My book about my dog, Scrabble has been out in the wild for nearly a year now. The book is called Mike&Scrabble and it’s a guide to owning a slightly faulty Human (that’s me) and it happened by a happy accident. I started making these pictures to try to understand why on earth I had got myself a dog, I shared them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and somehow they were spotted by a publisher, who wrote to my dog and offered a publishing contract. The book is on sale here and in all good book shops around the world – which is a lovely thought, and I recently finished a second set of cartoons for Mike&ScrabbleToo – the difficult second album.
This image has been very popular with Mike&Scrabble followers, I think it's because it sums up the relationship between a rescued dog and a rescued human. This is the first of my new 315mm x 315mm canvas prints, stretched over a 20mm frame.
