The Cattle Raid of Cooley interlude

My brain is tired, so I’m taking this week off from drawing The Cattle Raid of Cooley.  As a substitute, here’s a convention sketch I did some time ago of Fergus reminiscing about the old days, which I recently found while having a clear-out.  I’ve doctored it slightly with some digital Letratone-simulation.

You may also have noticed I’ve added one of those spam-blocker things where you have to type what’s in the graphic before you can leave a comment.  I’m afraid the volume of spam has just got too much for me – I went away to Edinburgh for three days and got back to nearly 1500 comments in my spam box to sort through.  Since 2007 I’ve had 348 comments from people leaving their thoughts on the contents of the site, as opposed to 51,258 robots trying to sell me dodgy pharmaceuticals, all of which I’ve had to trawl through just in case there’s been a legitimate comment thrown in the bin by mistake – and there have been a few.

I really can’t be bothered with it anymore. I hope this won’t be too much of an inconvenience to any of you who actually want to leave comments.
