Fair's fair

I guess it's only fair after ridiculing my mates that I should stick this picture of myself on here. It was taken at my graduation show in Alfreton Hall, Derbyshire - ah the eighties, such style.

Funny old pots those, things have come a long way in the last twenty odd years.

they look cool to me, quite contemporary...hey doug speaking of solitude you referred to earlier, have you ever thought of starting an emerging artists programme? I'm sure graduating students could learn a lot from your experience.......

cool dress sense. for the 80's, that was very much the look for the artistic type, I've got a pic of me that must have been taken around the same time. we must have been visiting the same tailor.
I'll put it on my blog.

To be honest Ang, I need the solitude in order to focus completely on what I'm doing. Most of the time I love it, just me, the radio and my bird table. I have the odd mate along(and they are odd, particularly Blogger Matt)which breaks things up nicely now and again.

Paul, I think it's more likely the same charity shop.

Ron, good to see you back, look forward to reading your post later if my power holds out.

Hi Doug, I have one of those mugs from your show. It burns your fingers. You can have your tea from it every time you visit!!! All the best , Your mate Nic?

Hi Nic
Fancy meeting you here, bet Paul's scared now after his comment of yesterday! It's amazing that mug's still going, it's worn better than I have. How's the workshop coming along, has it stood up to this crazy weather?
