On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation so sat down with his Walkman. It's all true.

On my 10th (circa) birthday I was given a red Sony Walkman on which to play Madonnas' new 'True Blue' cassette tape album.
I had a birthday party at a place called Wilderness Wood where we had sausage rolls and a go on the death slide, no-one died that day but someone did tread in some dogs waste material...probably me.

I realise that people of a certain age may need to google the words 'cassette tape' and will not have lived through the glorious age of taping the charts of a Sunday afternoon with the pause button poised, if that person is you go download some shit cause you've never had it so good.

Now I am a little bit older I listen to my digital radio which looks a bit like the image depicted above.

Thanking the fuck it's Friday!

Hello Friday, here's a very little drawing I did whilst my work colleague was writing out a quote from the internet. I hope to be able to bring you further inspirational illustrations from my work setting in the future.
I also laughed a lot today when one of my colleagues described his tutor as a 'wooly cow'.

Titting about on a Tuesday...

It's a view, not much of one, but a view all the same...

A tool of my current trade!

Hospital histories part 1

The foundation stone for the out patients department of Royal Sussex County Hospital on Eastern Road was laid in 1896. I drew this in 2012.
