I'd never treat fans as mugs, but now you can buy a ceramic mug featuring my 1998 cartoon The Seven Ages of Fan!
It's the latest item I've added to my webshop on Redbubble, and as you no doubt know, it was inspired by the old illustration 'The Seven Ages of Man' regarding evolution.
I drew it originally for the UKCAC98 convention booklet 31 years ago as an affectionate look of how our attitudes towards comics change as we get older. (Or towards any genre really; TV, movies, sport... anything that one can be a fan of.) A lot of people have told me they liked it, so I thought I'd make a nice item for your morning cuppa, evening Horlicks, etc.
