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!)?
