Postmen face many trials to ensure unwanted bills and junk mail get delivered to our doors. None is as terrifying as the garden or common octopus. The common octopus is one the most intelligent invertebrates and when threatened they eject a black cloud of ink which does probably stain. Infact after wolves, dogs and parrots octopuses (is that the plural) is the most dangerous predator of the mailman .
For more probably true facts about animals read my post on lemmings and lemmings pt 2.

A long time ago I read the Michael Dobbs book House of Cards so I was intrigued when Netflix produced their own version set in the White House. Its a sort of dark anti-West Wing now in season 3 and (I can't go further without revealing mild spoilers) Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood is POTUS having schemed and killed his way to the top. Now with all this power and influence all Frank wants to do is launch a New Deal style jobs program called America Works or Amworks.
Come on Frank you can be much more EVIL than that. So here are my cartoony imagining of what he really wants to do if he would only give in to his super villian side.

This week I chose to draw one of the Avengers Assemble cast for a caricature competition and I chose Chris Hemsworth's Thor.
In our house we often have conversations about who is our favourite Marvel superhero/Avenger and usually Iron Man comes out top but when choosing one to draw I opted for Thor with his long curly hair.
If you want to see how I built up the image you can look at the digital pencil drawing and inking stage below.
Of course you can always check out other older Avengers gags I've done like:
- Ironing Man - it's just the pun you expect.
- Environmentally Conscious Hulk in a supermarket
- Thor the theology of a modern God - but not drawn nearly as well
Then if you want to see how the pros caricature the Avengers check out the rest of the caricature competition

A while ago I drew this cartoon about lemmings for the competition and in researching it I read the story about how the myth of lemming cliff top suicide came about. After a brief resurgence in lemming cartoons on the forum I thought I'd have another go at a lemmings cartoon.
