I included a possibly foolish throwaway insight into my past in the Steve Hodge autobiography review, that as a child I’d draw pictures of the Forest squad and send them to him to get signed. I’ve just had a rummage in the loft to see if I could find them, but alas was only able to unearth some more recent sketches, unsigned, from 1995.
The next stage of the search will be to see if the parents might have kept hold of this veritable treasure-trove of future embarrassments. I have no idea how likely that is, although they do seem to have a worryingly large cache of my old school books stored away somewhere so there’s always the possibility. So, for those of you that asked, here are some (slightly better I think) drawings from my youth.
That should help set your expectation levels for the even less technically gifted versions! I’ll keep trying to get hold of the really shit ones! Apologies for the dubious quality of the scan (which is really, rather blatantly, fairly hastily taken pictures with my phone’s camera!).
Sorry about the self-indulgence, but some of you did ask.
