2017 was not such a productive year on the cartooning front. I was busy with work early in the year and there seems to be a large blank period where my mind was empty and my notebook contains no drawings! There was a brief flurry of activity late in the year as I sent off some cartoon cards to Federal politicians over the Adani Coal Mine issue, but that was about it.
This cartoon was produced in a final moment of defeatism. It kind of summarised my year, feeling small and somewhat trapped. For the uninitiated, that is a sample vial for Lab analysis, and stands about 2cm tall. I use them all the time.
It now graces the laboratory door and a few of the staff have commented on its visual accuracy. As for psychological accuracy they haven't commented.
Happy new year.
