The story behind the dedications
“For the laidback Mr Gum-Joy”
The first time I saw Mr Gum-Joy, I thought he’d collapsed in the street. Then I looked closer and saw that he was actually lying flat out, painting tiny scenes on old bits of dried out chewing gum, beautifying them! I only see him once in a blue moon, and often from a distance, so I’ve never talked to him. But if you read ‘Alice B. Lovely’, you’ll see straight away that’s he inspired a storyline in my book! You can see his actual art here.
