Licence To Licence

…still my favourite out of all my folk….

…must get this “Derek” obsession over and done with so I can go back to issuing these lads some more cereal-box licences…

Finally After All These Years

…I get what was literally promised to me in an article I read about second record trading…IMG_6027

…hard cash monies in the record covers!!!!…

…the author said he’d found joints/lsd tabs/and money in lp covers ALL THE TIME…

…this is my first find in nigh on 15 years behind the counter….

…and that is how much it turned into in local cash…

…even Liz was happy with that…

…(still waiting for the joints & lsd to show up…looks like Liz may have got to them first…).

If You Are Going To Steal Records

…don’t steal rarely seen cool shit like this….IMG_5950

…and don’t write your name in the cover…
IMG_5951

…and don’t identify who you stole it from…

…even if you do use pseudo-pet-names….

especially in a small pond like Dunedin…

…where the degree of separation is so minimal that it is, to all intents & purposes, non-existent…

….I know who you both are and I’m pretty sure everyone else could take an educated guess!!

…(Booger Heazlemunter…we have your Lp and info’ that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrator!!!).

OOO Colour

Scan 782

…this is the first cartoon I completed in full colour (ed pencil)…a reprise of a ‘toon published the year before…at the request of an AIDs awareness group whose name escapes me….

…damn, I’m old enough to remember sex before condoms!

…(I only worked in colour when someone else requested it in days of yore…too expensive for me to reproduce…

…damn, I’m old enough to remember print costs before colour copiers and ink jet printers!)

Washed

…up???…foot???…seaweed???…WHAT?….IMG_5997

…the Otago harbour sometimes does that annoying answer-to-my-question “magic-8-ball” thing…

…also recently washed up on the beach…IMG_6002IMG_6004IMG_6000

…another female sealion on a break…

…that’s the third in as many months (note the tag on the  near side flipper…something not present on the  other two)…

…nice to see them using the beach so regularly…

….mmm…sealions…..

21 Years Behind The Brush

…ooo…this is the first page I did with a brush…Scan 781

…actually it’s got some pen work in it as well, but my confidence that the brush was a good idea took a couple of years to “take”…

…can’t remember the context for the idea…

…or which publication it appeared in…

….(possibly a capping mag’)….
