Archiving...

After Bill's comment, I'm making great efforts to get the orientation of the photos right.

Now, I think I made this bag in primary school. In it I kept IOUs from people to whom I had lent money. The one in the bottom right hand corner is an IOU from my Mum for 60p.


Surely parsley? I got the spelling horribly wrong.


Sweatcorn??


The page on the right is from a book of fonts that I found really useful. I'd copy out the letters, often tracing them.


I think this drawing was by my brother. He was always drawing cars.


Drawings of people in the sixth form common room I think.


Drawing of a bridge in Oxford, probably done while I was in the sixth form. Oddly enough I was in Oxford yesterday sitting on a bench and I looked up and saw that very bridge.


Our dog Roger, immortalized.


Random architectural type drawing.


A sketch from Oxford again. My Mum's publisher was in Oxford, and we went down there occasionally. I remember drawing this when waiting for her to come out of a meeting.


A riverside building in Bradford On Avon that has now been turned into retirement flats. These architectural type drawings were done when I was trying to build up a portfolio to do architecture at Uni.


Classical sketch.


Charcoal drawing of a plant.


Treehouse?


Not sure where this house is.



This is of a house by the canal in BoA.








This building by the canal in BoA is still there. Been done up now. I should do a before-and-after.


Leeds castle I think.


With this, we're at Dauntsey's doing CDT for GCSE. It was in a brand new building. I used to work there virtually every evening.




















In the bottom right there's a postcard from Nadine to my mum when we were living at Ensley Gardens.


A painting I did in:


...1977.


Brass rubbing from somewhere...


I think it was in primary school that we did a project on native Americans. I remember calling myself Green Feather. Here's a pouch I made. I also recall going to the American museum in Bath.


This picture was up somewhere in our house.


Calligraphy doodles.

 


Doug had this up in his room.


Awards for skiing.


I never saw Ghotbusters, but the logo fascinated me.



I like this painting / collage.


A Renault 4. We always had Renault 4s.






I was away skiing on my mum's birthday.




















I remember painting this with Simon when we were living at Huntingdon Rise.







I like this one. Comes from the myth below:




Like this one too...














I think this was a 1976 or 1977 one.






I think it said 'thunderstorm' on the back. Another one from the 1970s?
