Daily Rowson #7: Out and proud

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

For today's Martin Rowson cartoon, here's the most controversial cover image we've run to date, which led to accusations of homophobia, as well as a great many cries of "how dare you" with regards to mocking Richard Dawkins (and I think lots of people just objected to the Hitch's belly too). As Martin pointed out at the auction on Tuesday when this piece was sold, it's a reminder that not only the religious take offence when the images and names of their figureheads are taken in vain.

Remember, our exhibition of Martin's work is open at the Menier Gallery in Southwark every day from 10am-6pm, until Saturday when it closes at 4pm. There's the opportunity to buy any as-yet unsold works too.
