Captain Certain


I was asked by the BBC to create a satirical superhero style strip, chronicling the fortunes and misfortunes of Gordon Brown. For those less familiar with British politics Brown had a very successful honeymoon period with the electorate, but both his and the government's standing in the polls have plummeted since last autumn, following his failure to call a general election when he had obviously been intending to do so. I thought I’d post the frames here, one at a time in a form of blog serial, so tune in next time for the next instalment..

I've been very naughty and used one of the images on my blog today. It is an excellent creation from your very imaginative mind. This does not excuse you from day to day chores though. Even celebs must put the bin out for collection.
