Readers I know this is a cartoon of a dangerous act balancing a teapot and pouring a brew into a cup balanced on my arm. But I actually did this, I was trained by David Carradine to do this and walk on rice paper. Just don't copy this dangerous pass time. Other news it was freezing this morning out on my bike. There was frost and everything I even stuffed Monday's copy of the Metro down my jersey for a layer of insulation. Don't laugh they do it in the Tour de france only the newspaper is French.

Sunday evening and I've been cooked up Pheasant and Chips; Now Jamie Oliver and his Ministry of Food campaign didn't rustle that dish up. I don't believe Nigella has this dish in her new cook book either doing the rounds currently with all the other cook books for christmas. Pheasant and Chips readers?
Early this morning I've been interested in the art direction with some press ads for the brand with the crocodile. Lovely women in some interesting scarfs and jumpers; it looks like Wham's last christmas pop video on acid or summet. Or maybe thats just me taking the description to far. I've concluded track four "Everybody Knows" is a winner on the new John Legend album. At the time of writing this Ive had 5 cups of tea at 9.15 am. I shall be out on my bike for a ride later on.

Here you have a collection of strange dudes that have been regurgitated from my Doncaster bred mind whilst sipping a hot drink for arguments sake "Tea"; on an October morning whilst most are tucked up in bed with a deluxe duvet once bought on a slack Bank holiday monday after digesting the movie Digby the Biggest dog in the world a year or so back.

Today I just feel knackered but managed 14 miles on the bike in the wind in lycra. I think its gonna be a long week ahead. Peppered with more Guy and Madonna headlines and credit crunch dialogue and daniel craig 007 imagery in the media. At least I've got another Bukowski book to read plus tea bags.

Its a saturday evening I cannot be bothered with Brucie and his ball room dancing on the Beeb. I thought I'd do some emails and just potter online. Perhaps shop online for the GI- joe with the kung fu grip as a present to myself. With my GI- joe I'll arm wrestle anyone that mentions the credit crunch. Or I could just mention cycling in the dark requires a good set of lights on your bike to be safe. This blog entry was not brought to you by the Doncaster Borough Council nor was it scripted whilst I sat in a high vis jacket with a red top close by.

Today I was up early doors over to Bolton to collect some posters I've had done they look alreet readers. On the way I bumped into Mr Lee Ford. I bored someone on the train home to Donny from Manchester to Sheffield I'm sure with my conversation. I finally finished reading the Russell Brand biography on the way over to Bolton. The sun has been out. Ive had at least five cups of tea at the time of writing. Im almost worn out this week.

Today readers I went to Newcastle and checked the Baltic and works by David Shrigley some interesting sculpture on offer; from the man that delivers some clever and often absurd drawings. I have to admit I scoffed two cheese and onion pasties trekking round this fine city. I saw some great works in the Lazarides gallery, May'68 Posters from the student riots political propaganda posters made during a time of unemployment and poverty across the country.

Today, my train trip over to Salford was delayed thanks to some folk nicking cables and signal equipment from the train tracks to weigh in for cash. Stood in Swinton at 8.15 am listening to Gary Barlow singing the first play of Greatest Day on my telefunken on radio 1? It wasn't the Greatest start to the day readers all the mucking about bus and train hopping to get over to Manchester.

A while back I read a bit of script that Tea ladies were on the comeback although the credit crunch may have put the stop to this little resurgence. Readers I don't normally do this but here is an image 80 percent finished. Its probably one of my favourite images I've produced in a long, long, long time. When Im making mega money I'll have a tea lady.
Here you go readers another little dude complete with yellow rubber gloves I guess. Now we all remember where we were on the 9th of September 2008 when Lance Armstrong announced he was coming out of retirement, No oh well? But tomorrow where will you be at the time of 8.15 am where Im led to believe the Lads are back with a world first play of a new track on major radio stations. Are we even bothered?

I guess some readers to this blog will be attending Halloween parties? frankly this doodler hasn't been invited to any yet. But here is a halloween image by me as a reminder this event is looming. This was produced was listening to John Legend two cups of tea were supped in the production of this image. No biscuits were consumed in the making of this image.
Readers here is a Zoo keeper of sorts; with these strange creatures he clearly is in demand attending to this bunch. This morning I digested an episode of Postman Pat special delivery; in this bunch of episodes he has a helicopter, a mobile telefunken and loads of extras. Its good stuff.

Early this morning cycling in the dark working on my fitness levels I was rethinking some imagery I'm putting together. Thats the great thing with cycling its great for thinking things through and gathering inspiration on the move. Finish the ride with a brew your made up for the day.

Hello readers yesterday I was over at Salford uni, working with students I look forward to next week where hopefully there will be a stack of work by the students. Of course next week I'll be closer to being 30 and just that little bit more unsettled. Other news I keep finding my garments with holes in which is not good.
