I have a birthday approaching. I’d say it is a round number, but it is more a mixture of one angular number and one round one.
To celebrate this fact we (my wife and I) are embarking on a small tour of certain places. It will take approximately one week.
In some of the places we will be seeing some people and doing some things. The organisation of the venture has been haphazard, so please don’t be too offended if it turns out that we passed your door and didn’t tell you, or met up with your nemesis and not you, etc.
The tour started yesterday in Essex. Today we are on a train to Eastbourne (which has just divided at Haywards Heath – don’t worry, we made sure we were in the front four carriages).
Further updates to quite possibly follow.
Note to commenters: please be vague if possible.

Hello everyone. Happy Christmas! (I had planned to post this before now, but was prevented from doing so by a glitch – see diagram above, which has little to do with to do with the topic of this post, but it is one of my favourites from the year which I don’t think I’ve made public anywhere.)
Anyway, this is my end of year blog post, which I have a tradition of doing (I did one last year).
2008, brief review of
- It hasn’t really been a very good year on this blog, has it? Looking back at my list of blog posts show that things have declined somewhat.
- In February I started to write the Church Times blog, which has meant that I’ve had less time to devote to this one, but this site has, if truth be told, suffered rather more than I had intended.
- I will remember 2008 as the year of the Lambeth Conference. I was immensely privileged to be asked to be part of it doing my drawings in my medium-sized tent. I still have, if the truth be told, not really recovered.
- Canterbury Press very kindly published My Pew: Things I have seen from it in the summer. Other projects during the year included cartoons for the What am I doing here? book, the Autism and Asperger syndrome guidelines for churches and the Youthwork cartoon series which I hope will be fully revealed shortly.
2009, plans for
- I intend to spend most of January worrying about my tax return.
- The end of February is my deadline for the 2010 Dave Walker Guide to the Church Calendar, so if last year is anything to go by the month will be spent looking out of the window trying to think of ideas for it. (Aside: This years is still available).
- In April we’re going back to Spring Harvest… I know, who would have thought it? Purely as an in-depth reporter you understand, not because I’m turning Evangelical on a closet basis.
- 2009 might turn out to be the year of cartoon canvasses, new greetings cards and the sorting out of shambleses. We shall see. (I’m fully aware that ‘shambleses’ isn’t valid English in most places by the way, but here in my computing office it is a well-understood and appropriate term).
- I’ve no other plans as yet. I think the Bible advises not to make too many. We live in uncertain times, so who knows what will happen, but if I have one resolution it is to try and enjoy myself a bit more doing what I am so fortunate to be doing rather than being so continually anxious about it all.
All best wishes to everyone reading – Happy New Year.
(Posted this time last year, but I doubt anyone will have really noticed.)

About to go live …
Update (Friday): In answer to questions – two short sections were filmed at about 7.20 and 7.35. The main feature was an interview with the Bishop of Kansas, but my tent was used as the backdrop, and my cartoon How Christians can work together across the divide was used to introduce the item. On the second occasion I did a one sentence introduction to the cartoon. I don’t have a link to it online I’m afraid.
The blurb on the sign reads:
Cartoonist in Residence
Cartoonist Dave Walker will be producing daily cartoons based on the events of the conference. The cartoons will appear in this tent and on the conference intranet and Lambeth Conference website.
Some other examples of Dave’s work will be displayed here in the tent in the early days of the conference. Most of these are taken from Dave’s CartoonChurch.com website or the Canterbury Press books ‘The Dave Walker Guide to the Church’ and ‘My Pew – things I have seen from it’.
Dave Walker works as a freelance cartoonist and draws a weekly ‘Guide to the Church’ cartoon for the Church Times along with a blog on the Church Times website. Formerly a church youth worker, Dave started drawing cartoons professionally in 2005 following the publication of his Windsor Report series the previous autumn. Originally from Newport, South Wales, Dave currently lives in Essex. More information about his work can be found on stand E7 in the Marketplace.

…and look what is in it. More details later.
[By the way - I am aware that my blog page does not work well for Internet Explorer users with small screens - the image and all the blog content drops right down to the bottom of the page. This is more likely to happen if I use 500 pixel wide images from Flickr like this one rather than the 400 pixel wide ones I usually stick to for this very reason.
If any CSS wizard can advise me what I can do to stop this happening I would be incredibly grateful. I have spent three years trying to work this out (not continually) and have been unsuccessful thus far]
Update: How does that look to everyone? [Technical aside: I have used overflow: hidden] If nothing looks out of the ordinary that is a good thing.
