Earlier this week I did something to my knee and the doctor reckons I have Housemaid's Knee (Prepatellar Bursitis) and it may take a few weeks to clear up.
To cheer myself up I imagined all the inappropriate responses to me telling people this and drew them up as a cartoon.

This one for the CCGB competition is not merely topical it's live. I drew it as I watched several European entries in the Eurovision 2012 contest.
It reminds me a bit of a previous CCGB entry entitled Manufactured Pop.
For the record I like the Russian grannies Buranovskiye Babushki.

This was not my first attempt at the CCGB competition but given the topic a cartoon about Jesus seemed obvious. However apart from this one I don't regularly draw cartoons on this topic mainly because as a Christian it is hard to find an angle that isn't irreverent but still has something to say.
Take Baby Jesus and his presents the other cartoon when I tried to explore the humanity of Jesus the baby against traditional art's interpretation of the nativity. Here is Jesus showing off? Am I portraying miracles as something done for a laugh when they always had a serious purpose. Did Jesus have fun? As always I don't have enough answers but its sometimes fun to pose the questions.

Quite happy with my caricatures of the Right Honourable David Cameron and George Osborne but not so sure this attempt at the CCGB caption competition "It's a miracle!" is going to cause many laughs.
It is of course based on the news that unemployment fell by 45,000 to 2.63 million in the last 3 months. My graph is based on the BBC figures from 2007 onwards although I have used that old statistical trick of not starting the Y axis at 0 to make it seem more dramatic.

Today Roy Hodgson announced his squad for Euro 2012 as the markets crashed around him.
As an Englishman in Scotland I have followed the England side since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico and when I read the names in this squad it just felt like World Cup 2010 all over again. Many of the same players who disappointed in that tournament are back again and there is a lack of new talent.
