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.

Musical Cartoon Gifts
Here are just a few of the products I’ve made so far. They’d probably make great gifts for your musician friends and music teachers, or (if you’re anything like me) you might just want to treat yourself because it makes you giggle. There are all sorts of products to choose from on my Zazzle and Redbubble shops.
About Sterry Cartoons
Sterry Cartoons is a webcomic featuring educational music jokes and animal-related humour. 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.
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 let me carry on though – see for yourselves! Here’s a video from one of their performances at Plymouth Jazz Club!
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 guaranteed to turn the thermostat up a notch.
Let me know what you think, and if you like the music, feel free to head over to the Hamer & Isaacs website for more!
As of 2015, Hamer & Isaacs has morphed in to two separate groups:
Hot Club of Stonehouse
Hamer and Co.
Both groups can still be found playing in venues around the South West.
I had a little bit of spare time today and decided to create this for the #DevonHour community. It was a good chance to play with some of the textures in Inkscape and create something colourful and fun.
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!
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!
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. 🙂
Noticed a face in the boyfriend’s bass and had to share!
I’d love to do a series of instrument photo-cartoons so if you reckon your instrument would make a good cartoon, send me a photo/link via twitter, facebook or my contact form and I’ll try to turn it in to a character and feature it on the facebook page!
Spread the word and lets see how much of the orchestra we can cover! 🙂
