Re: never-ending gallery

Dear Lisa, thank you for all your drawings.

Dear Geoffrey there is an old saying in English, "trousers can travel half way round your waist while you are still putting on your shoes".

a Tribute to Fat James

I accept that this may be a little disrespectful. I took your labour of 12 years and parodied it in just over 12 minutes. I did it with affection and rhythm like that thing nice men do with their partners. I fucked it up becaue your work needed revival after a decayed start plus 2 more rotting years...
