We had a splendid weekend in Birmingham with my sister, although she wasn’t entirely well which was a shame. Chris, hope you are better now.
On the way back we stopped in Cookham, where I worked as youthworker until starting this cartooning lark. It was great to see everyone. Timmy Mallett was there and took a few pictures which he has sent to me (with the greeting “Hairy Dave! You look great!”).
The first is Maddie_C and I participating in the service having just carried up the Elements to the altar. As you can see I am treating this solemn liturgical event with the seriousness it deserves.
In the second I am standing with a copy of ‘the Door’ containing my cartoon. I look not unlike an idiot.
Thanks to Timmy for the photos. The Timmy Mallett website is here in all it’s utter brilliance. As well as assorted Mallett merchandise the site contains a lot of Timmy’s paintings which are well worth a look. You may recognise one or two of the Cookham residents. No, not me I’m afraid.
