Design is kinky

I submitted these to Design Is Kinky a few years ago for some design comp. Didn't make it, but they're kind of cute.

Super bunny!

Here's Gen, Easter circa Feb '82


Some time I scans these little doodles in - might as well share then now.

Home made cards

I'm also packing up my trusty home G5 Mac, deleting what I don't need and backing up what I do. Here's a few things worth another look before they hit the trash.

A couple of rags that were once Tshirts

Pota! Pota! Pota!
My host family bought this Tshirt for me in 1998. I had been looking for some mementos that were in Italian and this was one of the few around. The words are apparently Bergamo slang for something, and some comedians used to always say it on TV, along with 'Fia!'. Hilarious apparently, so much that they made Tshirts.

This on is also special as it has a screenprint on the back that I did with my late cousin Jack, probably not long after my time in Italy.

The next one Zander screenprinted for me, as a birthday present to accompany the main present; a ticket to Kraftwerk, with him and Ashley. We all got a Tshirt, but I bet they didn't hang onto theirs as long as I did. I persisted with wearing this one to the gym until only recently, when I discovered quite how threadbare it was when it went basically see0through after a sweaty session!

Farewell old friends, to landfill!

Moving out

Gen and I have started the packing process; we move into our new house in a week and a half. I've been coming across a few of those things that have to be thrown out, but need recording first. So I'm taking pictures or scanning stuff as I go.

Remember this? This is Gen's SIM card from her first mobile phone, which was with the now defunct One Tel

And here's a matchbox from my favourite cafe in the world, Kobus Kuch, in Delft. Best apple pie ever. Gezellig...

So now I've shared, now I can throw this stuff out!

Mark Priestly one year on

About a year ago our mate Mark Priestly took his own life. We all still miss you mate.
