The Difficult Putt is one of the Burdz golf cartoons series.
It shows that they always try their hardest. Being Burdz of course, they sometimes over do it or go about it in the funniest way.
This is a typical example of Max’s humour. It’s only a difficult putt if his beak is crooked. Mind you the hole is up wind.
There are around 9 or 10 different Burdz golf cartoon images. This is the original sketch by Max and an example of the coloured image is also shown.
The Burdz are the brain child of Max Bullock who created them more than 40 years ago. They quickly took on clear characters and developed their own very different outlook on life. Even in the simplest of drawings Max has often added tiny little additional detail. In many drawings you will spot an insect in the corner or bird on the horizon. These cartoons offer more humour for a later day when you eventually spot it. The more complex cartoons offer much more hidden humour, if you can spot it all.
They reflect Max’s humour perfectly and once you spot the jokes and get on his wavelength, you will see more and more in every cartoon and see the genius in him. The Burdz were fully brought to life and each given names in his Book “The Burdz of Burdle” published by Melrose books in 2016. His book has one of his few written stories for children and well worth a read.
Since resurrecting Max’s drawing and digitising them for his website, we found and cataloged many hundreds of lovely drawings. Many images were later coloured by his friend John Barry and printed, along with the rest of the set, for his exhibition in 2015.
