Free Stuff for Kids- No.12- Here Comes a Tiny Giant- REPLY.

No tiny giant finger puppets to be had this time or the time before that either. I do like how some places that I have decided to involve in this quest do write back with apologies. It also means I can now collect business headed 'With compliments' forms. Every cloud.

Collections- Bojo and Daz 12th July 1987-The Pop Pop Story- Inside David Bowies- David Live.

I bought some records recently in the charity shop, nothing fancy but in this bought record pile was David Bowie's, David LIVE.
I liked this very much, thought I might keep it, might sell it, don't know.
Anyway looking inside a treat ensued with a fully fledged dialogue comic drawing from Bojo and Daz, 12th July 1987.
There is a lot to take in and there is a lot of talk about somebody called Phil and aliens and words such as 'dat' and 'dis'. It seems to centre on The Pop Pop Story where Phil needs some pills.

Daytrips- Southampton City Art Gallery-Southampton.

On a recent trip to Southampton Dan and I decided to visit the Art Gallery. I had always thought about it when finding myself around the vicinity but either got there too late or torrential rain had decided that we went to IKEA instead. 
Southampton City Council says;
'The gallery is based in Southampton’s Civic Centre and opened in 1939. It offers the opportunity to enjoy high-quality exhibitions ranging from painting, sculpture and drawing, to photography and film. As well as a permanent collection, there are displays that change regularly to ensure new experiences with each visit.  The gallery holds an internationally important collection of over 5,300 works of art.' Lets have a look.






Anthony Gormley- Untitled (Diver), 1983
