This is the door to my room at Moorlands College, at the edge of the New Forest, Dorset. The date is approximately 1996*. This is where I first started cartooning, and this door was the place I stuck the drawings as I did them. I had done quite a lot of art up until that point, but this was a new thing that I tried for my own amusement and for those walking along the corridor, who formed a ready-made audience. It was more fun than the things I should have been doing – studying towards a degree in applied theology, which I never attained. There’s a lot more I could say about my time at Moorlands, and perhaps I will in another post.
Yes, that is a sunflower.
I may well dig out more photos in an attempt to keep this daily blogging habit going. Day 15 – that is somewhere in the region of half a month.
*Could well be 1997, thinking about it.
