I can’t stop to make any further comment today as I am terribly busy. Mainly urgent administration tasks but also the arrival of the new CartoonChurch HQ shredder. There is going to be some shredding taking place today, I can tell you.

This is another from the latest book. It took a certain amount of research and talking to people if I remember correctly, and I’m sure it bears no relation to reality, but I quite like it. The final result turned out to be a bit more detailed than intended so had to be printed at a larger size thereby causing all sorts of minor problems.
If you’d like to print this in a parish magazine / presentation / handout in the hope of persuading people to be ordained then this link has information about how to do so.

You can see a larger and more readable version of this cartoon, along with republication information, here on the main site.
I will leave you to decide which of the sort of churchgoer you are.
This is the very first cartoon from the book The Exciting World of Churchgoing. If you start at page 1 and then give up this is the only cartoon you will see. It is also the first of a large batch of cartoons (ten) I will be uploading to the CartoonChurch site over the next while or two. There will be one a day, or perhaps two a day if I am keen or none a day if I am busy.

Those who think I sit around all day looking out of the window would be partially correct. But I do occasionally put pen to paper, and one of the times this happens is when I do my drawings for Youthwork Magazine. Some of the cartoons I have done for the magazine are now on their website, the image above being an extract from one of those.
These are the direct links to the cartoons that have been put up:
Introduction to the project
The youth work trolley
The Christian festival
More will be posted before too long I am sure, and in a month or two these will start to appear here on CartoonChurch.com for subscribers to download.
As a mildly pleasing but ultimately uninteresting aside, clicking on each of the cartoons brings up another page with the same picture entitled (for example) ‘Walker Episode 3‘. I am secretly very pleased that my episodes are being documented in such a way.
You can follow Youthwork Magazine on the Twitter if you’d like to be kept informed each time I have an episode.

This is another drawing scanned from my 2011 notebook. I didn’t do it on the train owing to peer pressure (pressure from people peering).
So, men and women. Last time I talked about them was in 2007 (Blog post: Segregating the sinful sexes). In that post I said I wasn’t a fan of separate groups in a church for men and women. I still am not a fan of such things, but I like to review my opinions every 3.3 years, so this is that time.
I’m still of the opinion that splitting people up by sex says something about a church and it isn’t a good thing. But then again I know people who find their church group for men or for ladies very helpful so who am I to deny them? Perhaps it is important for men to have other friends who are men and for women to have other friends who are women and such groups encourage such a thing in a good way.
There’s all sorts of other things I could write about this, but I mustn’t or I’ll get myself into a pickle. If you’ve noticed I never say anything online any more for that same aforementioned reason. There’s nothing worse than getting into a pickle.

It is the 11th of January and I haven’t blogged yet in 2011. This is a scan from my this year’s notebook.
The left hand side is a cartoon, in case that needs to be said. I might draw it properly, we shall see. The words on the right hand side have been left in purely to provide a sense of mystery and intrigue. It seemed a shame to erase the words ‘PCC flower youth’.
I enjoy jotting things in a notebook. Unfortunately in this modern age it is all too easy to post one’s observations straight onto Twitter rather than draw them in a notebook. I have to resist doing this. The Twitter writing is a far easier course of action, but ultimately less fulfilling. What I am trying to say is whenever you see me on Twitter please ask me to be quiet and go and write in my notebook instead. Thank you.
It is also awkward to draw in a notebook in certain social settings. I tend not to draw whilst on the train, which is silly as it would be an ideal time. This is partly to do with not wanting to be overlooked and partly the intense pressure from society to look at an electronic device.
Happy mid-January to you all.
