      IT IS INDEED A VERY SMALL WORLD:- 

     ON SAT. THE 3rd. OF MARCH 2012  I WAS IN A GALLERY 
 
AND I WAS IN CONVERSATION WITH A GENTLEMAN; WE TALKED OF MANY THINGS.
AND THE CONVERSATION DRIFTED INTO OUR RESPECTIVE AGES & RETIREMENT.
HE SAID THAT HE WAS SEMI-RETIRED AS HE HAD JUST HAD HIS 80 th. BIRTHDAY IN
JANUARY THIS YEAR(2012) TO THIS I REPLIED  THAT I HAD ALSO JUST HAD MY 80th.
AND I AM STILL WORKING.
I ENQUIRED AS TO WHAT DATE HE HAD HIS 80th. BIRTHDAY .
I WAS INFORMED THAT HIS WAS ON THE SAME DAY IN JANUARY 1932 AS MINE 
WHICH JUST HAPPENS TO BE MY BIRTHDAY AS WELL !  
THE TALE DOES NOT END THERE....IT GETS BETTER !  
HE SAID THAT HE WAS BORN AT 2-15 AM ON  THE SAME DAY  IN 1932.
AS I WAS BORN AT 1-30 AM ON THE SAME DAY IN 1932.

NOW THERE'S A THING!

 

WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF TWO PEOPLE
THAT HAD BEEN BORN WITHIN  3/4'S OF AN HOUR OF EACH OTHER 
EVER MEETING ?
FOR US IT WAS A CASE OF US BOTH.

" BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME"

YES ! IT IS A VERY SMALL WORLD...!!!!!

LAFFANKI WAS BORN "HOWARD PARKIN".

  LAFFANKI:-  (BORN:-  HOWARD PARKIN. JAN.1932) ;

IS NOW 83

NOW :- XX IT HAS JUST COME TO MY NOTICE THAT 

 

GOOGLE HAVE MADE A BIG MISTAKE IN THAT THEY HAVE REFERED 

 TO LAFFANKI AS "JOHN.E.PARKIN" WHICH HE IS NOT.........

& NEVER HAS BEEN ! 

  

 

AND HAS USED THE NAME OF "LAFFANKI" AS HIS

 

PROFESSIONAL NAME FOR ALL HIS ART PAINTINGS & SCULPTURES.

THE NAME OF "LAFFANKI" IS HIS INVENTION AND

SUBJECT TO COPYRIGHT. ALONG WITH ALL HIS WORK.

AND ANY PERSON OR ORGANISATION USING ANY OF THESE

ARE BREAKING THE LAW.

 

 

XX..THIS ERROR BY GOOGLE WAS FOUND BY LAFFANKI

 

 

 

LOOKING FOR REFERENCES TO HIS WORK ON GOOGLE

 

 

 

& FINDING "JOHN.E.PARKIN" LINKEDTO LAFFANKI...

 

THIS IMPLIED THAT "JOHN.E.P...." WAS THE CREATOR ...

OF ALL  LAFFANKI'S ART WHICH IS MISLEADING &

A LIE ! .....

 

 

LAFFANKI IS SOME WHAT MIFFED .......(UNDER-STATEMENT)

 

 

 

XX...( HOWARD HAS NEVER CEATED ANY ART WORK

 

 

 

& SIGNED IT IN THE NAME OF HOWARD PARKIN)

 

 

 

LAFFANKI IS THE ARTIST

 AT MY TIME OF LIFE.......

 ( 83 THIS JAN.2015 )

IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO GET INTO PRINT BEFORE THE ALZHEIMERS 
THINKS TO HAVE AGO AT ME!... 
THERES NO SINE OF ITT YETTI. THANK GOD !

HOWEVER THERE.........

ARE A FEW OUT THERE WHOTHINK OTHERWISE ! ! !

--------0--------

I HAVE INCLUDED ALL THIS INFOMATION BELOW SO YOU CAN 
SEE WHAT HAS LEAD UPTO  
 "THE ART YEARS".

& THE DEVELOPMENT OF...."LAFFANKI".

      --------0--------

          MY  EARLY LIFE :-     I STARTED OUT IN MY FATHER'S BUILDING  BUSINESS 
AT THE AGE OF 14 ....  FOR 2 QUID A WEEK
.. THATS £2. OLD MONEY ! 

AFTER BEING "CHUCKED" OUT OF SCHOOL ....AND NOT YET 14 !
FOR   NOT DOING MY HOME-WORK.! ! 


