April’s Jitterati for FishHead

No Comments

This is for the bridal feature… which (in late February) I’m assuming is a cinch for the cover. Plus, first time in ages all three of them have been in the same episode.

UPDATE: Nope, they put the Bresolin Brothers (one with an enormous moustache) on the cover instead. Them’s the breaks when you’re working six weeks ahead.


New Zealand according to Google Autocomplete



I got the idea for this from an io9 post which shows a map of the USA with each state labelled with whatever comes up when you type “Why is [state name] so…” into Google. I had to change it to “Why is [place name…” because otherwise NOTHING comes up for most New Zealand towns.

Only two of the results aren’t New Zealand specific, which is impressive when you consider that all our English place names are second-hand.


January’s Jitterati for FishHead

December’s cartoon has been uploaded as well – click < previous to view. I can’t keep track of these advance print deadlines (drawn up to two months before publication!), and the online cartoon might as well match the print edition.

The themes for January included summer reading and Red Rocks. The attitude of the seals may owe something to Dan Clemerson-Phillips’ Alpaca Metropolitan.
