Still in our thoughts though he's been gone to that big sentry box in the sky for a few years now. Just found this other image of him online whilst looking for photos of the Coronation of King George VI which he attended as honour guard. I think that's what you called it anyway? We a have alarge version of this on our wall that my Dad hand tinted - a lovely red uniform and stripes on the standard. This is a Tuck postcard I never knew existed! Annoyed that its been sold - would be nice to have.
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.
