Nice do! But where's your nose?


Daniel: I'm tempted to quote Groucho Marx in response to that:
"Say, that's quite a nose ya got there. Did ya pick it yourself?"


"It's David the chameleonic medium-straddling pop genius, not Dave the chameleonic medium-straddling pop genius."


Noses aside, i'd prefer a Bowie-haircut over a pair of Elton John glasses any day. (Although they'd suit _that nose_ just fine.)


AND... you worked on a drawing board, using both hands rather than mainly the index, as we mostly do now... Sigh....


Where's the green and red colour in those Bowie locks?

Looking horribly like a commercial artist. (Been catching up on your posts). Sad to say I've been telling our workers for a while that computers, email and acrobat have taken us back to those pre-Henrion days. But I also remember long days and nights in darkrooms and think I prefer my Mac. Xx Ian


I thought that was a photo of me... brings back all the memories... cow gum and cutting the ends off my fingers with a scalple whilst using a metal type scale! Such hard work in those days... days when you just had to get your copyfitting and type mark-up right first time or the boss would have your privates cut off.
