Chalk & Cheese met Mr. Danders the guinea pig in my strip that was done for Team Cul de Sac. This is a great fundraising effort for Parkinson's disease, in support of Cul de Sac cartoonist Richard Thompson. If you are able, please buy the book or consider making a donation.

Weirdly enough, today's Cul de Sac comic fits my theme perfectly. Enjoy!

YAY! The winner of the C&C art is...

Marya Jansen-Gruber, editor of Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review - this link takes you to an interview that she did with me earlier in the year. Congrats, Marya; the art will be on it's way!

Chalk & Cheese Comics is 1 Year Old!

When I started Chalk & Cheese Comics I had no idea how it would pan out. I didn't realise then that Cheese would become so obsessed with okapis, or adopt the mantle of dark Sith mouse, Cheese Vader. I hadn't envisaged Chalk sitting up holding a book reading; I didn't know that porcupines float. 

At the moment of writing, C&C Comics has had 20,873 page views spread across 41 different countries, which I find amazing and hugely encouraging. Thank you to everyone who shares the strip by word of mouth, email, Twitter, Facebook etc. 

To celebrate I'm giving away this original piece of art - just go to the Chapman & Warnes Giveaways site for details.

Who knows where the next 12 months will take us (certainly not me, as I haven't done Friday's strip yet!)?
