About This Project

I like the oddball. Comic strips from the 1950’s, saucy-seaside postcards, American pin-up art.

So this is an amalgam of images, memories from childhood, places in the world I’ve visited, stuff I’ve simply liked and enjoyed along the way.

However, the real inspiration for this was Hannah, aged 8 at the time. She drew people with smiles, teeth and glasses (top left, centre bottom).

I’ve always held a fascination for images that repeat. Like cigarette cards. Each the same size but no two the same. This started top left and just grew. I haven’t a clue what it all means.

As they say ….. every picture tells a story.
