In the month that Nelson Mandela passed away and Fox News’s Megyn Kelly asserted it’s a fact that Jesus was white (when as a Middle Eastern Jew two thousand years ago that was not possible), it’s worth remembering that Jesus would not have had a great time in Apartheid South Africa.

So last Sunday I was invited to talk about cartoons and faith on BBC Radio 4 for their Sunday show callled, not surprisingly, ‘Sunday’. I was joined by Zaineb Latif, a cartoonist who does work for Muslim News. We’d pre-recorded our segment because Zaineb is based in Canada so the time difference made it inconvenient for the live Sunday morning show. Pre-recording also meant our original conversation was longer than the final broadcast segment. It was enjoyable – both Zaineb and the host, William Crawley, were chatty and charming. It also made me long for the days when I was on community radio. Good times. Ahem, but back to this. It’s a fairly serious discussion – light on goofball jokes and “boom!” comedy zingers. So be prepared not to laugh.
You can listen to it on the BBC Website here (skip to the 13:14 mark) for the next seven days:
Or you can listen to that specific segment on Soundcloud.
Did someone run over Quentin Tarentino’s dog? Or steal his favourite car? Because if his recent films (Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds) are anything to go by, Tarentino has revenge on his mind. Read the review here.
One of the highlights of 2012 was having my cartoons translated into German by the United Methodist Church (Evangelisch-methodistischen Kirche) in Switzerland. They used them in their monthly magazine ‘Kirche und Weld’. The editor, the very cool Sigmar Friedrich, sent me some copies which arrived in the mail this week. Gott ist gut!
If laughter is the best medicine, then Adrian Plass and Jeff Lucas are well on their way to earning honorary doctorates in healing through hilarity. With Nicki Rogers singing, it’s a very entertaining evening. Read the review here.
That’s right! It’s a mug. With a cartoon on it. On both sides of the mug. It’s a superb container for coffee or tea. Or even hot chocolate. Or soup. You get the idea.
It’ll make a great Christmas present. Plus if it sells well then I will print more and include other cartoons.
