Nice morning in Chester looking round the charity shops etc. ( the photo is from last time when we saw the sculpture exhibition in the cathedral ) . Got a few bargains including Club Ska 67 album for a quid and a couple of DVD's including Simon Pegg in one called The Man Who Was Scared of Everything? Had a vege sausage rolls for lunch sitting in the sunshine by the Town Hall. There was an "art" exhibition on but dreadful tacky prints and sculptures of unicorns etc. Chaotic scenes at the cross roads where the God squad and the buskers were having a shouting and drumming match! Also people dress up in Halloween garb dancing about and pushing leaflets into your face - most unpleasant! Glad to find a spot in our favourite cafe for a hot chocolate and coffee before wending our way home.
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.
