From getting involved in drawing Tank Girl, to finding new friends....
Well... I saw a photo of someone with a really cool cat hat.... so I rather randomly sent her an email. I'm not in the habit of contacting strangers on the internet.. I leave that for the professional stalkers.
So..... I met up with Lucky Lucy (That's Doctor Lucy, kids), who is a scientist at DEFRA (Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs). We talked about bees, earth house, bio charcoal, and David Attenborough (Best Human ever..tis official)
Lucy's on a one woman mission to get people involved in Ecology,Our World around us, and doing things on a grass root level...even if it's planting flowers in a window box.
I've never met someone with so much enthusiasm, so much, knowledge and such a wonderful empathy for..everything!
Check out her blog...get involved. Now.

The Criminal Justice & Immigration Act 2008 came in to effect in January 2009, and Section 49 of the Coroners and Justice Bill is currently being reviewed. Both of these Acts could impact on the creation of comic books and how they are sold, both have the potential to land innocent people in court, on the sex offender register or in jail. We ask that the PM and the government as a whole respect the concerns of artists, writers, publishers, readers and retailers all over the UK and include a specific clarification in the law that ensures that no innocent comic creators or owners of comics can ever be prosecuted unfairly by a mis interpretation of the current laws.
These laws actually extend to ANY form of image making (paintings, sketches, doodles, etc) and not just the comics media, so EVERYBODY will be effected by it. Basically the government wants to legislate that any DRAWING they deem "inappropriate" is tantamount to the same laws as a photography, thus preventing you or I from DRAWING certain things. If ever there were "thought crime" laws, these are it!
Love and tanks...
