Last night I went to a great talk by the illustrator Mr Bingo at the Arnolfini in Bristol. We have really similar views on art, what art can be, humour and collecting random things, so it was really interesting (and inspirational) to hear how he has made a career out of doing the things he loves.
One of the things he collects is old postcards and he mentioned how they can split into niche groups - including ‘one person alone in a landscape (usually wearing red’. As I will be getting rid of a large portion of my collection, I thought it only fitting that some of these postcards find their way into his collection - so I will be sending a package down to him soon.

A few weeks ago, I picked up a few cinema advertising prints (the ones that used to go in glass cases to advertise new / up-coming films). They are printed photographs, which seem to have come directly from the studios.
This one is for the film ‘Melinda’, starring Calvin Lockhart.

Slide from the car boot sale. I can’t tell what 8mm movie camera she is holding, but I’d love to see some of the footage from it!
