Bill Ritchies The Cat Street kids The New Hotspur
I can't remember if anybody ever responded to Peter's request for an example of Bill Ritchie's 'Cat Street Kids' from The New Hotspur, but on the principle that 'it's better late than never' here's a look at one from October 1960.

Thanks Phil its great to finally see it.

When a cartoon doesn't work...fix it!!

These two jokes I showed to lots of people.......many of them didn't get the joke!! Some did after a long time. So now I've had another go at trying to make the joke work more quickly and clearer.

A lot of people didn't realise that it was a empty Tomato plant walking back to the greenhouse. Also that he threw tomatoes at a terrible play. So I've added two remaining tomatoes to the plant...also a loose one on the grass to indicate they came off him. Hopefully the joke is now clearer.

For this one I was trying to show how there act for the talent scout was too easy, its just cans piled up. Just by adding the word Acrobats to his desk...showing what talent he is looking at will again make the joke work.

If you see people struggling with one of your cartoons...change it...make it clearer.

Cartoon time

Great Phil that you can pop down to see me at the Woking craft fair. Its the building in the park next to the sports centre on the right. I'm a bit nervous. But once I relax I'll be cracking jokes and begging people to buy in know time..does this sells tactic work:)

Cartoon time

I have a craft fair coming up at Woking sport centre Sunday 12th October.

I'll be selling my cartoon cards like the ones above for 1 pound 25p. Its the first time I've done a proper fair so hope I can break even on the cost of the stall (which costs 25 pounds). So I'll be working hard on my cartoons from now on. So expect to see lots here on the blog.
Aim to do at least six cartoons a week.
Some will be ones which I've spruced up which you've seen at my main website.
I'm having to recolour them as I saved the work as a JPEG and its all badly pixalated. So redoing them and saving as a TIFF. Annoying But sometimes you learn the hard way.

Thank Spy and Muffy for the nice comments...

Reg Parlett- The Lion street lot from Lion comic 60's

thanks spy from
A very good visual comic forum. Spy puts up daily many different pictures of many different comics...cartoonists...drawings...comic paintings..very worth joining the forum to see this. I also add many pictures. We've shown art which we've got scattered around the internet or our own collection. The latest on the forum highlighted -MC lachlan, Don 'Mad Magazine' Martin, Ziggy, Off the Marks, Buster comic 'GALAXUS' etc...

love these poster pages in busy and lots to see and smile at. Leo Baxendale also drew a few of these for Lion as well.
