NEWSLETTER 5 MAY 2023 [ LIST ### ]
Hello Cobber, Cobbers, Associates, Subscribers, Friends, Accidental Visitors & Lost Soles,
I am having PROBLEMS loading HTML pages to MAIL - you may or may not get the intended layout - sorry.
You should be able to [CLICK] anywhere to go to my [ HOME PAGE ].
[LINKS] on the [HOME PAGE] will go directly to the [ HEADINGS] described below.
RECENT GRAPHIC ART
In July 2022, I was encouraged to consider an upgrade my post-graduate DipCSAD and carry out a post-graduate project-based research study at UAL:CSM.
An interesting idea but at present logistically difficult. However, the first part of this is the creation of my 'Catalogue Raissonné'.
I started with this and have now completed my 'Catalogue Raissonné' for the years 1959 to 2023.
At present this comprises over 7600 'graphic art' works, but has yet to include any [ ARCHITECTURE ], [ DESIGN ], [ TEACHING ], [ RESEARCH ] or [ PHOTOGRAPHIC ] projects.
Due to these records also containing [ MUCH RUBBISH ] along with some [ FINE & GRAPHIC ART ] it is with some trepidation that I am sharing some parts with you.
At this time, the most recent part of this is avilable from my [ HOME PAGE ], [ VOLUME 9 - 2021 2022 2023 ]; from there , if you have the energy, you can access the first part, [ VOLUME 1 - 1959 to 1980 ].
Please drop me a line if anything catches your fancy, or pokes you in the eye.
I am now also a Citizen of Ireland; also a Citizen of United Kingdom (special acknowledgement to 'Windrush'); and a Citizen of 'The First Nation' (Australia) (I was born in the Aboriginal home of Boonwurrung).
Visitors to this site will notice a number of pompous Latin quotes or sayings scattered through the pages.
Dyslexia dictates that I have never been able to learn lists, so learning vocabularies for foreign languages has never been possible for me, even though I love the language(s).
Come along the Tories, and their purge of many creative subjects from the school curricula, the 'Classics' in particular. Hence, at SKB's school they were required to 'burn all the books' on Greek and Roman history. I managed to salvage one copy of each of most of the books on the Classics curriculum from the school library before the iconoclasm. My fine library now includes a Latin/English dictionary which has allowed me to pay homage to 'classic education' through my 'quotes and sayings' endeavours. Remember Elvis_Picasso's great gnome / motto:
'Omnia habet non sensum' (It's all meaningless).

ALL CURRENT WORK
This links directly, as it states, to all the work by me so far for 2021 to 2023.
Each individual image can be enlarged (in a new window) by a [mouse CLICK] - (window needs closing).
The images are grouped by [YEAR] and then by [TYPE]: DRAWING, POSTERS, GRAPHIC ARTS, WWW DESIGN, RESEARCH, etc.
As I mentioned above, it has yet to include [ARCHITECTURE], [DESIGN], [TEACHING], [RESEARCH] & [PHOTOGRAPHY] projects.
Each year includes a [ VIEW CHRONOLOGY ] which provides a 'sort of' diary of some annual activities.
This is but a single 'GIF' animation. Testing 70 frames at different frame speeds. ['JoES'] has a statement worth a note.
NEW: FACES FOUND IN PLACES
This is an updated set of annotated photographs of 'faces appearing in strange places'. Some small laughs to be had. NOTE - Contains 'mouse-overs', so best viewed - 'played' - on your [DESKTOP].
UPDATE: CLEVER TOSSING GAME
Again, this is an updated version of my famous, ['COIN TOSSER']. You get to play the game on the second page.
I have created some improved code - not claiming 'brilliant' code - to include a [score board]. Playing this game could bring you great satisfaction and liberating knowledge.
[Recent Home Page - REVIVED]:
Access to all my other notes: [ LOST FRIENDS ] and [ CLEVER PEOPLE ]; as well as the usual stuff: conventional graffiti, aimless philosophy, systematic anarchy and refined nonsense, as would be found on earlier visits here by you - same old rubbish.
