that's me on the left there

After a weekend in the emotional spin-cycle (for heaven's sake, crying at Dr Who?) I've put down some lines (on paper -- the mermaid strip) and am trying to quell my towering jealousy of all the friends who are going to Glastonbury. (Don't worry, tinyjo, I won't take it out on Cassiecat.) I made it out to Charlbury for a few hours on Sunday, but it wasn't a big festival thing; more like a temporary island of green trees and sunshine with a suitably sultry soundtrack (The Thumb Quintet, Sexy Breakfast). That seems to be the way at the moment: treks and islands. Of course, the treks can be good, too. I saw a badger on Donnington Bridge last night. Perhaps cities are becoming greener.

There was a photo of Andy by Matt I was looking for, didn't find it. Never mind ... this one's good, too -- from a workshop he was leading at Caption 2001 - Caption Loves You, where he was, as far as I can remember, talking about the romance of common objects. Later on the same weekend, he drew a six-page strip in a couple of hours, proof of concept for the marathon Sunday workshops that've been on at Caption every year since ... there you go, another thing to blame him for.

I shed a little tear when Jack kissed everyone...

I'm not going to Glastonbury! :-)

May I mention the typorgraphy in the cartoon?

of course!
I may not be able to answer any specific questions, though. That'll have to wait 'till its author swings by.

Re: of course!
I'm glad I put a typo in my comment, because I can't work out whether


is deliberately mis-written

just a mistake made in a screaming hurry. There's a midnight cut-off point on submussions, you see.

Oh, that strip's brilliant. I have a big cheesy grin on my face!
20th Jun, 2005 17:15 (UTC)
quite a lot of them around
Jenni's been digging them out of old BAPAs

I have the originals
so it's v likely to feature in something...

Sexy Breakfast: an acquaintance in the yr above is either the sister or the Significant Other of one of them (hmmm...). I always see Sexy Breakfast and Verbal Kink posters about, and they make me smile. Brilliant names.

There was a fox in my garden the other day, attempting to eat the chickens. My dad woke the whole house up, scaring it away.

*so* oxford
... I hope she knows whether she's sister or S.O. ... these things are important, you know.

You should tell your Dad to think of the poor starving fox-cubs.

I just wish the foxes would think of us poor buggers trying to sleep at 1:30am this morning. We had one performing karaoke over by the canal, and it was most definitely not appreciated, especially with a bedroom window open to avoid Ann and I expiring from the heat.

i love the little trumpet-nosed aliens in the adam ant strip.

I didn't realise it was Andy who drew that strip. I loved that strip when I saw it.

I think that year was the first Caption we came to and I was so impressed with people having comic races and being very energetic and enthusiatic all over the place.

we were all
pretty loved up that year ... must've been all of the wigs and comedy moustaches

The six-page strip
is yet another reason why I wish I knew him.
22nd Jun, 2005 10:38 (UTC)
you'll hear more about him ... but, yeah. See you soon x
22nd Jun, 2005 10:52 (UTC)
It has brought tears to my eyes
along with the photos of the man in action.
I look forward to reading/hearing/seeing as much of Andy and his work as I can.
Will be back soon. x

I remember he sat beside me at the garden table. His jacket was so suave.
