Crippen Hoops cartoon - 3rd December 07

Zoom in to this image and read text description

I’ve created several cartoons around this theme over the past several months or so, and this idea came to me as I was looking at some old sketches I’d done of crips having to jump through the proverbial hoops in order to get anywhere. Even though I say so myself, I think the use of the Olympic hoops in this context says it all at the moment!

Incidentally, I’ve now got six new e-books up on the Crippen web site as well as a cartoon calendar. The books cover everything from the Social Model to sex (thought that would get your attention!). Let me know what you think if you decide to indulge yourselves.
