This is the last of the oldies that I've been using as Insta-filler while my lino printing gives way to fatherly duties. Back in 1992 I drew this picture of the 700-ish year old Church of St Mary in the historic village of Orton Waterville, Peterborough, not as a college piece but as a gift to my girlfriend-at-the-time's mum: a memento of the church in which she was married. The plan was to give it as a birthday gift some weeks or months later, but said girlfriend dumped me before that happened. I wish I could say that my 19 year old dumped ass did the honourable thing and gifted it regardless, instead of thinking f*** you and keeping it, but here it is and there you go. I didn't care about my ex's annoyance, but her mum was a nice lady who'd only ever been kind to me so I still feel a tiny residual trace of guilt. Not enough to track her down though, it's not like I'm losing sleep over it.
