As the clock struck midnight and the fireworks lit the night skies, I was given permission to spend New Year's Eve with the mighty volunteers who act as London's paramedics through the night. They basically deal with the drunk, very drunk and comatose drunk who 'enjoy' welcoming the new year.
Grab the current Private Eye magazine to see the report. Still £1.50!
A recent report showed that more homeless families are being placed in
emergency housing than ever.
Emergency housing usually means Bed & Breakfast hotels or places similar. They might get just one room with shared kitchen and bathroom and they may be stuck there for a year or more despite the recommendation being six weeks max. With thanks to the charity Shelter, I visited and spent a little time with two families. My report is out now in the new Private Eye magazine. Just £1.50 with a super cover....
Plus I hope you can grab a copy of the new Time Out London. It has yet another Musical Tribes character.
I spent the day at the recent London Anarchist Bookfair and made a little report on the really, really busy event. I bumped into my friend and talented comic guy, Alex Potts. He was having a curious wander so I had to include him somewhere!
A big, beautiful, hardback book has hit the shops.
312 pages literally crammed with 50 years worth of cartoons and illustrations and I'm extremely honoured to be included in it pages along with some legendary cartoonists and illustrators.
Please do buy one...
