So I sent Steve Bell a message and he answered immediately:
Thanks for asking. If you let me know which image you want I could save you the trouble of scanning it.
All the best
A gentleman and a scholar- so here is the postcard
Anyway it’s all excellent stuff – – there’s lots here www.belltoons.co.uk
A friend send me a postcard of Steve Bell’s cartoons- which I actually scanned to include here but I thought ‘would I want my stuff reproduced without permission or even a courtesy call’ well I probably would but he’s a famous and successful cartoonist . . . so I’ve not included it but I might drop him a line just to see if it would be OK.

Haven’t posted for a while due to having been away in the North performing at this festival -with my trio – Guido Pietrella on bass, and Gianluca Meconcelli on drums… and, of course, the support of my wife, Lesley
Was great fun and as it was Alex’s birthday we sang Happy Birthday to him in Welsh/Italian: ‘Penblwydd Hapus a te!!‘
Need an artist’s statement that is pure pseudo-intellectual rubbish?
Search for Arty Bollocks Generator– or there’s a link below
It should read ‘tutto in sei corde’ it was the first time I’d performed again with Carmelo for some years – our group Jamencuz faded out as he was working away from Umbria – -but it was good fun to be back together again
