  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Michael Characature by stacy83 on 14 December 2003 8:07pm
Hello Everyone,
I went to the Dec 11th book signing at Borders with my fiance Nick who decided it'd be a good idea, as he's an illustrator to do a characature for Mr P. Don't know if anyone saw him give the picture to Michael but he seemed to like it (the odd remark about similarities to Michael Portillo were made..hmmmm!) and I thought i'd put the link to nick's art gallery on here so you can all look and tell us what you think. Thanks A lot and Here's hoping that Sir Michael has hung it pride of place above his mantle peice!

Yes! I do remember someone giving Michael a framed picture and saw that it was some sort of cartoon....

That's such a cool picture, looks just like him! lol

That is a great likeness. I have seen many poor attempts on the web, some of which were used by the BBC!

There is a picture on Sasparilla! of Michael with the picutre on the table, but not one of somebody handing it to him. When you send me the pics Lyn, I will certainly add it to the album.

Here is the pic with the gift!....

Thanks for your help and replies everyone. I e mailed the staff at Borders in London to ask if Michael took the picture with him and not only did he take it but apparently he was very happy with it!

Thanks to Lyn for sending me the photos, great to see the picture on your web site Sophie-Lou.

I will be able to send the photos I have from the day to anyone interested soon. Just mail me at:
