The Tidy Arms

The Tidy Arms is a wonderful collection of some of Bill’s best known cartoon characters including family members and the odd enemy of Bill’s most famous cartoon strip The Fosdyke Saga which ran in the Daily Mirror from March 1971 to February 1985. The Cloggies are there thundering through the crowd dancing away and causing the usual Mayhem. The strip ran in Private Eye from 1967 to 1981 and later in the Listener from 1985 – 1986. CAMRA’s Real Ale champion Kegbuster is there live from his strip which has been running since 1974 and is still going strong. And then there are the folk who appear in some of his greatest one off cartoons like Noah who is convinced sending elephant is better than sending a dove, St Francis and his robin and probably the most famous character of all, the Polar Bear from his iconic Iceberg gag. With Bill’s love of real ale and his local pub the Rose and Crown, he feels the Tidy Arms had to be the place where all of his oddball characters met up. This is the first limited edition print Bill has ever done for himself and has thoroughly enjoyed doing it. Drawn in October 2017. It went on sale November 9th 2017.  And because he couldn’t include everyone he hopes to produce another one within the year so he can add all the others.
