Old boys in a fanciful junkyard, some by circumstance, some by choice. The original 24-panel set, called ‘Tom’s Yard’, was created using coloured markers. It was my intention to digitally rework 8 of these but, so far, I have completed only 2, which are available here with(w) and without(wo) captions.

board meetings? The sandwiches.”

“Arthur, she said, you’re away a lot—I like that in a man.”
