Im asking Matt how to resolve problems of text in photoshop blah blah.......... we are speaking on Skype...... as he is in Atlanta and I am in London...... to demonstrate what he is talking about he quickly knocks some rubbish together........ then pings it to me via Skype......... so now much later...... I am about to put something on the blog.............. my eye falls on Matt's mad poster...... What is an Ear-tist??????? hehehe........... It reminds me of a 'Big Brother is Watching You !' poster ........ I think it actually says 'Jez Coulson Reportage Artist' :-)))))) . Nice one Matt thanks mate.

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXX

PS.......... Harv has done a much slicker version of the same thing hehehehehe................ http://postimage.org/image/qlojw878/

PPS...... Speaking of 'Big Brother'...... I see today MI5 ( The British Spy Agency) released information on the mighty few who left British shores to join the 'International Brigades' to fight fascism in Spain just before the Second World War....... amongst them the writer of '1984' inventor of 'Big Brother' George Orwell........ he went secretly to the fight as Britain and other European countries had made it illegal to go and defend a democracy.... he wrote 'Homage to Catalonia' about his experience in Spain ......... it turns out today 4000 other brave men left Britain with him....... to fight the rise of Fascism in Spain....... it was thought to be much fewer as there were no numbers till only now with MI5's emerging lists ......... I met some of these brave few who survived into their old age. Men who risked all in the fight against General Francisco Franco's Fascists. The Nazis armed the Spanish Fascists and Democratic European governments stood by doing nothing in pretense of neutrality that was in fact just appeasement.

Matt lets see if we can find those pictures I made years back when I was a student of the old British soldiers of the International Brigades ....... Gathered round a statue made to be displayed on London's South Bank to honor them ....... sadly made shamefully late in their lives ...... but finally honoring their incredible foresight, decency and courage in recognizing the need and then taking action to stand and fight against fascism in the 1930's.............
