Budding cartoonist Lucy Currey has created a whole world of fun featuring a quirky canary and his owner.

The nine year old who attends St Mary’s Primary school in Beaudesert only started cartooning a few short months ago.

She dropped into the Beaudesert Bulletin office to show her first cartoon ‘Stumpy’ which features the cartoon canary and his owner, Borris.

“Borris thinks Stumpy is really annoying but Stumpy thinks Borris is his servant,” says Lucy.

“Stumpy mainly sleeps, talks to Borris and  jokes around.”

“I got the idea after watching Garfield and seeing a yellow canary in my backyard.  It gave me the idea for the character Stumpy.”

When Lucy isn’t busy creating new adventures for Stumpy and Borris, she loves to play with her dog, Molly.

She also enjoys reading books, drawing, playing netball, playing piano and writing stories.

Beaudesert Bulletin is happy to share the adventures of Stumpy and his owner with our readers in future editions.
