So, I knew that one day, the time would come when I would have to draw a sports-related cartoon for the Mercury. My initial cartoon idea - on political issues - was rejected and the editor recommended that I do something about the Tigers looking like they'll win the shield.
I had a vague notion that he was talking about some sort of sports thing. After some quick google searching, I figured out that the Tigers are Tasmania's cricket team. And the shield is the Sheffield Shield.
Strangely enough, I'm really happy with how this cartoon turned out. I allowed myself to be a bit messy to reflect the excitement and wildness of the tigers in the crowd.
