IF - Pretend

As a kid I always wanted to be Batman like in the TV series, and one Christmas my Gran got me the Batman outfit, sadly she couldn't get my younger brother the Robin costume so she made one, he thought it was great - it actually fitted him better than my shop bought one. We never went out the house in them, hence the slippers. I do remember our teacher at school telling us not to watch the TV series as it could corrupt us - huh? This drawing is from a mini comic I drew back in 1988.

IF - Late

A doodle done while on a telephone call - I really should be paying more attention to the person on the other end of the line.

The following photos are from an exhibition I have with Paul from which finishes tomorrow at the Godfrey Pikington Gallery here in sunny St Helens.

This one is my younger daughter contributing to the Big Draw.

One that got sold - thanks again Kirkers.

The above is my elder daughter trying re-enact one of the pictures - I hope.

IF - Memories

This was done by my 4year old daughter Edie from memory, after she'd seen Paul Cousins' Cloudarama at the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight. The Superlambananas have now disappeared from the streets of Liverpool and surrounding area, 70 are being auctioned off next week - I think, and 34 to be auctioned on the internet on 16th Sept.
Below is the joiner for cloudarama, and below a miked up lambanana.

I really thought this week's subject would be 080808 for some reason so I did this one prematurely.

IF - Foggy

As a youngster I remember being hauled up hillsides in the Lake District for views like this. I also remember being told not to run in the fog because it'd kill you, I'm living proof as to this being a lie.

IF - Punchline

This is based on a drawing my 8 yr old daughter started, I added the fez and hey presto a Tommy Cooper tribute act. His catchphrase or punchline was "Just Like That!"

Those not in the know, Tommy Cooper was a very popular British comedian (60's & 70's) who based his act on magic tricks going wrong. Although he was an accomplished magician and member of the Magic Circle. I remember as a kid he could make me laugh just standing doing nothing.

In real life he'd be funny too, he would leave a taxi, slipping something into the taxi driver's pocket saying, "Have a drink on me." The something turned out to be a tea bag.
