This was my second (and to date, only other) attempt at rescuing an old and not very good poem by turning it into a strip and so far this is my favourite of all the work I have done. This was originally created and appeared in March 2004.
Since then it has had a little bit of life beyond the www. First of all a friend who still works at the callcentre in question printed it out and took it into work. It was well received there and those who had read it began to say 'Back to the treadmill' at the end of their breaks. His sympathetic boss also saw it and said it was good but to be careful because if any higher management caught somebody reading it they would probably be sacked. I'm quite proud of these wee facts.
Then, last autumn, I entered it into a local (local being Doncaster) open art competition and it was accepted and displayed in the Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery from October last year until January this.
