I need an exorcist...

All things past are not necessarily the best, and that in itself is a statement that shows my age. The act of ridding the mind of oppressive feelings or memories requires an exorcist.

The memories that need to be cleansed from my early days in graphic design are those of hand-rendering, blocked rotring pens, cow gum and motorbike couriers. The digital transfer, for all my bewailing has changed the life of art and production desks. So to stop the recurring nightmares and my head doing 360degrees tell me how to exorcise the past....

You were LUCKY! In my day graphic design were all about using red and ochre clay t'draw images of prancing buffalo on't cave wall. And nobody bloody liked it...

Exorcism? You don't know you're born.

indeed, how far we've come from primitive cave drawings...although some design still isn't far off!

Oh, Lordy, cow gum.

Getting high off the cow gum fumes and the chemicals from developing pictures from the PMT camera after all-night jags to get the issue out on time...

Thanks, Adam. I always wondered what you creative types did when you'd run out of coke.
