We came up with the 'Broon-ites' comic strip for Private Eye, which has been running in the magazine for two years. It's a rough parody on the popular 'Broons' strip which appears in the Sunday Post. For the development of the strip we were lucky enough to be paired up with excellent artist Henry Davies, who illustrated the official 'Broons' on occasions, as well as many popular comic strip characters such as 'Dennis the Menace' and 'Desperate Dan. His website is here.
It's a lot of fun to do. The best part is getting all the indignant letters from North Of The Border telling us how to write the scottish slang! Hoots!
Dig For Libtory
We were keen to carry on working with Henry Davies in the Post-Gordon Brown era, hence 'Dig For Libtory'. It's a spoof on wartime progaganda designed to mock the Conservative/LibDem's old-fashioned message on pulling together and austerity for all (apart for a select few, of course).
