One of the 10 golden rules of cartooning is to make cartoons that don’t need explaining. Well, with good intent I assumed spanner crabs were common across the globe, but I discovered that they are predominantly found in the warmer parts of Australia.

I’m not sure why they call it the spanner crab, as it’s claws aren’t very spanner like. It lives in shallow sandy sea waters and hides itself under the sand. With only its eyes and mouth popping above the sand, it patiently waits for any small fish to unsuspectingly pass by.

Anyway, back to those golden rules. I’m assuming there are 10, but haven’t tried to create a list. Any ideas for 2 – 10?

Second time lucky?

Well, no – not for me, but don’t worry – lucky for you!

This is a self indulgent trip down memory lane showing the three cartoons I submitted into the 40th Piracicaba International humor festival (but I posted them first here on this website for you all to enjoy!).  You may recall, my first modest submission two years ago (if not, take a peak here).

Well, here are my 2013 entries (maybe Brazilians don’t get Aussie humour).  And they all come with bonus Portuguese captions too!
