Gill and Dan got married last June and I finally handed over their wedding present drawing a couple of weeks ago, it's been living under my sofa. Anyway it's jumbled up, tangled tape of their favourite songs: Rock And Roll - Velvet Underground and Take Yo Praise - Camille Yarbrough

1998 - these are so old Gill and I could hardly remember who'd done them...there's quite a change from the ones I make now...I'm much happier with my drawing these days. On this one there's bit of city lights book store - commemorating our trip to san francisco

this bundle of diaries show my collage period (!) and also signs of age...
2004 - this one was good at the time but now it's a little bit creased!
2002 - (don't know what happened to 2003) I'm liking the envelope - might try and use it in something new
2001 - this is probably my favourite ever...and features my light blue typewriter (with the dodgy ribbon) that seems to live at Baileys homestore these days...sigh!
2000 - this one hasn't aged well - poor thing

2009 - this reminds me I still have to do a huge music print...there are plans afoot!
2008 - this was clearly the beginning of my not pretty office block phase
2007 - meeeeeeow - ah the big cat diary
2006 - one of my favourites...mostly because there's a bit of overheard conversation on the spine "I just need to locate my diary" - perfect, thanks busy businessman
2005 - Hmm I'd just started my MA and must have been a bit busy...perhaps not my best one ever!

since 1996 my friend Gill and I have been exchanging diaries with handmade covers...this week poor Gill struggled through the snow with a weighty bag full of all the diaries I've made for her...so starting with the latest 2010 edition here they are...(well kind of as I can only upload 5 images at a time and they're taking AGES!)
