Cartoons: Breve!

“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!
