New Cartoon Commission: The Diesel Wizard!

Narrowboat cartoon commission

So, here’s my latest cartoon commission. Jeanette Freynet is a web designer and a narrowboating friend of mine, and she has been working on a new website for a marine engineer, known as The Diesel Wizard. Mark Stevenson-Wood operates along the Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Trent and Mersey and Staffordshire and Worcester canals, he has 35 years engineering experience, lives aboard and likes purple.


I love drawing cartoons because it’s quick, easy and fun. I’ve done it since I was at school, where I did cartoons of my friends. I tried doing watercolour classes recently, and got good feedback about my paintings, but I just don’t seem to have the patience to work for so long on one picture. It reminds me of Paul Birtill’s poem about being a poet. I think I must be a work-shy artist!

Work-Shy Writer

You get lazy people
in any field, I write poems
instead of novels. You start
at nine and finish at half
past and have the rest of
the day to yourself. Money’s
crap though.

Paul Birtill, 1998
