Bonjour, Love your work. Lively and fearless. Discovered your site when searching for info about your father John who taught me at Folkestone in '63 and '64 (I was in the same group as Paul Davey and Steve Bradley - don't know if you remember them). Glad to know John's still with us and, presumably, still painting. I wish I'd listened to his advice to 'do' fine art instead of graphics when I progressed to Dip.AD and then the RCA. Now retired to the backwoods of France, I've finally returned to painting. Better late than never. Do give my regards to John and thank him for being a brilliant teacher. Toodle pip, Gordon
Hello Aldous How are you? kindest regards Jacky
aldous i love your work i'm a big fan, as you may know? the picaso you made and i bought from you, still has centre stage in my living room and i'm not remotely bored with it, it still gives me a kick every time i look at it, and that's daily and the dog loves it too. i wish you could get a show together in this country, as i'd really like to see some of these in the flesh
Hi Aldous, do you and stephanie have a new email address? I wanted to pass on my new blog address asmallcaseacrossindia.wordpress.com. Having a great time in India. Wish you were both here too! Love Bobby
It's that time of year... And I'm not the first spectre that has loomed out of the mists, I see... I've learned little over the years, except perhaps that you probably can't make old friends. But you folks will come to mind from time to time and believe it or not I do wish you well. It's great to see that your productivity and talent don't seemed to have suffered any diminution with the passing years. Email me if you feel so inclined - and best wishes to you and Stephanie for the coming years. Roy
Hi Aldous Hope your well I'm having a show with Rebecca here in Folkestone if your free pop in and have a look.
DEAR ALDOUS!!! Lost your message with e-mail address! Trying to send you sms last 2 weeks to your UK number, but my phone do not sending it... PLEASE, contact me by email: email@example.com ! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!:) Katerina
I went to the Anchor and Hope in London recently and was really drawn to your painting Stephanie and the Giacomettis, maybe because it reminds me of when I go to Africa and become a spectator of art and people out there. I would love to have it on my wall. Please do contact me if this is at all a possibility. Lovely to discover your work. Best, Charlotte

Hi - I was taken by your work 'cardinals ducks and deities' on display in the hope and anchor on the Cut. I wondered whether it was for sale? thumbs up, Philippa
Aldous, what has happened to P Pages No 37 onwards? Know what I mean?
Dear Aldous, I'm an old friend of Steven Appleby and I recall I almost had a group show with yourself and Steve - probably back in the mid 80's. Steve showed me your stuff from time to time and I was inspired by your drawings of New York - and other cities. I wanted to invite you to be included in issue 4 of a publication called Drawing Paper - the details are below - We are currently in the process of curating Drawing Paper issue 4 and would like to invite you onboard as a contributor. Drawing Paper is a newspaper based gallery of sorts concerned solely with contemporary drawing practice. Published and designed in Liverpool UK by Mike Carney and Jon Barraclough, it is an independent project for which we receive no funding or corporate support. Drawing Paper is only made possible by each artist contributing an equal fee (20 artists contribute £55 each which covers the printing costs only). Contributors tend to be a mixture of emerging artists to mid career and established international artists. We have no prejudices or agenda – there is no curatorial theme – we just try to show a wide variety of interesting, high quality work. Previous issues of Drawing Paper can be viewed here. http://issuu.com/mikecarney/docs/dp1_low_res_single_pages http://issuu.com/mikecarney/docs/dp2_low_res_single_pages http://issuu.com/mikecarney/docs/dp3_singles We are aiming to publish DP4 in early September 2011 to coincide with The Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition. In order to increase exposure for our contributors, we are working to ensure distribution points at several high profile establishments in London including Jerwood Space, The Drawing Room, ICA, Tate Modern and Magma book stores as well as outlets in key areas of the UK. Drawing Paper will be sold for a small fee in these outlets so that stockists can recoup their delivery costs. It will continue to be available for free at special events and in selected locations in Liverpool and Manchester. We are also developing a dedicated website which will include a subscription facility. Profit made through sales of Drawing Paper will be put towards our administration costs and further development of the project. Deadlines 1. Please confirm your interest by replying to this email as soon as possible and no later than Friday 5 August. 2. Please provide artwork/s, captions and biography by Monday 22 August latest. 3. Please pay your fee via Paypal by Monday 22 August. (Cheques or bank transfers are available to UK contributors – please confirm your preferred payment method via email) Technical stuff Digital artwork should be supplied as high res (300dpi) uncompressed JPEGs. Artwork should be supplied as large as possible. The maximum print area is 259 x 350mm deep. It is not possible to 'bleed' artworks off the page due to printing constraints. We will scale and locate your work sensitively in relation to content on the facing pages. We can show several works if you think it is beneficial in suggesting a series or aesthetic. We recommend no more than 3 or 4 works and reserve the right to edit accordingly. Biography / statements can be as formal or informal as you like (150 words max) – it would be great if you could talk directly about the work you've submitted. Please include web or email addresses and tell us about any upcoming exhibitions or events you are involved in. We are excited about publishing Drawing Paper 4 and hope you're keen to participate and join the community. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Mike and Jon. www.drawing-paper.tumblr.com
Have nice day! Much useful information, nice design, but this color hurts your eyes. 蒻
I met you this afternoon at the V&A Reading Rooms and we had a little discussion about French workwear. Your portraits are marvellous and I love the idea of your goal of 36,500 in a year! Quite some feat. Hopefully we shall meet again. You and your friend brightened up my afternoon. Bon chance, Jon
Hello You drew a lively sketch of my husband and me in Aldwych on May 16th. I wonder if you are the son of John Eveleigh who taught at Canterbury College of Art in the 1950s. I was a student there and on one occasion I sat for him. My name then was Hazel Richards. I seem to remember 2 young children one of whom was named Aldous. Are you he? Hazel Maki
