A sunny and warm day that feels more like July than September. We went to Crewe flea market to find some bargains including a nice Emergoplast tin for Hazel for 20p( soon to be on her blog I expect) a spanish childrens recording of ducks singing such favourites as Bananas and Couac Couac! Also a Cd of the soundtrack of one of our favourite films The Little Shop Of Horrors on a cheap label. Archie just found a huge caterpiller he narrowly missed running over with his bike. I looked it up on the internet and it turns out to be an elephant hawk moth.
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.
