Notebooks unearthed including long-lost one documenting getting a tube rammed up my nose and into my lungs in hospital one day…

I was trying to find a particular notebook of material in the studio today and ended up finding instead the booklet referred to here recording a visit to hospital in 2004. I really thought this one had somehow completely disappeared, but it must have just been under some papers half under a drawing board for the best part of 13 years. Now I have it I may use it as the basis for a new body of work from scratch. Another two slightly more recent notebooks which I also unearthed today were one recording encounters in taxis (my original idea was to eventually have a book based entirely on taxi drivers, but this stuff will now be material for blog drawings instead) and the notebook I was actually looking for in the first place, last to be dug up today, a record of general encounters in my area.

The hospital one was the best find though, quite a surprise.

Stuart murray & Alasdair Gray, Edinburgh 2006.

Found this photograph of me and Alasdair gray during a joint Q&A session we had with Neil Mulholland in a hall in Edinburgh College of Art to coincide with the exhibition Alasdair Gray & Stuart Murray at the embassy Gallery in Edinburgh in 2006. Also a photo of me and Neil during the same event. It was a good event and well attended. I remember that the shirt I am wearing in the photos was purchased on the way to Queen Street Station and changed into fresh out the packet in the train’s toilet, probably roundabout Croy. Aparently you can get a dvd of this talk from the ECA library, but I’ve never watched it.
