It’s been a while!

April 25, 2013

Thank you to everyone who continues to drop by my blog, to see and enjoy my cartoons, even though I haven’t done any new ones for a while. There’s still 567 to choose from and it remains my intention to get back to drawing more some day. I have plenty of ideas written down – I think I just suffered from blogger’s fatigue and have headed off on other life projects for some time now.

But the Pet Hates and Pet Peeves themes will forever remain close to my heart (and art!) and I remain encouraged by all the new ‘hits’ and ‘views’ my cartoons are getting.

So thank you!


Back in action.. but slowly!

January 3, 2012

Hello 2012! I’m back, but my previous pace of one per day is more than I think I can or will maintain this year, so I’ll post as I feel inclined and hope to still do at least one per week … not a bad goal after so many over the last 2 years.

After all, I don’t want to (pet) hate doing them!

So here’s to many more laughs in the days, weeks and months ahead!

More breakages!

October 13, 2011

My travel plans have changed and so I now won’t be posting again until the start of 2012. It’s actually quite refreshing to have a break after such a long period of pet-peeving, but I’m sure I’ll get stuck back into them once I get back!

In the meantime, feel free to search your favourite categories (using the drop-down menu on the right side of the screen), and stay happy!

Time for a break!

July 16, 2011

I’m going to be travelling for a while so will post my next pet hate or pet peeve on September 1st 2011. I hope you’ll come back then!



500 pet hates and pet peeves cartoons!

May 15, 2011

Who’d have thought there were so many little irritations in life that I’d still be drawing new cartoons about them?

When I started this blog at the beginning of 2010 my aim was to draw a daily one for a year. I achieved that and was more than delighted with my creative output, and the fact that the more I drew the more the ideas came. And since there’s still lots of ideas written down but not yet drawn, my new goal is to finish a complete second year of them. That’d be 730 pet hate and pet peeves!

Wish me luck!

Pet peeves and famous people

March 31, 2011

A friend recently told me of a quote of Whoopi Goldberg’s, which seems apt for my blog … Whoopi is widely quoted as having said “I don’t have pet peeves, I have whole kennels of irritations” and now that I’m up to my 455th pet hate (or pet peeve) I have to say that I have my own factory that’s producing multiple kennels of irritations (or something like that!)

Happy 2011!

January 1, 2011


Well, I made it through a whole year of creating a daily ‘pet hates’ cartoon and I’m back for more! So the only ‘new leaf’ I’ll be turning over this year is that I’ve decided not to write any introductory comments before the cartoons. They can all speak for themselves, I’m sure.

So here’s to another year of laughter and fun!
