Crashing Wall St.

What with the ongoing occupation of New York's financial district, and City traders coming out from under their gilded rocks in full candour - Frank thought it about time to break out the D-locks and superglue again

All gone very quiet, hasn't it.

Apologies to anyone who may inadvertently stumble across this site with a vague expectation of cartoony goodness. It's all gone very quiet of late. I am currently of the opinion that Frank's shenanegans are somewhat counter productive and am only doing the odd strip when directly requested. Preaching to the choir is all very well, in a narcissistic kind of way, but it doesn't seem to spread anything positive, which is what is so desperately needed in a culture obsessed with happy-ever-afters and consumable frivolity. . Frank has little positive to say - as he is a curmudgeonly old bastard hard-wired to diss the "opposition". Shame on him. Much as I enjoy being a cantankerous, nay-saying arse, I am currently exploring other avenues and will return once these alternatives blow up in my face and force me to re-engage with the the old git. Should anyone have any suggestions for directions Frank might take away from the cul-de-sac he has engineered for himself, please feel free to comment. Forgive me for not holding my breath in the meantime. But please, do...

NEW Transition Strip. (an ongoing thread)

This post started as the first 4 (but I have added more as time goes by) of a new series of strips I've put together for the Transition Network. They will be loosely exploring some of the Holmgren and Chamberlain transition scenarios through my usual combination of toilet humour and sarcasm. Those already familiar with the back story of Gort and Klaatu from the New Internationalist may recognise the odd recycled gag.

Please visit the Transition Network website and take some time to look around some of the many Transition initiatives being grown around the world.

My thanks to Ben Brangwyn and Rob Hopkins for their input and patience .

I'll be posting these under the tag "Transition".

This stream has come to a premature end due to some unravelling at my end. Sorry about this, - particular apologies to Ben and Rob.
