EssenceCartoon have really come up with the goods with their interpretation of my Urban gerbils strip 'Gum'. Originally it was going to be the milky coffee strip, but this one is funnier I think as it's short and to the point. Check it out on YouTube and let me know what you think:

URBAN GERBILS the Comic strip...What's it about?

Russy and Nutty are trapped together as pets in a gerbilarium. Russy hates Nutty as he represents everything he detests and is gradually being driven insane by the antics and poor hygiene levels of his fellow cell mate. He occasionally attempts an escape bid which always ends in disaster. As the strip has progressed, so has Russy's psychosis! Nutty on the other hand is perfectly happy eating, sleeping, and farting his life away.

They have been previously published in The Camden New Journal from 2011 to 2012 and also it's sister papers, The Islington Tribune and The West End Weekly.

Deviantart is their main home now.
