Open All Hours

HEY YOU! If you're interested in buying one of my prints or sketchbooks, but you can't be bothered arseing about with emails and what-have-you... Well, I can't say I blame you. So you might be interested to know I have a BIG CARTEL shop now. And here it is:

You'll find this sort of thing waiting for you there:

And I'm going to be adding more prints and probably original artwork there in the months to come, so stay tuned. Hey, does anyone even know what stay tuned means these days? Like the record scratch effect (still ubiquitous in trailers for hack comedies), hasn't it become completely passe? How much "tuning" does one do on a daily basis these days? I'd argue almost none. That said, I bought a new TV recently and was surprised to find that extensive tuning was still necessary to find the channels (and I couldn't find *any* channels as it turned out, because Freeview is a f*cking joke). Hours - or it felt like hours - were spent staring at static, as my useless new telly tried to find BBC Four, ITV3... Christ, I would have settled for QVC. Nothing. When I was a kid, I called the static between channels "trash", and it scared the bejeezus out of me. It still creeps me out a bit, I don't mind admitting.

If there's a hell, this is what it looks like.
