25 April 2013: Update

Apologies, followers, for the lack of updates on my blog recently.  I'm very excited to say that we got a publishing deal with Canongate Books to do a book of dad's life through his art so I've been buried in organising material for that... I will share more goodies from the archive again when I get a chance, so please keep checking in! Thank you all for your wonderful support so far...

15 March 2013: "The World of Fat"
