Hi there bloggies, I don’t know what to say – October. How in the name of butthole are we in October? What’s happened to this year? I mean it’s good in a way it’s flying by as it continues to be a shit to everyone but really? I’m too old to have years fly by like this.

Anyways the good thing is that as things fly by that thing called Christmas will also be over soon. Can you believe it I’ve already seen mince pies, Christmas trees and decorations? I mentioned this to a person in the shop. I can’t remember the exact words of the bullshit response, but it was bullshit.


This month has been a little more fruitful that most of the rest of the year has, the first thing is that I’ve started a new series – 100 Ways to Die in Space, we’re already on the third post of this potentially long running series ao shave a look:

100 Ways to Die in Space – # 1 Going too Slowly
100 Ways to Die in Space – # 2 Going too Fast
100 Ways to Die in Space – # 3 Getting too Hot

Along with each post is some unique cartoon artworks, how do I know they’re unique – I made them that’s way. Telling stories in pictures and in words together is a big part of how I would like to push my posts forward. Let’s see how that goes… Best intentions and all that.


I also managed to submit a Blog Battle entry for this month:

Death Diamonds – Blog Battle

Is a story about concealment, not just of secret items, but secret agendas and how one man might not be fighting for what he believes in. If’ you’ve not already done so – why not have a read?



I hope the world wherever you are is calming a bit more and we’re finding a new and better normal. Much of my reading and creative work has suffered these last months. I have plans on things to pick this up by the end of the year and with Nano around the corner I have all kinds of planning to do – so I’m hoping goo things will come from this. Is anyone else taking part this year?

What have you been up to?

I hope you all out there keep safe and keep writing and smiling!

  1. I had to laugh at your first paragraph Simon. I said the same thing on my birthday post recently, “where on earth did all those years go.” Yep, can definitely relate. Hope October is a good month for you. Happy drawing! 🙂

  2. Funny with the Christmas thing. We all used to snicker at the old Peanuts cartoons where the mall ALWAYS had “X Days till Christmas” on banners no matter what cartoon it was. It’s not so far fetched anymore.
