Accidental Love by Sterry Cartoons
Valentines day is not my favourite day of the year, but it is a nice marker on the way to pancake day and Easter (cue unexplained tonnes of chocolate).
Available on Cards and all sorts of things here.
This cartoon is available on t-shirts, mugs, cushions and other gifts from the Sterry Cartoons Shop.
Silly Methods of Musical Transport:
Paddling to a gig in a fibreglass double bass. Apparently someone used to make fibreglass double basses in Salcombe, and they were perfectly fine if you used the body of the bass as a boat.
Walking back from a gig with a very, very heavy keyboard because me and H had missed the last bus home and the taxi companies weren’t answering!
I have played a few jazz gigs on a ferry. We had to connect the keyboard up to a car battery for power and it was strange playing at any tempo that didn’t match the whirring of the engine, but it worked.
This has always seemed like a silly phrase. I should probably add that I don’t advise holding bees (unless you’re a trained beekeeper).
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:
More silly music cartoons:
I have no idea what I was thinking when I drew this, but I’m blaming English for being a crazy language full of homophones. Not suitable for vegans.
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. 🙂
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).

Opposites Attract – Cartoon by Hannah Sterry.
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
