This cartoon was drawn by Patrick…he’s working with me and fantastic when it comes to drawing …as you can see! Ok, I “spoilt” the image a bit…didn’t I…if you’re interested in cartoons like these…be aware that Patrick will charge you… he’s brilliant…and he’s supplying me with them for my chess club news letter! I try to reinforce some rules by using these cartoons…the pawn was “complaining” to the King by being “pushed over” by the Knight…and then he said that he thinks the Knight had forgotton about his L-shape-move…you can leave a comment if you’re interested in cartoons like these and I will pass on your email to Patrick….
