Not really. I just love this tin ray gun from the Robert Opie collection. I used to collect such things but they are very expensive now, even for modern reproductions. We ocassionally find a battered tin toy at a boot sale but few and far between. Saw some chinese tin toys in Basildon of all places but they wanted £20 for them. A quiet day playing draughts and blogging. No post as yet. None yesterday either. Decided to start a new assembling booklet called FLOSS (details in comments ).
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
