Throwback Thursday

Throwback 1

Another Throwback Thursday shot that I posted on Facebook a few weeks ago – yeah it’s already Thursday here in Australia – we live in the future, you know!

This shot must be around 18 years ago (1996) – back when I lived in Cheltenham near Southland. The lad would have only been a month or two old. Not that you can tell by the wild mass of hair, I was undergoing chemotherapy at the time and was sick as a dog – but the young fella kept me going and kept me fighting. If you look carefully in the background, next to the umbrella, you can see my parrot-top walking stick. For a while there I needed it to get around. But that’s all in the past.

The young master is off at Uni conquering the world – and I am writing Pulp stories. How good is that?

KICKSTART

What better way to start the working week than a bit of Tom Waits ranting and raving, only the way he can. Have a good week everybody.

Throwback Thursday

Throwback 2

It’s Thursday once again – my last working day of the week. Yeah, I know I am pretty lucky (but there are some days when I’d rather have the extra dollars in my pocket). I posted this on Facebook a couple of weeks ago, so if you’ve read this twice, I apologise.

For Throwback Thursday, here’s a shot from 1995. I’d love to say that I was pounding out words to my first novel – but I’d be lying. Looking at that phosphorescent green screen, I would hazard a guess that I was trying to get my head around Corel Draw 2. Never did master Corel. In fact went on to use a Sun Microsystem program called Milestone – and then Quark, Illustrator & Photoshop.

Yeah, I learned these things late. When I studied art and design computers were only beginning to filter into graphic design. I did a lot of my early work using bromide and galley cameras and a lot of hand cut stencils. Hands up if you know what ‘Rubylith’ is? On occasion, I even used an airbrush for illustrations.

Technology, eh? It’s changing things so fast, I can barely keep up.
