"Damned" is published!

I've a confession to make: I published my new comic yesterday by mistake. Ha ha. Oh dear! To be fair, I reckon I was pretty close to signing it off anyway. Publish and be damned!


"Damned" marks the 5th installment of the Bad Moon saga.

All of the comics are available in all the usual eBook outlets for free. Damned can be found on Lulu right now, and I'm sure it will be available from the other outlets within a month or so.

If you get the chance to read any of my comics, please drop me a comment or a review; I love to hear feedback,.. good or bad.

How to restore a washboard

The past couple of weekends have been spent cleaning up a washboard I bought and had shipped over from America.


Here's the washboard as it arrived. It's a pretty basic design: a wooden frame, holding some corrugated brass. It's obviously seen a lot of use; There is soap and remnants of fabric ingrained and caught in the holes. The wood itself is dented and worn, exposing a raised grain. The nails holding it together have rusted. The brass is tarnished and dull.

I love it!
