The Novice is a panel cartoon, which was published each week in a local newspaper. This was an interesting cartoon project, as I don't consider it to be a collection of individual jokes. It is more a series of events that constructs a picture of the "Novice". It celebrates the fun and excitement of getting out and giving it a go.
With a lack of any real talent, coordination or agility, the novice will never quit... For the novice, the joy is not in winning but just making it to the finish line in one piece.
