I was asked to contribute to the Dandy 2022 annual, specifically Jocks & Geordies. This is a strip I wasn’t familiar with, but apparently has been around for decades, and is essentially a group of Scottish kids, who hate another group of kids from New Castle. Whenever they meet up, comedy (and fisticuffs) ensue. Oddly, despite being around for so long, specific names haven’t been assigned for a portion of the characters.

One of the fun things about the Dandy is that the titles are drawn in, rather than just typeset. I tried to include elements from the stories in them to help them stand out a little more.

The Jocks remind me of Andy Capp for obvious reasons.
