from the archives 

A6, Daler Rowney (for a change) sketchbook number 8, beginning December '96.

Blimey, a bit of colour. I do apologise. Have a strong cup of tea and breathe deeply for a while and I'm sure the shock will pass.

Hmm ... I would have expected not to still be making R.E.M. references by '97. Probably a hangover from when Jamie Hewlett and, particularly, Philip Bond (who I met very briefly in Bristol at the weekend as it happens) used to drop snatches of their lyrics into the margins of their early Tank Girl and Wired World strips in Deadline magazine.

Is that gouache? Blimey, that's wonderful. I'm surprised you don't do that more often.
