Charlie Dandelion

I’ve decided this year I’m going to put the serious stuff on hold and draw something silly and, hopefully, funny. I’m calling the main character Charlie Dandelion; Dandelion because his massive ‘fro and skinny body makes him look like one, and Charlie because of what happened last week in Paris. It’s not meant as a response to that, because any response I make will be, I think, meaningless next to the horror of what happened. Some people drew some pictures, and they were murdered for it.

I didn’t even like the original pictures; I can see why they did them, and respect their motives, but I didn’t like the pictures. But when men with guns try to censor the world, there’s only one side to take, and that’s Charlie’s, so I’m calling my character Charlie in a small act of solidarity with them.

Other than that, there’s a snow leopard in it, and aliens, and, unusually for me, I already know where the story is going, and how the first episode will end, so I might even finish it…
