Comics and cartooning were always something that held a great sway over me.  A lot of my earliest visual memories seem to involve them one way or the other, be it Batman, Charlie Brown, the Warner Brother mainstays, and so on.  I grew into it, more than out of it, and I'm still as happy to read a good episode of Asterix as I am to read history or literature.  So of course I had to try it myself.  A lot of my paintings are influenced by it - they are essentially graphic, and there is a lot of overlap there, but pure cartooning is another branch - and I have tried it at different times, but not with very convincing results.  I think I like it more than it likes me but here are some examples, taken from a Cretan magazine that I did some work for, many moons ago.   Sorry they are all in Greek.  They're funny, believe me, but no - I'm no Searle or Crumb.

A BLonde Joke.  How original, Steven.   Ahem...  Oh well, it got a few laughs... is it sexist?  Species-ist even?  I'll leave that to be debated amongst the intellectual fringe of my fan base.

Sthv Agora.  (In the Marketplace.)   Actually an old joke, but translated here to the typical Cretan or Greek market.