THIS WAS JUST AS WE STARTED UP AGAIN IN BUSINESS AFTER THE WAR
& I HAD TO DO ANYTHING.....& EVERY THING. 
RUNNING  ERRANDS AND   MAKE TEA; CLEAN OUT THE GRATE ..

I WAS PUT THROUGH MOST OF THE TRADES IN HOUSE  BUILDING FOR...
FOR 2 "QUID "A WEEK.....AND A GOOD JOB I WAS ...
AS   I CAN STILL DO A GOOD JOB OF MOST OF THE TRADES AT  83
(EXCEPT PLASTERING.....GOT MORE ON THE FLOOR & IN MY HAIR
THAN ON THE WALLS......QUITE A MESS , SO GAVE THAT A MISS !

 THIS PRACTICAL HANDS-ON HELPED ME DEVELOPE IN LOTS OF WAYS,
AND OVER THE YEARS , IN THE USE OF TOOLS.....I PROGRESSED THROUGH
THE FIRM TO BECOME M/D & SOLD OUT AFTER SOMETHING LIKE
35 YEARS IN THE BUSINESS.

 --------0-------

 

 

 

 

NOW :-THE  MOTOR RACING YEARS :-

 

 

 

 

AND RACING IN MY OWN NAME OF ....HOWARD PARKIN.

 

 

 

(LONG BEFORE THE ADVENT OF "LAFFANKI" ARTIST. )

 


  AT THE SAME TIME I MANAGED TO FIT IN 25 YEARS
  RACING CARS OF VARIOUS TYPES ,WITH SOME DEGREE OF SUCCESS.....
 
 PROGRESSING..... 
TO DESIGNING & BUILDING MY OWN CARS; 
THESE BECAME FAMOUS AS.........
"THE  CANNONBALL" 4 WHEEL DRIVE CARS ;

BUILDING A TOTAL OF 7 CARS
IN THE 1970 & 80'S.......

  COMPETING IN SPRINTS & HILL  CLIMBS ; AND CIRCUT RACING WITH
A PROTOYPE (PRE PRODUCTION ) LOTUS ELITE.
.
THIS WAS WHEN COLIN CHAPMAN WAS

BUIILDING THEM IN A COUPLE OF 
DOUBLE GARAGES..........A LONG TIME AGO ! 
  
  EVEN  DOING DRAG RACING...........WHEN IT WAS IN ITS EARL DAYS IN THE UK .  


AND WAS THE

2nd FAST MAN IN THE UK OVER THE STANDING  I/4 MILE.

"B- HELL THAT'S A VERY LONG TIME AGO....BY GEORGE" !
 
OVER THE RACING YEARS SETTING

68 FTD'S ( FASTEST TIME OF THE DAY ) 
AND HELD SPRINT & HILL CIMB RECORDS.

IT BECAME VERY DIFFICULT AT THE TOP LEVEL OF THE SPORT.........SO

I HAD TO MAKE THE BIG CHOICE ABOUT MY RACING......

--------0--------

 

 

I ASKED MYSELF THE QUESTION ?.......... DID I WANT TO BE

" A SMALL FROG IN A BIG POOL ...?

 

OR A BIG FROG IN SMALL POOL "?

SIMPLE:-  I WANTED TO BE THE BIG FROG......

(ALTOUGH I HAD BEEN OFFERED A WORKS DRIVE, SOME YEARS BEFORE.)

 I  NOW HAD TO MAKE A REALISTIC  DECISION.........

--------0-------

SO I THEN MOVED DOWN MARKET &

WENT INTO........* "AUTO-CROSS" RACING

AND THIS  BECAME MY FIELD OF ENDEVOR

   * "AUTO-CROSS"  WAS A FORM OF GRASS TRACK RACING ,

(NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH BANGER RACING)

"AUTO-CROSS"......RACING WAS  KILLED OFF A LOT OF YEARS AGO

 BY TELIVISED..... "RALLY-CROSS".....

--------0-------

 RACING   UNDER  MY OWN NAME OF HOWARD PARKIN

IN THE DAYS LONG BEFORE  " LAFFANKI"  THE ARTIST

CAME INTO BEING.

 I HAD THE BEST YEARS OF "AUTO-CROSS".

AND  DROVE IN THE  ...."SPECIALS CLASS" 

AS THIS WAS THE PREMIER CLASS

& WHERE THE ULTIMATE IS TO WIN

THE OUTRIGHT "FASTEST TIME OF THE DAY ".

