Wonderful Lew, and plenty scope for more hopefully.....(-:

Always great imagination. Is there room for photo retouchers on the list?

More super stuff, Lew, and once again they are highly entertaining. My maternal grandfather was a wheel tapper at Newcastle Central Station, pretty much for all his working life. He didn't marry until he was forty so I was very lucky to be born! *smile* Bri

Thanks to all for the great comments. Stephen...there's a big list of obsolete jobs. I suppose photo retouching must be ALMOST a thing of the past. It's more a case of do I want to draw them? For example VHS rentals jobs must be stone dead now...but not much to draw there. Brian...I had an Uncle who, when I was a nipper, told me he was a 'Wheel-Tappers Mate.' He said he held the wheel-tapper's coat while he tapped wheels. As a sprog, I fell for this line for a few years.

Love it, Lewis, great characters and very entertaining!

Very nice and funny!

Great ideas and work, Lewis

Hang on Studio Wall

I came across the used denture salesman while looking for something else on the net. It was apparently common across Europe, including the UK. I've never heard of it, a bit before my time, and I doubt it's something that people would admit to. A yucky thought, but fun trying to visualize the salesman. Surely it can't be true. .

About the Artist

Self taught. Love drawing. Like to make pictures up, without using reference pics, often in cartoon style. I do other pictures where I do use reference. I'm knocking on a bit, born in 1940 in Greenwich, London. Retired, and loving it.
