This is.....show off time

Wowee Katie picked a hard one this week!

I've been trying to think of something that's sort of arty or crafty related.....this is a little bit lame but it's the best I could do.

Twenty years ago (sheesh I'm feeling old right now), my design was chosen as the front cover of the annual school magazine. This was back in the days before computers, and in the days of the very old photocopiers so everything had to be hand-drawn in black fineliner pen.

1988 was the bi-centennial year, hence the tall ship and the whales. I find the whole thing quite amusing now....I still have 2 copies of the magazine that I been dragging around for the last 20 years.

For more of This is, check out Angela's blog...and of course you should go and visit the lovely Sharon who has been doing a fabulous job filling in while Angela has been away.

Go you! Grouse cover! We didn't end up having a school mag in 88 because the slack arses that were supposed to do it were too busy being bitchy and drinking too much. Still cross? me? yep!! hahahahah

How cool is that! Great theme. I only ever got a couple of little cartoon drawings in on some obscure page of our school mag. I don't think I had the right connections on the school magazine committee!
