Giles the master super RNLI Christmas card..

I love Giles and he must of influanced many comic cartoonists over his time...he has inspired me..

I always love his naughty children he does and busy pictures...also the extra detail when you find them it makes you laugh out loud!! (which I often do!)

The picture above is funny But also beautiful..Giles is the king of drawing all different weathers..I love his snow scenes ...his depth he puts into a picture.. his brick basically everything is great..:)

The amount Giles drew and the quality..SPEECHLESS!!

Giles is online..But I recommend you buy a book on ebay you won't regret it..
The image also shows how brave and strong these men are..going out in all weathers..lets support the RNLI..we might need them one day..

Christmas Judy comic Big n' Bertha by Gordon Bell 1981

Only two humour pages in the whole comic...this one stood out..I love the way Gordon draws dogs...its funny to think that Gordon was in the running for drawing the Dennis the Menace and Gnasher if David Sutherland hadn't got the job...when David Law retired..

The dog and the father have a certain Dennis the Menace Dad and Gnasher about them..

Theres nothing like a dog with a pipe..:)
