During purgatorial lesson periods for GCE A levels, I carved initials on the wooden desk, and doodled compulsively on the school stationary.  Sometimes the English lessons in particular – depending on the teacher – were stimulating.  The intensity increased, in response.

Sometimes I drew the teachers  – especially the tired lady who taught French – but more often I daydreamed with fashions, laddered stockings and lads.

Here are some more of them.  Some of my roughbook pages have a little horse and rider jumping a brush fence in the margin – a single frame in a “thumb-flick” movie show.  This pastime whiled away academic hours.
