This layout was originally created for APOCD. I know it seems like it has no meaning and it’s just about a new supermarket, but to me it’s a lot more than that. My grandparents have lived in the same house since before I was born. My Nana has been gone from this earth just over 10 years, but my Pa keeps the house exactly as it was while she was still alive. When I was very young I remember the area being considered the outskirts of town. Now, however, it’s really desirable because it is only 10 minutes from the city centre. In August this year, one of Australia’s biggest supermarkets opened a store at the end of Pa’s street. He was SO thrilled! His excitement was compounded even further by the fact that Anna’s boyfriend is a manager there and managed to get Pa in to the exclusive opening gala, where he got to speak to the Mayor. Sadly, I missed the whole shebang, but Pa took me to see it the following day. I don’t often get to see Pa that excited, so it seemed to me that that alone deserves a page.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a peek inside my studio.
