Michael Scott sent me this photocopy many years ago and I made another copy of it today and added some fake "tattoos" with the aid of a few rubber stamps. This was inspired by the song which follows ( available for 7 days only) that Jim sent on a cassette today. Most was early jazz novelties by Louis Prima but amongst the oddities on side two was The Tattooed lady by Billy Cotton & his Band with vocal by Alan Breeze. This reminded me of the Groucho Marx "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady" which i tried to find but found instead another Tattooed Lady by Paddy Roberts. So here they both are.
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.
