It seems like print is on the verge of extinction,in favour of profits and technology. It’s a shocking vision; perhaps we won’t see new books printed, only ‘pdf-ed’ or whatever other platform takes hold of us.  But while there are pages in a book and words to capture the imagination, let’s make merry and pray that the future isn’t written in stone (or code). To think that in a short while I will be sketching people on a train reading from a tablet. Funny. Its just not funny ha ha…

It might be time to dust off the old sketchbook, sharpen the pencil and go old school for a few months.

I noticed a man enjoying his book on the Underground the other day.

“From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.”
– Groucho Marx (1890 – 1977)
