My friend George has kept the bottom picture in his wallet for about 14 years. It’d be one of the earliest remaining manga-styled drawings of mine. It’s just a random girl I drew for him in black biro to cheer him up one day.
I didn’t even know this, but every time he gets a new wallet, he carefully gets my drawing out, and he puts it in the new wallet.
We were out his way today (he lives 144km out of Adelaide) and today I visited him for his birthday. Before we drove back home, I drew him another picture of the same random girl. I wonder how long he’ll hold on to this one?
