Match of the Day comic strips

I've been drawing a weekly comic strip for the BBC magazine Match of the Day for several years now.
There are advantages and disadvantages with doing a regular weekly spot somewhere. What I like about it is that it's a regular income which in these lean times is great and this particular strip involves drawing lots of different caricatures every week. I love that. The disadvantage is that because this strip is topical and about what's happening in British football at the time, it means that I can't draw a few weeks ahead in order to have a nice long holiday. So- pros and cons but it's great to have a little bit of security in the increasingly difficult world of illustration. Here are a few recent examples. There are no words cos the balloons are put on by the staff at the mag.
