Witney Weekender

No Sleep til Witney!

The CCGB organised a cartoonists weekend away a while back. I've been meaning to post a few pics and cartoons so here they are.

The weekend was in Witney, near Oxford and included a trip to Wychwood Brewery.

Unfortunately I only took 2 photo's during the whole weekend, and they're pretty bland:

Here's a pic of something that I must have considered fascinating.

Here's a pic of some yeast overflowing. Don't panic, this is quite normal.

Fortunately there were plenty of other cameras present during the weekend:

That's me in the strange hat surrounded by my cartoon mates during the beer tasting. I'm not much of a drinker these days, but they were very generous with the measures and it seemed rude to refuse...

This was also the time to see the 'Are you a Goblin' cartoon competition winners. All the participants drew cartoons on the witchy/goblin theme, with first prize going to Noel Ford.
Here's my entries, all with a 'witchy' flavour ...

After the brewery trip, we took a walk around Witney and found the museum...

In the evening, there was a meal and we had a bit of a musical jam, featuring piano, loads of guitars, egg shakers, a ukulele and a kazoo. It was noisy but extremely fun with plenty of cartooning also going on all night, as can be seen by Clive Goddard's picture of me and bandmates!

Noel, Bren and me wondering if we're all playing the same song.

This is me strumming a guitar while the room turns excessively red.

Thanks Clive, a stunning likeness!

An excellent weekend was had by all. The end.