SO I BUILT THE 4 WHEEL- DRIVE. "CANNONBALL" CARS.

 WINNING SOME 68 FASTEST TIMES OF THE DAY  AWARDS.

AND BACK IN THE 1970'S  I WAS REACHING SPEEDS OF

OVER  OF OVER 100 M.P.H ON GRASS.......

THAT IS A BIT LIKE DRIVING ON BALD TYRES ON ICE.....B....MAD ! !

       NOW...... 

 

MY "CANNONBALL" CARS BECAME SO FAST & ALMOST UNBEATABLE

 

 

 

TOTHE EXTENT THAT THE CONTROLLING BODY OF THE SPORT..........

 

 

 

PUT A 5 % PENALTY ON ME........SO THE 5% WAS ADDED TO MY TIME

 

 

 

AFTER I HAD FINISHED.........SO I HAD TO TRY TO CALCULATE

 

 

 

HOW FAR I HAD TO BE AHEAD OF MY NEAREST RIVAL

 

 

 

WHO WAS BEHIND ME..........

 

BUT I WAS STILL ABLE TO WIN 40% OF THE TIME .  

*AS FAR AS I CAN FIND OUT

I WAS THE ONLY RACING DRIVER IN THE UK

TO HAVE THIS SORT OF PENALTY   IMPOSED

IN MODERN TIMES

----------0---------

I WAS THE FIRST TO ADD 4 WHEEL STEERING & MAKE IT WORK

 SOME 35 YEARS BEFORE HONDA FISHED IT OUT AS THEIR IDEA ! ! !

 

 

   BONNET LOGO'S FOR THE "CANNONBALL" CARS. 

 

THIS IS THE DESIGN THAT I DID FOR MY CARS

 

IN THE EARLY.....1970'S

OF THE "CANNONBALL" & IS SELF EXPLANATORY......

4 WHEEL DRIVE WITH 4 WHEEL STEERING !

BECAME BRITISH AUTOCROSS CHAMPION......A COUPLE OF TIMES.

LIBRARY CAN GET IT FOR YOU......

----------0----------

THE AGRICULTURAL YEARS.

AT THE SAME TIME......

I BECAME INTERESTED IN THE DESIGN

& DEVELOPMENT OF A RANGE OF AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY...

 I NAMED THESE  AFTER THE "CANNONBALL" CARS 

BUT SHORTENED THE NAME  TO...."C-BEE" MACHINERY.

I HAD A FARE AMOUNT OF  SUCCESS :-

WITH GOOD SALES....

AND EXIBITED AT THE ROYAL AGRICULTRURAL SHOW 

AT STONELEIGH: RECEIVING A  "HIGHLY COMMENDED" AWARD 

FOR THE "C-BEE" ROTARY  HARROW..... 

THIS WAS MY REDESIGN & UPDATE OF A FORMER HORSE

DRAWN   MACHINE OF THE 1860'S .........

NOW MADE TO WORK BEHIND MODERN TRACTORS ;

  ON THE PRINCIPLE OF MAKING

THE GROUND WORK AGAINST ITSELF.

A VERY EFFECTIVE MACHINE....OF WHICH I SOLD OVER 700.

--------0--------

DURING THE AGRICULURAL YEARS ........ 

I BECAME THE SOLE UK IMPORTER 

FOR "FISKARS" PLOUGHS FROM FINLAND.....

AND  INTRODUCED TO THE UK.

THIS INCLUDED THEIR COMPETITION PLOUGHS.....(MATCH PLOUGHS )

SO I COULD SEE THE POSSIBILITES OF ME .......

BECOMING INVOLVED IN THIS DIRECTION.......

    I MUST SAY THAT I FOUND  THIS OF GREAT INTEREST. 

BASED ON MY WORK OVER THE YEARS WITH THE RACING CARS.

 ----------0---------

NOW...... AS "FISKARS" MATCH PLOUGH'S........ 

 

HAD ALREADY WON QUITE A NUMBER OF 

 

  PLOUGHING CHAMPIONSHIPS ON THE CONTINENT......

 

AND TO PROMOTE SALES OF "FISKAR" PLOUGHS

IN THIS COUNTRY...

IT WAS ONLY RIGHT THAT I SHOULD 

    SUPPORT  THE UK MATCH PLOUGH MEN & AS IT WAS MY

INTENSION TO TRY TO GET SOME OF THEM   TO USE....

"FISKAR'S" MATCH PLOUGHS ,BUT THEY WOULD TAKE

SOME CONVERTING........

