An Australian fella I spoke to shared a simple but quite poignant thought with me. He said that in 20 years time he will very likely not be still wearing a band shirt he purchased at a gig; but he may well still be displaying a framed gigposter on a wall, or at the very least have that poster stored away as part of a larger collection, something perhaps that he may even pass onto his kids someday. This observation is so simple, it's never actually occurred to me before but it makes a lot of sense and provides real encouragement in continuing to design and be involved in the work that I, and other, artists do.
Sincere thanks, Liverpool, you've been a lovely place to visit. See you next time.
