Here is a cartoon I did for the Guardian in back in 2012!  Somehow, it has not become irrelevant since that time.

It always baffled me as a teen to see girls who were so self aware that they dotted their i’s with round circles or hearts. Also, people who make tiny squeaking noises instead of sneezes.

California’s calamitous drought drags on

It’s dry in California - historically dry. Water is in short supply, the air is noticeably without moisture, farms are parched and just look at the photo above of the state’s dwindling snow cover. It pretty much speaks for itself.

Meanwhile, various interests are turning to the political realm to try and ensure they get theirs when it comes to H2O.

And the drought has been particularly harsh on agriculture:

Ranchers have begun liquidating herds. Growers are considering tearing out thirsty tree crops such as nut orchards and citrus groves. And tens of thousands of additional acres of prime California soil could go unplanted if farmers don’t get enough water to irrigate them.

Read more on the drought’s effect on California here.

This is getting pretty scary. The big river where I ride my bike is almost completely dried in some places, stinking of dead fish and rot. Our big local lake, which was already low last year,  is now so low that you can walk across the lake bed in some areas. We were flying back home  from vacation last week, and there was hardly any snow on any of the mountains, and all the lakes and rivers were visibly, scarily low. We’ve had droughts in the past, but I don’t remember it being this bad before. 

PS, From what I can tell, our drought sounds like it’s connected to all the unusually cold and icy weather in the east coast of the US. A high pressure system, caused by abnormal high water temperatures off the west coast, pushed all of the west coast’s usual storm systems up north where they then hurled down all their moisture in the form of freezing ice and snow on the rest of the country. It’s been crappy for everyone. 

It starts

This elderly couple took a photo in their small garden outside their house for every season of the year, come rain, snow or shine.

They stood in the same spot for every season and showed off their beautiful little garden, which they were obviously very proud of.

I’m mesmerized by these wonderful pictures.  Many emotions to be felt.

Tears forever.

Sheen by Greg Coulton

"After producing ‘Mortlake’ a few of my neighbours in the nearby suburb of ‘Sheen’ asked if I could produce something for them.
The piece is a historical celebration of the area, featuring details and iconography to depict its illustrious past.”
