“When I’m Killin’ Zombies!” – George Formby Parody Song

When I’m Killin’ Zombies

*To the tune of “When I’m Cleanin’ Windows” by George Formby.

Now I go killin’ zombies to keep m’self alive

Wandering round the suburbs with me handy MP5

Now it’s a job that don’t suit me

But zombie killer you would be

If you could see the hell I see

When I’m killin’ zombies

Armageddon’s just a blast!

If only virus worked that fast

The things I do to save me arse

When I’m killin’ zombies

In my profession I’ll work hard

But I’ll never stop

I’ll kill these blasted zombies

Until I’ve had me lot

The zombie bride, she looks divine

The groom escaped her just in time

A wedding’s just a battle line

When I’m killin’ zombies

The living dead just want your brains

Don’t care for your cash or chains

The streets run red until it rains

When I’m killin’ zombies

The virus claimed this camera guy

Who ate the brains of Stephen Fry

Who knew the dead could quote QI?

When I’m killin’ zombies

In my profession I’ll work hard

But I’ll never stop

I’ll kill these blasted zombies

Until I’ve had me lot

Undead walking side by side

Arms outstretched and eyes all wide

There’s no emotion left inside

When I’m killin’ zombies

—— Instrumental ——

This living nightmare ain’t no fun

I’d never leave without my gun

Won’t stop until the battle’s won

When I’m killin’ zombies

My comrade clutches his behind

Got bitten on his… never mind

Natural selection isn’t kind

When I’m killin’ zombies

In my profession I’ll work hard

But I’ll never stop

I’ll kill these blasted zombies

Until I’ve had me lot

A zombie staggers down the street

One head shot and that guy’s dead meat

I’ll shoot ‘em back until I’m beat

When I’m killin’ zombies

When I’m killin’ zombies

Hopes, Dreams and Designs

Sterry Cartoons T-Shirt Designs

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.

I expect lots of people feel like this but just don’t know how to get to the point where they’re spending the majority of the time doing the thing they love and… that’s ok! I have no idea what I’m doing, but while I’m still in education I’m going to spend my time learning as much as I can about the subjects I love, taking action in testing new ideas, creating new products, promoting myself and aiming high. I hope that if you have similar dreams you can do the same. 🙂

Here are a few of my favourite t-shirt designs so far – you might have seen them before, but I hope they give you a giggle!

Musical Compliments

Musical Compliments - A music cartoon by Hannah Sterry (Sterry Cartoons). Musical Compliments A silly musical cartoon, showing two music notes chatting. The conversation reads: “Liking the natural look!” “Thanks! You’re looking pretty sharp yourself!” It’s just a bit of musical fun. Would make an ideal gift for anyone musical; music students, teachers and lovers of amusing puns! Designed by Hannah Sterry.

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 little bit obsessed and eventually came up with these.

The music puns followed on naturally and made a few friends smile, so they stayed. 🙂

Musical Compliments 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 (not just these ones), so if you want to see the whole range have a look over here (Zazzle Shop).

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.
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

The Boyfriend Song: Lyrics Only

Aimez-vous l'accent? - French music cartoon gif by Hannah Sterry

The Boyfriend Song

Do you mind conversations about zombie ninja pirates?
How about debates about the newest things in science?
Do you like Monty Python? Are you musical at all?
Can you manage to be lewd without losing your class at all?

Because…
I’d like a boyfriend please!
I’d like a boyfriend please!
It’s mostly for great company and not those birds and bees,
So I’d like a boyfriend please!
(Y’know, if it’s not too much trouble)

Are you fussy about food?
Are you considerate or rude?
Do you like cats (no, not for dinner)?
Are you taller? Fatter? Thinner?

(Could you possibly put up with my ridiculous ideas?)

Do you think this drawing’s great?
What kinds of people do you hate?
Are you kind and are you stable?
Are your hands above the table?

Because…
I’d like a boyfriend please!
I’d like a boyfriend please!
I’m obviously too fussy, but I’d like one that’s a tease.
Yep, I’d like a boyfriend please!
(Or maybe I’m closing my mind too much)

I shouldn’t be so picky about gender.
But instincts have a stranglehold on me.
It shouldn’t be my fate, to pro-cre-ate;
There are already too many fish in the sea.

Anyway…
If we’re going to be so ridiculously politically correct about it…
Might as well include everybody…

I’d like a girlfriend please!
I’d like a girlfriend please!
And if you’re unsure, it doesn’t matter anymore.
Leave judgements and criticisms at the door.

You could be hetero- or homo-
It’s no problem; I’m no phobe- Oh.
I just have one more thing to say:

Though, theoretically, I’ve no preference,
Logic didn’t get the reference.

So… I’d still probably like a boyfriend please.
(Apply now with your CVs.)

———————————————————

I feel I should point out that I have a lovely boyfriend (and a ridiculous sense of humour), so please don’t take this seriously – it’s just a bit of fun! This is a poem/song I’d forgotten about and unearthed as I was trying to clear up the mess of files on my computer with names like “idea”, “another thing” and “messing about”.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post anyway! Let me know what you think in the comments!

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.

Make a request! What would you like to see me play?

Hello! Hannah here!

I’m currently taking requests for harp covers and will be recording and uploading the results to youtube! I’m happy to attempt absolutely anything… well, anything possible (things like “Flight of the Bumble Bee” might be a bit of a bother). Requests for folk, heavy metal, jazz and pop are all welcome – I’ll try them all!

Feel free to request flute pieces too – If you want to hear a cool jazz version of “God Save the Queen”, or a Jethro-Tull-style rendition of Adiemus, I’ll do it – Make these suggestions as crazy and wacky as you like!

Can’t wait to hear what you come up with! Just leave a comment or send me a tweet: @Hannah Sterry

Disclaimers are strange! I’ve often wondered why anyone still has to write “May Contain Nuts” on packets of peanuts. It’s like writing “May contain animals” on the sign for a zoo – you’d be darned disappointed if there was nothing there.

Anyway, I can guarantee that no stick men were harmed in the making of hangman, or in the making of this t-shirt, even if it is just because  2D characters are invincible and brilliant. 🙂

 

General Life & Nice Policemen

Silly little things happen in life and living in a tiny rural English village presents its own small amusements (even if it is just that every now and then you find that a horse has pooed in your garden). Well, today the police were parked in the road opposite my house and my dad couldn’t decide whether to go and take them a cup of tea. He didn’t go out there in the end, but maybe it’s just the thought that counts!
