All The Good Things In My Life Are Bad




Slightly different post today. I was asked by Greg Stekelman, aka TheManWhoFellAsleep, to be part of his virtual 'book tour', to promote his book A Year in the Life of TheManWhoFellAsleep. Basically it is like a normal book tour, but undertaken by a lazy man who can't be bothered to travel to godforsaken places like Ottakars in High Wycombe; It jumps from one of Greg's favorite sites to another each day. For those of you who don't know, one of Greg's 'hobbies' is eavesdropping on the tube and recording snippets of conversation like a public transport anthropologist (these appear weekly in London's Time Out).I could chose what i wanted to do for the tour, so i decided to illustrate Greg doing just that and name the installation after one of the overheard lines from his book. Anyway, i wouldn't have bothered if the book had been crap, but it is great so check it out (and Greg's site) if you get a chance!

HI there, I love these pictures.. they are so sweet. And what you see first time isn't necessarily what you assumed it would be. I like it!

This is really great. All of 'em are beautiful little pieces of life. Taking both the close-up and the distance picture makes it even more special. Yeah, I absolutely like it! :)

Thank you so much for hosting this part of the blog tour. It's amazing to be immortalised in miniature... you really capture a likeness amazingly well.

Keep up the good work. All the photos are fantastic.

Amazing pictures indeed. It just felt like when me and my wife went for flights to Zimbabwe in order to spend a vacation there and at the Victoria Falls, at a serene spot we both were sitting just like in the pictures above. I just recalled those extravagant moments I spent.