SO I HAD TO DO A RETHINK & USE

A NEW APPROACH.........

 AND CHANGE A FEW ACCEPTED WAYS OF DOING THINGS.

I HAD TO FIND A NEW WAY....

 

YES ! I HADTO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX ......A LONG WAY OUT SIDE !

AND INSTEAD OF THE ACCEPTED WAY WITH  EXTENDED BEAMS

THAT FLEXED UNDER THE SIDE LOADS.  

 

BY USE MY 25 YEARS OF  EXPERIENCE

DESIGNING & BUILDING RACING CARS........

I WOULD GIVE  MY MATCH PLOUGHS A CHASSIS.   

THIS HAD TO BE :- ACCURATE & STABLE & FULLY ADJUSTABLE AT THE SAME TIME.

AS THE NORMAL FURROW WIDTH WAS 14 INCHES

&  WITH VERY LITTLE ADJUSTMENT AVAILABLE.......

 

I HAD TO MAKE MINE ADJUSTABLE FROM 13 TO 15.50  INCHES

WHICH I WAS ABLE TO ACHIEVE...... IN 1/4 " INCREASMENTS.

 I CREATED ANOTHER FIRST BY BEING ABLE  TO TUNE ........

THE AMOUNT OF TURN  THAT THE MOULDBOARD COULD EXERT

ON THE FURROW..................

NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME......

 A MATCH PLOUGH WAS FULLY TUNEABLE & ADJUSTABLE.

I  BECAME KNOWN AS "MISTER FISKARS"

THIS WAS ALSO VERY GOOD FOR BUSINESS....

MY "FISKARS SPECIALS".....

WENT ON TO WIN THE BRITISH PLOUGHING CHAMPIONSHIP

FOR SEVERAL YEARS....AND THERE ARE STILL SOME ARROUND .

ONE YEAR ; ONE OF MY MODIFIED MATCH PLOUGHS WAS USED BY

THE BRITISH TEAM & TOOK 2nd. PLACE IN THE WORLD PLOUGHING CHAMPIONSHIP.

----------0----------

AFTER A FEW YEARS........

 

I LOST THE FRANCHISE ......FOR "FISKARS".....

NOW :- AS I HAD INTRODUCED THEIR PLOUGHS TO THE UK...

FROM NOTHING......... IMPORTING THE FIRST.....( AT MY EXPENCE)

AND THEN BUILDING THE SALES UP TO OVER 200 UNITS PER YEAR.

I WAS NOT A HAPPY BUNNIE ! ! !

I WAS SUDDENLY CONSIDERED TOO SMALL A BUSINESS

FOR THEIR  NEW M/D  ! ! !

WHO HANDED MY FRANCHIE OVER TO ANOTHER FIRM.

WHO PROMPTLY WENT BUST ! ! !

AND I UNDERSTAND THAT FISKARS NEVER GOT PAID !

AND LOST £247,000..........

( IT IS A TRUE-ISUM THAT THERE IS ONE BORN EVERY MINUTE )

NO COMMENT.......

IT WAS NOW TIME TO MOVE ON.......SO I DID.

----------0----------

 

 THE ART YEARS:-

AND THE BEST PART OF MY LIFE......

THIS BECAME.....THE BIG MOVE :-  A CHANGE OF DIRECTION...

----------0----------

NOW  ...I HAD TAKEN TO DOING A LITTLE BUYING & SELLING OF ART & PAINTINGS

ONLY BECAUSE  I WAS , SO TO SPEAK AT  A LOOSE    END......

TRYING TO CLEAN THEM & REPAIR THEM....AND THEN TRADE THEM ON......

AND HOPE TO MAKE A FEW QUID ON THE WAY.....

IT WAS ONLY SOME TIME LATER THAT I FOUND OUT IT WAS CALLED "RESTORE" !

HOWEVER I WAS GLAD TO FIND I HAD DONE MY WORK MORE-OR-LESS  OK.

AND NOT MADE A MESS OF A PAINTING OR RUINED IT .....

----------0----------

 I NEEDED A HOLIDAY.....& AS I WAS NOW ON MY OWN 

 I  BOOKED  A FLIGHT TO TENERIFE WITH A VIEW 

 FIND SOMEWHERE TO LIVE OUT THERE IN THE SUN.

 I ARRIVED ON 10 th  NOVEMBER 1986 

 

NOW :- FATE IS A VERY STRANGE THING.....

  AND THIS WAS TO BE THE MOST IMPROTANT DAY OF MY LIFE.

