A touchy subject (children avert eyes)

 Unfortunatly no longer with us...
This is Rachel one of 3 very close friends I had when I was younger.. All 3 gone, but only the evidence of the last one to go remains. She died aged 17.

The Pictures were drawn Whilst I studied at College. I enjoyed sketching the human body and never was any good at the male  body, but somehow managed to get something right on the female... Rachel was good practice, mostly because she could stay still.

All pieces were sketched with a 2B  without a my personal hate, so any mistakes are in sight and refuse to this day to alter them. even marks from being in the book, in storage, accidently stepped on and scrumpled up or paint marks are still on them. (adds to the effect).
 You could call these are treasured posessions, a reminder that this person will never be forgotten will be loved eternaly and celebrated always.


1 even if theres no physical photos there are mental ones.
2 being able to draw has its perks for documentation.
3 Great memories with best friends.

more from the book

    This is scraps of paper (and I mean scraps, in all shapes, sizes and colours) used for the cleaning of paint brushes, drips and colour tests (The collection of these scraps are always growing and added to). It was sort of porposly arranged and stitched into.... oh   and a button. Orriginaly, it was going to be added to, but got side tracked. When I came back to it, decided it was best not to go further incase i wrecked it.

    You know thoughs doodle books that look like colidoscopes? well this is what happens when you leave ME in charge of one....  I get annoyed with it, decide to rip the one i am presently trying to make look pretty up, stick it to something else I didn't like  and somehow it works out fine...... well, at least I tell my self that....

    The Asian Lung was again a piece that got cut up due to personaly thought mistakes. It soon got added to the back of an old envelope and worked into  alittle further, then placed it with satisfied Pride in the book.


1 wondering off  often stops you from going too far
2 nothing wrong with scraps of paper that inspire you
3 some pictorial doodles sometimes look fantastic even after a hissy fit..
