Mixed bag - firstly today's sketch of 'Rusty Az' playing on the back of a truck at, you've guessed it, the Truck Show.

Outside the 'Social Kitchen' a selection of wild game is hanging in the window.

...and a Social Kitchen bike

Our infamous White Hart Hotel where the Highwayman once held up staff in 1893 after a year of notoriety.  He fled with a handful of coins and a bottle of whiskey.  When he was captured during another hotel holdup five months later, he turned out to be a 20 year old well-liked New Plymouth carpenter - Bob Wallath.

The Highwayman when finally caught


  1. Nice selection of drawings, and bonus history lesson!

  2. Thanks Eric, I'm guessing most things we draw have some intriguing history, when we peel the onion. Look forward to catching up with you at the Symposium.
