Back in 1990 I made a trip with Avon club members Mark Haycraft and Chris Jones to Australia where we ended up being invited by Bill Moyes to his weekend home in Newcastle. Bill was very generous with us and took us towing with his equipment: A speedboat with a long length of line and […]
I have taken quite a few snaps of the DSC members for wintertime scribbling of caricatures. I don’t really have any time during the summer months, but I thought I saw a likeness in John as a turtle or tortoise, so tried this one of him.
The poor weather these last few days have given me time to do the 2nd Brits poster. The first was for the UK event, with caricatures of Boris Johnson and Teresa May. This one for France I thought I might use and Iconic british Bagpiper rounding a high french alpine peak.

Then tried an image around what I thought was an emblematic tower of a church. They liked that, but wanted a different church. Bored with the flat graphic stuff I tried […]
I already made a web banner for the Aerothon event in Baja California. Here is another for their Peru event. Plenty of Peruvian stuff, clothes, hats, llamas etc, as well as the obligatory bike and paraglider.
