Cartoons as featured in Typical Errors in English, advertising, and others

I have produced several recent cartoons: many were created for the book Typical Errors in English. Some have been commissioned by advertisers, and some others which didn't make any finished product, but I like them anyway. So have a look, have a smile, and if you would like to learn more, please contact me!

This is a cartoon that was originally drawn for Typical Errors in English, but the unit it introduced had little to do with errors. It's likely, however, to make an appearance on the website.

I liked this cartoon of Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a well-known controversial politician in Poland and former prime minister. It was originally going in Typical Errors in English, but the publishers felt that nobody outside Poland would really know who he was. He has since been replaced by the more recognisable Lech Walesa in the book.

From, for those who still have trouble understanding what exactly is a, an and the.

Now I thought this was funny. Unfortunately only one other person has openly laughed at the joke - clearly it's on another academic level :-)

Author, cartoonist, language instructor, English text proofing, and a definite sense of humour
