Today I had another of my regular transfusion drug treatments in hospital for my tiny illness... nothing serious... its just a treatment to keep me in check. But I get it done at a Chemo Cottage in hospital; and let me tell you, it is always a humbling experience. Being surrounded by people having chemo, especially at Christmas, is a truly grounding experience!!...Its not sad it's just.. REAL!
Anyway my transfusion went fine...and one reason it was so relaxing is that I had a few new magazines to pass the time with. Good old reliable Frankie was one such magazine that I took with me today and everything just slowed down.... and I could indulgingly pour over its nostalgic stories and quirky photoshoots ...!
His simple colours and shapes are just so lovely and inspirational to any artist who loves being able to draw and communicate with kids....And lets face it- they are the most honest crowd you will ever meet!!!
