Twitter Laughs in the Face of GDPR Regulation 18 Mar 2020
Image credit: funsubstance.com One morning at the beginning of January, I opened my @stiobhart Twitter account as usual for a quick peruse of what was happening in 'The Inconsequentialverse' and was surprised to see an alert popping up which said "Your account is suspended and not permitted to perform this action". As the only "action" I was 'performing' was clicking on the various 'News', 'Trending' etc, tabs to see what was going on in the world, I thought it was just one of those glitches in the matrix....

2nd November 2019 Cartoon Roundup 02 Nov 2019
Here’s another one of my occasional 'Cartoon Roundups', wherein I treat my vast readership to a motley mélange of miserable daubs, which I’ve produced over the previous few weeks or months and which aren’t fileable under any other collection. 06th April 2019 An artist’s rendition of whichever horse I’ve backed on any year, arriving for the start of the Grand National. 21st April 2019 At this special time of year, I think it’s important to remember those who don’t subscribe to the universally held orthodoxy....

Get Ready for Brexit --Spoof Poster Competition 12 Oct 2019
The campaign group "Led by Donkeys" organised a competition on Twitter for folks to come up with their own spoof versions of the UK Government’s risible "Get Ready for Brexit" poster campaign. I thought I’d give it a whirl and submitted a few versions. [The last couple were ones I had floating around in my noggin and worked up after the compo finished]. [It’s a slideshow. So click on the thumbnail and use your arrow keys to navigate —or swipe, if you’re on mobile]... [ Read More ]

#PortraitChallenge 30 Jan 2019
Around the end of July, I came across an account on Twatter called @StudioTeaBreak who set a number of artistic challenges throughout the week, for folks to have a go at. One that took my fancy was one they call #PortraitChallenge whereby, every Thursday, @StudioTeaBreak post a famous [or not so famous] painting, sculpture or whatever which could be considered a "portrait" and then, anyone who fancies a go at it either copies the portrait or produces their own interpretation of it....

Society6 Steals From Artists 05 Nov 2018
Original image credit: Atlas Obscura The Print-on-Demand T&C Minefield Over the years that I’ve been hawking my artistic pussy via a number of online Print-on-Demand sites, I’ve had the occasional run in with the legal teams running the sites. It’s all to easy to accidentally infringe one of their terms and conditions as they all have various rules and regulations as to what they will and will not allow; Adult themes, Copyright infringement, Offensive material, Objectionable content, Similarity to existing designs, etc....

17th July 2018 Cartoon Roundup 17 Jul 2018
A couple of random other cartoons [and a bit of Photoshop fun] which I managed to squirt out in the middle of my World Cup Cartoons marathon. 10th July 2018 More Brexit-related fun for all the family, as various cabinet ministers 'spit the dummy' over concerns that the whole fiasco might not be enough of a clusterfuck yet. 11th July 2018 Cod-faced fuckwitt Michael Gove announces plans to ban Wood-Burning Stoves as a way of combatting Climate Change....

World Cup 2018 Cartoons 16 Jul 2018
In one of my habitual 'Moments of Madness' I resolved to draw a one-frame gag cartoon every day for the duration of the World Cup…​ well, every day there was a match! Needless to say, after barely a week, this became a tedious chore. Not helped by the twin facts that: A: I’m not interested in football, at all B: I miscalculated the length of the tournament and thought it only lasted a fortnight... [ Read More ]
National Selfie Day 21 Jun 2018
According to the Twitterati, today was "National Selfie Day". Because it’s always "National <fucking something > Day" on Twatter —and people definitely need more encouragement to fill the internets up with vacuous pouting orange-faced selfies. But still. If you can’t beat 'em, join 'em. So here is my contribution to the Exhibition of Egoism. First of all, one I found in an old sketchbook from 20 odd years ago.... [ Read More ]
GDPR 25 May 2018
In accordance with the new EU GDPR data protection legislation, Them’s Good Broth would like to assure visitors to this site that we collect no personally identifying information from you —apart from randomly sampling the horrendous flatulence blasting from your ragged tea towel holder and billowing in foetid green clouds around your keyboard-hunched carcass.

Introducing ReCRAPTCHA 14 Jan 2018
I dunno about the rest of you, but I’m getting heartily sick of those irritating "I’m not a robot" reCAPTCHA tests, which seem to be cropping up with more and more frequency on the intarwebs, of late. On almost every site on which I have to complete some kind of form, I’m forced to present my corporeal credentials by clicking my way through at least one —and more often two or three— screens full of those damned things, before I can proceed....
