No refunds. No complaints. No exchanges. Please use the nearest exit...

I've drawn political cartoons before, for various publications, exhibitions, etc, but always had trouble sitting before a photo or TV footage or (shudder) seeing those bastards in the flesh. I have to swallow the bile rising in my throat when I look at a politician.
So, here we go with another HPL inspired "monster" cartoon and the use of a bit of cartoon visual metaphor.
NB This was going to be in colour, but I fucked the arm up on the main character. Thank you for not noticing...

It's Monsters & Marker pens in this week's offerings from the Filthy Moods Metaphorical Stable for Lame Excuses, not just because monsters are "easier" to draw, but to make the most of our finely tuned sophisticated humour, and well-balanced world view that you've come to expect from this learned Blog.
So, if you want to know what the guy in the detail below is lookin' at, and what's slithered off the end of my pen over the last day or two, then scroll downwards... You know the drill!

Welcome to the Filthy Moods Yard Sale for Thrifty Viewers... Just a grubby handful of sketches this time round...
This one was meant to be something else when I drew the girls face (I just start in ink with no idea what the sketches are going to be) and it turned into this.
Below is the "colour scan" which may or may not have more visual merit...
And while I'm here, check out my Steve Gibson Cartoonist/Writer page on Facebook !

Another ponder on Evolution...
C'mon, I ain't no "scientifical" person neither, but... But, somethin' somewhere, back in the dim ol' Pre-historical days, snuck in an' jerked off in our gene pool to kick-start this whole fuckin' thing...
Am I right?
Huh? Am I?
Uh... You guys still there???
Jeez! I try an' sound serious an' all you want is the "dirty Pitchurs"..!

Well, here we are with another enthusiastic, if meager offering of sketches.
Have a scroll downwards (You know the routine by now...) and hopefully you'll find something to give those tired ol' eyeballs and dwindling brain cells a bit of a jolt..!
Thank you for ogling.

It's true! Here at the Filthy Moods Combo Catwalk & Clothing Clinic we don't just churn out gratuitous renderings of naked ladies, chubby chumps and useless monsters for cheap laughs for viewers who should know better (That's not you of course. I know that you have good taste and also respect my sincerity...)
Nope. We also take our social responsibilities seriously, and feel obliged to give sound and sensible advice. Thank you for listening. Please collect your pants over by the exit and visit us again soon for more illuminating, yet tasteful educational material ...

Yes, here at Filthy Moods we sure don't shirk from the big questions in life. No, sir! And c'mon, when was the last time that you saw a duck in a church? Huh? Huh?
Or maybe they're a different denomination and go there weekdays... How the hell would I know???

A publisher wrote to me the other day, who has translated some of my comic strips and asked what "Smeebo" means, because he couldn't translate it into Italian. I explained that it was just a nonsense word I had made up and stuck in some of my cartoons to amuse you guys (Yes, you!)
I drew this (unfinished) sketch in my sketchbook the other day...
