Tim Harries has started drawing a new strip for children in The Sun, one of many Procartoonists.org members providing cartoons for the UK’s best-selling paper. Tim told the blog:

“I got a call asking for a strip to run in a kids’ pull-out section of their TV guide during the school holidays. The deadline was tight but I had a family strip in development that I thought was suitable, they liked it and went with it, asking me to make the teenage son the main character. They came up with the title “Adam’s Adventures” – seems as good a title as any! The initial plan was to run for four weeks, but that’s been extended.”

Editorial cartoons in the paper are regularly provided by Steve Bright, Andy Davey and Gary Barker. Click here for an archive of their cartoons. So if you see a cartoon in The Sun, the chances are it was the Procartoonists wot done it.
