A quick post to say Happy Christmas to everyone reading. Thanks for all your support of my endeavours this year – comments on my 63 blog posts, ideas for the 64 and a half cartoons I have done, buying the one calendar I have produced, and so on and so forth. I hope Christmas is a happy time for you, and all best wishes for 2012.

Book news. The ‘My Pew’ barrel has run dry (no idea why we keep them in a barrel). It is being reprinted and I am told that the ink on the new copies will be touch-dry in about a month’s time. The ones in the picture above are cardboard replicas and not real.
Don’t despair though, my other cartoon publications are still available. Church House Bookshop currently have special offers on the 2012 calendar (2 for £12) ‘The Exciting World of Churchgoing‘ (£6.29) and ‘The Dave Walker Guide to the Church‘ (£5.39). UK postage is £2.50 for orders under £25.00. Other booksellers are available of course, and I link to some of them on my books page.
I can also hint at the fact that there could well be another book next year. It will perhaps be launched in approximately summer (add or subtract two seasons in either direction). The title of this entirely hypothetical volume is still to be confirmed. Thinking of a title usually takes two months of full-time looking out of the window, so if anyone has any ideas let me know.

This is the last and final cartoon in the little youth work series I’ve been posting this week. This one is entitled ‘Punishments‘ (click for full version). Once again it is a cartoon from Youthwork magazine.
Thanks for the kind comments (by various means) on the pictures I’ve been posting this week by the way. The four I’ve used have, I think, been the four I liked best from the material that is over a year old, if that makes sense. I’m aiming to put up some more of my more general church ones next week, although it is becoming trickier to fit these things in as I am about to start spending rather more time working in London doing things that aren’t cartooning. But putting new cartoons up for subscribers is my number one priority (apart from the obvious other number one priorities – drawing weekly diagram, looking out of the window at things, dilly dallying, etc etc).

Today’s diagram on the CartoonChurch site is entitled Going to university (click that link to see it). This cartoon originally appeared as part of ‘The Dave Walker Guide to Youth Work’ in Youthwork magazine. Too see all of the youth work themed cartoons I’m posting this week see this page.
As for the cartoon: well, these things all* happened* to me, and I turned out OK*.
