In 2003 I was new to Melbourne and was keen to see and experience everything I could. I have recently been revisiting the pictures I took then and have found some that now have new meaning to me. These pictures are one example – they are of cute drawings on post-it notes stuck on the wall of a Johnston St boutique, which I was visiting with a friend. Now, I know that they are by published author Emma Magenta. Then, they were simply cute drawings by an unknown artist.
