As I continue to sift and sort through all my high school artwork, Argy and Bargy have been keen spectators. I thought they might like the story behind this now-faded ink house, which I drew for my grandparents when I was about 15.
Its a picture of my grandparent's place. The weatherboard house was built by my grandad, who worked for a newspaper and was a printer by trade. Imagine working all day and then coming home ... to build your home. The boys did like the story (though I do have to wonder whether they think he built the house out of Lego).
They were, however, quite disturbed by the ink. I had clearly left the picture unfinished all these years. Can we colour it in now? asked Argy.
