Thank you again for your interest in Joy of Cartoon Pictures. I hope that you have had a good start to 2012.

I thought that I'd start off this year's cartoons with a picture with a bit of 'get up and go about it'.

I've always been a fan of the Jaguar E-type, and as I've been drawing a lot of Greyhounds recently, I thought I'd put the two together. To contrast the shape and speed of the Jaguar I put the bubble car in and turned it into a police car.

I originally thought about having the greyhounds in the Jaguar and the rabbits in the bubble car but I thought that it was more interesting to switch them around.

The second picture also features a Greyhound. This picture came about when my friend told me about his Italian Greyhound's habit of sitting in the afternoon sun and following it around the room. I thought that this was very cat-like behaviour and so I worked a disgruntled looking cat into the picture.

Greyhounds will be making further appearances during the year, along with various other breeds and plenty of cats as well.

Anyway, here's to a good year.
