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.

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!
Have a cartoon about some teardrop things!
I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I just think it’s nice to spoil your best friends and family all year round, not just for one or two days of the year. Even when it comes to Christmas and birthdays, my gifts are often “IOU”s handwritten on pieces of paper (with a little doodle for good measure). On the odd occasion that I do think of something inspired (giftwise), I’ll tend to be so impatient that I want to give it to the person straight away, wanting them to get as much use and happiness out of whatever-it-is (and wanting to see a huge smile). Friends seem to be the same.
The idea of Valentines Day is nice, but spontaneity seems like much more fun!
