Ten years ago to the day, we moved to Davis. I remember, because it was the Fifth of November. We’re still here.
It was more than a month after we packed up and left London for California, staying with family in Santa Rosa until my wife found a job at UC Davis. We found an apartment in south Davis, and became Davis people. I started sketching Davis at a Sketchcrawl in December 2005 and while I took until the middle of 2006 to really get into sketching Davis, I haven’t really stopped since. Here are a few, sorted by year…
A decade is a long time. Seen a lot of changes, and a lot of stay-the-sames. The personal highlight of course was becoming a father in 2008, and my artistic highlight was I think my solo show at the Pence Gallery in 2011. So, I shall be popping open the Champagne and saying HOORAY DAVIS! (Actually, no, I’ll be having a cup of tea and playing Disney Infinity, but you know, you get the idea)

Neat collage of sketches!
Cheers! I kept it brief, just a few randomly from each year.
Happy anniversary and thank you for sharing.
Love the collage. And my two P. Scully commissions are much admired. Thanks for documenting “my” town.
