Some parts of the internet are just awful, little breeding pits for spite and horror. But then, you find those gems, those people or accounts who are just smart, supportive, informative, or plain old silly.
You may know of the Museum of English Rural Life as the twitter account where the staff, being allowed to have some fun, ended up with an absolute unit of a sheep go viral. It was unusual to say the least. The Mary Rose twitter people are also allowed some leeway for levity, bringing personality to their account. Attendant's VIew, urm, does what it likes, there's no managerial oversight here, just me spouting nonsense and ocassinally getting insenced at things.
Fine folks, let me take you on a journey with The Mary Rose...
I'm not gone, just kind of busy, and also a bit demotivated... which is why the website has been without a new blog since the end of January, and I'm struggling to draw cartoons.
Because "They're cutting our funding again/the trustees are arguing with the council/staff have had to go on strike to be heard." are just not things I want to put to paper. Perhaps I really should (you folks have previously said very much yes to my creating cartoons about the crap side of things, such as this one here)
I may dig into my stash of amusing and adorable and positive things, and get some warm and fuzzy cartoons done - Heck, a bit of cheer can't hurt to remind us why we all do what we do. 🌈
As ever, a reminder that you can drop me your real life incidents by message here, or on social media and I will keep things confidential, and change as many details as you think appropriate in any cartoons drawn. (or flat out draw you as you in that situation, if you want me to!)
Webcomic and occasional blog about the heritage sector.
