I had an e-mail from the Treasurer of a church in the north of England over the weekend:
Hello, One of your flyers about “The collection” appeared in our collection today
(18/9/05). Quite funny. Any ideas how it got there? Always looking how to stimulate increased giving.
I’d like to point out that I don’t have any flyers with the ‘the collection’ cartoon on them. I can only assume that someone photocopied the cartoon (one of my Church Times ones) and put in the collection. I’m rather pleased that they did, I have to say. Perhaps I’ll have to start producing flyers to put into the collection.
Talking of which I said I’d reply to a comment by Derek in the comments thread of the ‘microcomics offer’ post: “Love the cartoons in the Church Times – why no mention on this site?”
Thanks Derek. I’m not deliberately not mentioning my Church Times cartoons here I don’t think. At the moment I have an agreement with the Church Times that they have exclusive use of the ‘Guide to the Church’ series, which is why I don’t publish them here on the website.
You can see them on the Church Times website in a limited sort of a fashion, though having said that you can more or less make out this weeks one as it’s fairly simple. But usually you need to buy the paper to see them properly.
Incidentally, my free microcomic offer is still very much open.
