Ivor Cutler

On Friday 24th November 1978 I had the good fortune to attend a gig by Ivor Cutler at Wolverhampton University.

According to this poster it was free admission although I have no recollection of that fact. What I do remember though is after the gig asking Ivor to do "One of his drawings" and this is what he did.

A treasured reminder of a great man.

If you've not heard any of Ivors work, do a search on you tube. Personal favourites are

  • "A wooden tree"
  • "Fremsley"
  • "I believe in bugs"
  • "Go and sit upon the grass"
  • "Barabadabada" (this is the theme tune to the BBC tv show "The Old Guys")

... and many many more.

My cartoon strip attempt from the early nineties.

Whilst sorting some stuff out in the loft today I found a box of old cartoons I'd drawn back in the early nineties. Even though it's really rough I think this was the best of the bunch.

Irritating TV banners!

For my first post I'd like to point out the stupidity of the many TV stations who plaster "Coming up next" adverts all over their programmes!


If you've made something worth looking at, LET US LOOK AT IT without all the distractions.
