Bye Bye Analogue!

Readers' Art

Dear TV Mascot,

As this month marks the switchover from analogue to digital TV in the UK I thought I’d have a go at creating some art to mark this momentous occasion. And who better to address this work of art to than your own sweet self - the TV Mascot! And so, that’s precisely what I have done! And here, my televisual friend, is the incredible result…

Bye bye analogue television!
Not bad, is it? I reckon it captures the passing of the analogue age in a subtle and moving way, and I particularly like my use of a monochrome palette to illustrate the event! I had originally planned to mark the occasion by depicting you in the familiar guise of a Ceefax page but, on reflection, I decided that would require too much effort on my part! What do you think?

Your fellow TV fanatic,
Hector “Square Eyes” Haversham. Aged 63.

TV Mascot replies...

Telly-tastic! Thanks Hector, it’s always nice to hear from a fellow fan of the goggle box! And you’re probably right - making up a Ceefax page would have been a bit time consuming! And besides, without an easy listening soundtrack to go with it, it just wouldn’t be the same :)

Thanks again,
TV Mascot :)
