My Peculiar World

This is a series of autobiographical comic strips i do. They’re published every Friday on the back of The Guardian’s G2 section. I upload them here every Sunday (10 days after they were in G2) in case you missed them. My very first strips are at the bottom and my newest at the top. Pen and pencil on paper and a wee bit of photoshopping. © Karrie Fransman 2008.

    Wonderful cartoon today. Our 3 children went to Woodcraft – and you got the reason spot on.

    Cheers for the Woodcraft Folk strip today – I can show it to people and prove I didn’t make it up!

    PS – I never wanted to be in a single sex group and swear my allegiance to the queen or God, mostly because other girls were boring and mean. Our Woodcraft Folk group did have a uniform shirt for special events and to sew badges on to.

    Just to say a big thank you for last thursdays (15/8/08) cartoon, it just so happened that about 800 woodcrafers from over the country and internation delegates were on a camp at that time, and news about your cartoon spread quickly, however it was only when i got home i saw it as there were very few copies around. anyway whatever your views on the woodcraft folk are its always good to get a mention in a national newspaper, thanks again 🙂

    I LOVED your Woodcraft comic strip last Friday! I also went to Woodcraft Folk when I was little, and my dad jokes that the parent figure at the end is him because it’s exactly what he would have said. Although I never wanted to go to Brownies 😀

    Absolutely uncanny!

    Thanks for the Woodcraft cartoon I have passed it on to both my daughters who went to Woodcraft Folk for just those reasons (on my part and theirs) It made us all laugh.

    These are wonderful, Karrie! I am glad you put them online so I can read them from the Americas.

    Lots of love!

    Dear Karrie

    Last Friday’s strip cartoon had me crying with laughter. The cheerful grin on the face of the doctor, the “a tad uncomfortable” – at least you didn’t add the usual “try to relax”. As if you can relax when that is being done to you.

    Thank you so much – keep it up, I love the cartoons.

    I like the way your brain works. It’s wired funny.

    The orange lady strip had me in stitches. Keep living the dream of a ten-year-old!
