Anonymous said: Have you ever drawn Captain Jack's Captain John?!
The last time I drew Captain John was many years ago, so here’s a shiny new version.
(I’ve also added a Captain John sticker to my Redbubble store, in case anyone wants him.)
i think something went wrong
The Ballad of the House of Leg
When Hogwarts was first founded
By the noble Founders Four,
They looked upon their houses
And they asked: “Do we need more?”
"For some are brave, and some are loyal,
As each one of us knows,
And some are cunning, some are smart,
But some are NONE of those!”
"What shall we do with pupils
Who just haven’t got a clue?
Who have no proud distinctive traits
And may well smell of poo?”
"Let’s found another house for them:
A Hogwarts bargain bin.
The entrance code is simple:
If they’ve got a leg, they’re in!”
The cryptofascist Founders
Gave themselves both praise and plaudit
They gave the school the House of Leg
Then basically ignored it.
Thus left alone, the House of Leg
Became a decent place
For aimless wandering, cups of tea
And staring into space
The dull and non-distinctive
Found a quiet place to land on
And in times of trouble, Hogwarts always
Has its Leg to stand on…

I’m delighted that you like the mini Souvenir Programme posse! I’ve now made them available to buy, for you and for anyone else who wants them.
You can choose from a shirt with text on it, a shirt without text on it, a sticker, or a card. I hope this constitutes just enough choice, at least for five minutes…
I’m going to a recording of John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme tonight, so in tribute, here are mini versions of the JFSP gang.
Praise from a spider. I drew this for mums-the-nerd but it’s going out to anyone who needs a bit of appreciation from a diminutive cartoon arachnid.

Gosh, thank you for saying so! I’m now doing this expression, only a teensy bit less sinister.
Let’s be honest, the real question isn’t “To be or not to be?”, it’s what is Benedict’s Hamlet hair going to look like?…
Toupée or not toupée, that is the question –
Whether ‘tis kinder to Ben’s head to suffer
The fronds and flounces of outrageous wiggage,
Or to wield combs against a sea of tangles,
And by diffusing, groom them? To dye, to cut –
How short? – and with this style, to hope we end
The quarrels and the oft-conflicting feels
That fans are prone to? ‘Tis a costume concept
Devoutly to be wished. To dye too dark,
Too light, perchance too red; Why should we fear?
For when he steps on stage, with hair all done,
When he but ruffles up those errant curls,
He’ll make us swoon….
I heard that all the cool kids were coming up with coffeeshop AUs these days so I decided to do the same. I fear I may have misunderstood the central concept, though…
I’m currently working on rounding out my mini-Doctor Who collection with mini-companions, all freshly redrawn for a fancier internet age! Admittedly it’s going to take me a while to work through the full set, but I do plan to get there… eventually.
In the meantime, to prove that I’m making progress, here’s a shiny new mini-Donna. She’ll take a salute, if there’s one on offer. (And you can also buy her as a sticker or card.)
