See you Janine. It’s been an honour.
I saw this picture years ago in a backpacker in Rhodes. It’s one of those things that just astound me. I mean who the hell thinks of these things. And not only that, They get a chimp and a woman to pose with it, photograph it, and then print a bunch of posters, and then who the hell buys it. Well the guy at the backpackers we were staying in did.
It all just leaves me bewildered.
So I painted a picture of it.
Of course I did.
From memory. It was before digital cameras, so I didn’t take photos of every single thing.
And I called it The English Gentleman.
While I was trying to get out of other things I started doing these water-colours of people on various animals. Now they all collected together in this beautiful volume, with little poems I wrote to accompany them .
Suitable for all ages. For lovers of animals, art and dodgy poems.

And just a special thanks to Nat and Chiara for organising the excellent Canberra Zine Emporium on Saturday. It was the best. See you at the MCA in May.
