No not in Pseuds' Corner grin

Scene and Heard by Ziggy, me and my friend are in the last caption. I remember saying that.

Incidentally, the Royal Academy of Art's Summer Exhibition is well worth a visit.

Have you forgotten the link Petallus?

My post wouldn't mean much except to anyone who gets Private Eye.

I was walking around the R A Summer Exhibition last week when I got chatting to someone who was a freelance illustrator whose stuff is in Private Eye each fortnight.

Anyway, I see there is a cartoon version of me in the latest edition of Private Eye, saying something about art (which I actually did say) with my beardy friend standing next to me.

I was rather tickled.

Can't do a link as P I does not have an online version. Anyway, I still can't do links.

There must be some Gransnetters who buy PI....

Good for you anyway, petallus! smile

Or should that be PE? confused

Petallus is depicted as a femme d'un certain age saying to her bearded friend, 'If it's something like that or a slab of blue paint & I think 'Gaah, what's that!? I presume it's me not understanding 'Art' enough.'
Well said Petallus, I have shared your sentiments and now you are immortalised in PI, I feel like a friend of the famousgrin

Saw that petallus. Much better than the usual reasons for being in PI grin

Know what you mean though!
The Bristol 'ladies who dine' at my house on July 21 (if they give me numbers) will be able to help me hang my new Phillip Grey pastelsmile

But then, they might just enjoy the food and drink.
If the weathers nice we are going to be outsidesmile.
I hope we enjoy it.
