An it don't seem a day too much! It's just whizzed by! I made this card for Hazel to celebrate or "anniversary". We started "courtin'" on November 5th 1983 at a firework and bonfire party in Alsager where she was at college. Hazel gave me this great book called "An Ideal Boy" which is charts and posters from Indian schools - very brightly coloured and naive looking with wonderful captions and titles like BAD HABITS which include "Kite flying on open roofs" and "Taking law in hands".
This is the envelope it was in - found in the coal shed!
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.
