Dundee likes its statues. I realised last night that I’m Ike’s mascot and he just takes me on all his adventures because he feels sorry for me.

We’ve been playing with fire!

Sue’s hat scared the children, so she had to take it off while collecting.

Ike doesn’t know a lot about art, but he knows what he likes

Ike and I are at the Pompidou

No, really, this is not a left over picture from the New York trip. There are two statues of Liberty in Paris. This one is on an island in the Seine.

A prop for the first few episodes of Venn. In the universe of Venn Ike, AKA The Mouse, is a huge media star and even has his own wine.
The label was designed by Meg from my brief (“It’s a cheap white and it’s got the Mouse on it.”) I printed it on sticky label and put it on a bottle of cheap white wine. There will be two bottles of this, one full one empty, for continuity purposes.
