Thanks to a Midlife fan for drawing these cards to our attention (spotted in a local shop in Chorlton – not South London this time but, hey, it might as well be).
They’re painted by David Fawcett available on the Holy Mackerel* website.
We’re no art critics, but they’re a bit like a cross between Edward Hopper and Beryl Cook. If Edward Hopper had put funny captions on his pictures. And Beryl Cook had specialised in small sad skinny people instead of big fat jolly ones.
Below is a selection. There are lots more. Take a look. Decide for yourselves what you think. You’re bloody old enough to.
* incidentally, did you know that St John’s Wood is the only London Tube station name that contains none of the letters of the word mackerel? Don’t say this blog isn’t educational.
