Fiver (Doodle)


[IMAGE] A6 indian ink and watercolour

I have this five pound note in my purse.  Someone has written “Harold Steptoe 2” on the front.  Doesn’t that stop it being legal tender …?  Well I digress.

It got me thinking that maybe at some point – or several points in it’s life this £5 note was important for some reason.  A joke, a gift, a wage, a treat, a bill payment.

So I doodled it – along with it’s serial number “JC86 538045”.  I’ll spend it soon.  So if you find a fiver in your pocket with a scrawl on the front and the serial no JC86538045 let me know where it’s been and where it’s going?

    Oh, cool! I am sure it will not come to Australia. But I would love to see someone reports it.

    kl drawing. I’ve used it on my blog and credited you, I hope that’s okay. If not let me know and I’ll remove it.

  3. Corblimey – Thanks for asking 🙂 It’s ok for you to use it yes. I’ve left you a comment.

    I like the caption 🙂 (as well as the drawing). The way things are going, I’m sure “forgeries” of this quality will soon be legal tender anyway 😉

    There were some smileys in that, by the way. I think they didn’t get through.
