New Blog Header..

Each year I change the blog header and try to do something different...
The blog is called Cartoonmans blog, but regular visitors will know that there are very few cartoons on the blog....thats not to say I don't draw them,I do, but usually as commissioned pieces and not for my blog.
So where is all this leading...I hear you ask...dont I ?
well you will notice that the new header invites you to enjoy the Art of John Fisher..(thats me) which will encompass all the drawing I do.
I hope you will enjoy visiting in 2014 and thank you for your continued support.....

Happy Christmas..

I want to wish everyone who has visited my blog a very happy Christmas...and to those who have taken the time to comment on my work ..thank you very much it is very much appreciated..

Steve Prescott..M.B.E....R.I.P

Steve was a rugby league player ..who played for his home town team St Helens...he was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer seven years ago.Instead of sitting around doing nothing ,Steve set up the Steve Prescott Foundation  to raise money for cancer research and rugby league.
He set himself and completed so many challenges that he astounded everyone and raised half a million pounds.....no mean fete for someone battling cancer.
Sadly on Saturday 9th November Steve passed away..but he will always be remembered both here in St Helens across the whole rugby league community , the sporting world and the world in general...a real Superman...
