Hull Regional College
of Art; 1971-74
Oz sayz, "...I remember that first-year girl, a real thin-lipped girl with a middle-class concept of the niceities of art college. And she ends up jiving with me, looking like Keith Richards on a bad hair day!..."
David left for Hong Kong, and has been there ever-since. He says that Hong Kong is such a small place, you tend to travel a lot so it rarely gets boring. He married a Chinese girl in 1978, divorced in 1982. Married a Philippine-American girl in 1996 (or 7), had their first child in 1998 and our second in 2000. He's extremely happy with his wife and children. David has his own company, a small environmental-graphic design firm. He says, "...I consider graphic designers to be whores, but at least I get to play with pictures. I am still passionate about art; I am finding all (or most) of the excitement of artistic exploration in my poetry and my songwriting, and am just in a transitional period mentally regarding values in life...
[in a nutshell; I was always anti-making-of-money. After a few years in HK I somehow slipped into the 'making-money-is-a-purpose-of-life'. I have recently reassessed my needs and my passions, and am again looking towards more worth-while pursuits where the primary motivation is not money].."
David's wife's family lives in Los Angeles, so they go there as often as time and money will allow. Every time David visits he plays at open mic sessions in bars and coffee shops. He plays music, reads poems. He had a feature spot this Christmas (2000) in Santa Monica, a whole half-hour. He says, "...It went down well, though I suspect a good deal was because of my quirky accent..."
David sends some pix, in no particular order:
