Ha ha, hadn't realised that the non-disabled character looked as though he was sinking into the mire Isha. Although like someone once commented, my cartoons are like onions - multi-layered. Someone then had to jump in with "Yeh, Dave's cartoons make me cry too!" (Seem to remember it was that parcel of rogues down at Southampton CIL where I was running a workshop with Jeni!)

Well done Colin, good job.

I find your cartoon very pleasing Dave. I particularly like the fact that the non-wheelchair user is sinking gradually into the mire.
