This collage is a reminder of those great days of children's matinees I've mentioned before in a previous blog but forgot to mention the sweets. The penny and ha'penny chews, the gobstoppers, the flying saucers, the candy cigarettes (now called candy sticks) the bulls eyes and hundreds and thousands, the bubble gum and the sherbet dabs! No wonder I have so many fillings!
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.
