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 … Continue reading Hamer & Isaacs Logo Design

The Snail Clef – A new cartoon by Hannah Sterry. Mugs and cards available here: Zazzle UK, Zazzle US. 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 … Continue reading Music Cartoon: The Snail Clef
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: Sterry Cartoons has a facebook page now too (as well as nice new … Continue reading Music Cartoon: Aimez-vous l’accent?
My ambition, above anything else is to make a living from things that make people smile. It’s why I love music, cartoons, comedy – other people being happy and sharing just a single little moment brings me more happiness than anything else and if I can’t create and share experiences and laughter with other people then I don’t really know what my life is for. … Continue reading Hopes, Dreams and Designs

It’s scary posting music in a public space, but this afternoon I decided to record a world-jazz-funk-fusion version of Summertime by George Gershwin and thought it’d be nice to share. The aim of this really was just to create something that I was happy with, within a deadline of a few hours and to build confidence. I’ve been quite self conscious about singing solo since secondary school … Continue reading Summertime: The world-jazz-funk-fusion version!
This is the very first cartoon I ever created and now you can buy it on all sorts of things in my Zazzle store! As far as I can remember, the idea for this cartoon was sparked by a chat with a lovely friend (singer and teacher Sarah Barnett). We were wondering whether it would be possible to make smiley faces out of music notes. I got a … Continue reading Musical Compliments
