Postcard sent to author, blogger and activist, Cory Doctorow.
This was an old memory from Japonica in Greenwich Village, New York, circa 2013. Funny how totally random moments never leave you.
Anothere handmade postcard sent to Elspeth Murray, the Scottish poet.
It’s a line I’ve used before, but it seemed like an idea Elspeth would really relate to, so I sent it along. Sometimes I do that- find an idea I really like, and try to find new ways to play with it. All artists do this.
Scottish Project #030 just arrived in Glasgow. A wee bit of damage top left corner, but that’s normal.
Hand-drawn postcard sent to Christ Chirnside, in Trinity, Edinburgh.
Chris was a regular at the bar I used to work at as a student. We became friends; we’re still in touch, 35 years later.
Kinda sums up a lot of conversations I had while living out in LA, California. More to do with the people I was hanging out with, than the city as a whole.
(A wee batch of recent work, most of it published previously on Twitter.)
Some Scottish friends sent me photos of their new postcards, recently arrived. Most have taken on some damage in transit, but that is part of the story.

Postcard sent to Catriona Courtier, my dad’s first cousin. She and I were always great pals.
