Quite fascinated by these things – this one at Luna Park in Melbourne

Sadly, (but good for me I guess) is the only people who shared my fascination this day were one little girl and a bride and groom.

I design tees.
I’m tired.

Hi, my name’s Cathie – although I am mostly animated and a bit of a character – I am a real person and like to think of myself as a digital artist. I occasionally revert to my original persona – taking “straight” photos!

    In one of my sketchbooks recently a slightly elderly toupee wearing business man appeared enjoying a ride on a carousel. I don’t think you’re the only one.

  • Good to know Michael – I think they’re the last remnant of a life that was a little slower and more graceful, and when going round in circles wasn’t such an issue!!

    There aren’t enough of them around anymore! I suspect that workplace health and safety might have something to do with that! Beaut work, Cathie!
