Postcard sent to Martha Weatherford, an old college buddy now living in the New York TriState area.
Part of The Scottish Project.
Since 1997 I’ve drawn thousands of “Hughcards” [cartoons drawn on the backs of business card], just to give me something to do while sitting at the bar. Two decades later, I’m still at it.
From December 30th, 2018, almost two years ago. One of my favorite all-time drawings. William Blake, eat your heart out.
PS: Yes, I’m still carrying on with The Scottish Project. A man can wear more than one hat etc.
A few days ago, I tweeted out, “The first person to email me wins this original drawing” etc, Beth was the first one to reply. [NB- the tweet has since been deleted].
About the drawing: This time, back in New York City’s West Village in December, 1998, I was shopping for Christmas presents in the snow. It was was one of those moments when life seemed absolutely perfect. Everything was alright in the universe. Those moments had become increasingly non-existent ever since leaving college, it was nice to be back in the flow again.
