overwhelmed by pudding

I drew this comic way too fast, but Stuart's pear and ginger brioche pudding this evening needed commemorating. (Stuart and Vern are so alike that they are very often interchangeable.)

And here is Stuart with his marvellous creation:

This weekend has been comics bliss! Not only did Garen Ewing give me a copy of one of his earlier works, The Tempest, but 68 pages of DFC comics goodness dropped through the letterbox in the form of the Christmas Bumper Issue!
We got a great wrap-around Dave Shelton cover, and he also treated us to a six-page full Good Dog Bad Dog adventure, Christmas in Muttropolis. Hooray, Dave!

And wonderfully, and also sadly, Woodrow Phoenix's brilliant Donny Digits, in the Guardian Family section comic, came to its brilliant firework conclusion on Saturday. I am really going to miss it!

Very true! We artists need tasty sustenance. :-)

I hope I get a DFC subscription for christmas!

Also, cooking is one of those things where I am incredibly envious of people who can do them, like playing a musical instrument or speaking other languages

Or working from home and not spending the entire day watching films and perusing the internet

Stuart hasn't done much baking so this was a proud moment for him! About watching films, I've had to make sure I never own a television, but the computer is still a potential danger zone.

hmmm, pudding! (drools like Homer!)
What a nice husband you have and what a wonderful cartoon :-)

Thank you! I will have to try very hard not to eat the remains out of the fridge for breakfast. Must leave some for this evening [makes vow to self].

I hope to read DFC one of these days / it looks cool!
You are a very lucky woman. That pudding looks coma-inducingly good. And your comic is sweet!

Very lucky, Stuart is a keeper! :-) I love the snow updates on your blog, I wonder if we are going to get any snow in London this year. I used to think the climate here is exactly like Seattle, but I think London gets even less snow. But perhaps it's just the city, often it's a degree or two colder as soon as you get out of London.

hee hee!
I am amused by the idea that you are secretly Vern & Lettuce at home. And that pudding does look amazing!

We got to read the DFC yesterday round at my nephew's - insurance in case it doesn't arrive this morning before we go. We were both absolutely glued to it, and snickering at bits while conversation happened around us! I think my relatives were amused and impressed.

Finally got to ask Lucas what his faves are - but I think he understood / replied as if I'd meant the faves of that issue. He likes Laura Howell's The Mighty M, which I really like too, but they're taking a bunch of issues away with them over Christmas so he will get a chance to re-read through them then.

Re: hee hee!
Hooray, I'm glad you got to see it (even if yours didn't arrive)!

Wait Leuttice draws your comics!? My world is rocked that slave labour... animal cruelty.... although that pudding does look awesome..

Haha... and she's SUCH a whinger! Tries to insist on things like normal bedtimes and someone to make her frequent cups of tea. Silly rabbit.

Looks like she might be getting RSI in her paw, though, so maybe I'll try my own hand at comics one of these days. (Please don't report me to PETA.)

It's good to draw 'too fast' sometimes! I like the difference in line quality you can achieve!
I'm planning on doing an entire mini-comic by inking 'too fast'!

If you've got any leftover pears, try a Pear Bellini.

Sounds yummy! And I DO have some prosecco... hmm.
