Sketchy 129

….from an ancient idea in a previous sketch book…

…based on cigar box seals….

…I think I was gonna make some cigar box guitars and got obsessed with that label patterns….

….or something….

…(apologies for the blurry bits….this sketchbook is warped beyond good scanning from pressing too hard with the pens!)….

Blast It All To Hell

…if I’d called the sketchbook dump I posted early this week “A Fistful Of Pages”….Scan 783 Scan 784Scan 790 Scan 791 Scan 792Scan 804 Scan 805Scan 808 Scan 809Scan 826 Scan 827Scan 835 Scan 836

…then this one could have been titled “For  A Few Pages More”….

…curse you hindsight!

No Post On Sunday But I Have An Excuse

…first time I’ve missed posting since I started this blog….IMG_0713

…but this collection took me way longer to price out than I was expecting (2hrs longer!)…

IMG_0714…6 plastic cubes chock full of amazing stuff…three Dole banana boxes of ok stuff…and three more banana boxes that went straight to Restore (Hi Sarah!)…(Restore is our local Habitats For Humanity charity shop, support it please)…

…many thanks to my good friend Dee who had to rearrange her band practice (that’s kinda like re-herding cats after they’ve stampeded) because I wasn’t watching the time and don’t have a cellular device…

….I broke the “no-shop-on-your-day-off” rule as well, just to try and clear the floor…

…and I’m still processing it on Tuesday…

…nearly 1000 lps and associated  7″s…blues, country, folk…early NZ stuff….gems!!!

…so much good stuff I could poop

…but don’t have time!

 

(teaser alert)

 

…never seen this one before…

…(radio play comedy thing I think)…IMG_0729 IMG_0731

 

…must be old, because I’m pretty sure you can’t eat Kiwis anymore…(well, not in a restaurant anyway)….

…will start cleaning & pricing in a couple of weeks….

…once I’ve regained my blogging equilibrium.
