Review:



I think that perhaps Bobby Bakerís drawings are ok, but they have been displayed horribly, instead
of ripping the pages from the notebooks (though I understand why she hasnít) each page has been
photographed against the background of a wooden table, and each photo framed. Whatever nice quality
might be in these worked drawings is pretty much lost for the preservation of the note books that
are piled on top of each other in a glass (plastic) display case. When reading Russel Brandís
autobiography (which I thoroughly enjoyed) I noticed that he took the time to keep all the scraps
from his life in spite of the crazy drug raddled days, all I know is that my life is too crazy mad
for that type of organisation.