I HAD JUST ARRIVED  AT THE HOTEL & IT WAS RAINING LIKE HELL;

THE GARDEN WAS FLOODED SO MUCH THAT THE POOL & GARDEN HAD BECOME ONE !

 

THEN....... I SPOTTED THIS VERY LOVELY RED HEAD......

"SHIRLEY"  I SOON FOUND  WAS RETURNING TO ENGLAND THE NEXT MORNING !

THIS CALLED FOR SOME SWIFT ACTION ON MY PART ! ! !

 

 "WILL DO ME THE HONOUR OF HAVING DINNER WITH ME" .

I TOOK "SHIRLEY" OUT FOR DINNER THAT EVENING .

TOOK HER TO THE AIRPORT THE NEXT DAY.....I RETURNEDTO THE UK IN  2 WEEKS. 

 

 ----------0----------

 

 IN 1987 WE OPENED.............................
 
" THE TOWER GALLERY OF FINE ARTS"........
 
  IN BOWNESS- ON- WINDERMERE.....
 
 
BY THIS TIME I HAD TAKEN SOME TRAINING IN   ART RESTORATION

 WITH GORDON WILLIAMS...........
 
THIS GAVE ME THE BASIC GROUNDING & UNDERSTANDING & BRUSH WORK

THAT MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO MOVE ON

 
  BECOMING.... "LAFFANKI"  ARTIST ......
 
XX- THIS IS THE ONLY ART TRAINING THAT I HAVE RECEIVED --XX
 
LAFFANKI IS A SELF TAUGHT  ARTIST AND SCULPTOR.
 
 
AFTER   SPENDING SEVERAL YEARS AS AN ART RESTORER
 
I FOUND THAT PEOPLE JUST DO NOT WANT
TO PAY FOR THE TIME & SKILL THAT GOES INTO THIS WORK.
   
SO....I NO LONGER DO THIS CLASS OF WORK.

----------0--------- 

 
 
 I STARTED "THE TOWER GALLERY OF FINE ARTS"...
IN BOWNESS-ON WINDERMERE
 
AND
 
  SHIRLEY RAN HER  "GALLERY - 2"  IN WINDERMERE.
 
 THESE WERE GREAT YEARS FOR US WORKING TOGETHER
& SEEING WHO COULD SELL THE MOST !
 
----------0----------
PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF 
THE NAME......"LAFFANKI"....
 
WHEN I WAS THINKING ABOUT BECOMING AN ARTIST....
A SPENT A FULL DAY  CONSIDERING.....
THE NAMES OF THE ARTISTS.....
 WHO HAD   "MADE IT".

THEY MOSTLY BECAME KNOWN BY A  SINGLE NAME.
THIS WAS THE WAY TO GO.....
 
 
 I REQUIRED A NAME THAT IS A SINGLE WORD 
 
I SPENT A LONG TIME.....THINKING  ABOUT A SINGLE NAME,
 
AND THIS HAD TO BE  DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER ARTIST....
 
 
  AND CAME UP WITH......
 
 "LAFFANKI"....
 
----------0---------
 
 
DECISION TIME FOR LAFFANKI....

ART IS A VERY COMPETITIVE MARKET .....
THERE ARE SO MANY VERY GOOD ARTISTS OUT THERE 
 
IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO BREAK IN AS AN ARTIST.
 
CREATING A GOOD PAINTING IS THE EASY  PART......
 
GETTING A GALLERY...... ANY GALLERY TO SHOW THEIR WORK
IS THE DIFFICULT PART.
  
LAFFANKI HAD DECIDED THAT TO GET ON AS AN ARTIST

 

 HE HAD TO BE DIFFERENT ! ! !
 
THERE WAS NO POINT  IN FOLLOWING  "THE FLOCK" !
 
LAFFANKI HAD TO "BREAK THE MOULD" & GO OUT ON A LIMB....
 
SO HE DID HIS OWN THING.........
 
AND THIS HAS PAID OFF.......................
 
LAFFANKI'S WORK JUST TOOK OFF ! ! !
 
BY THIS TIME  LAFFANKI ORIGINAL PAINTINGS
ARE  SELLING VERY WELL......
 
AS FAST AS HE COULD PAINT.........
 
----------0---------

 NOW...... ONE DAY  WHEN LAFFANKI HAD PAINTED

AND SOLD ABOUT 50 PICTURES......

 

A  CUSTOMER CAME INTO THE WINDERMERE GALLERY

AND ASKED IF I COULD PAINT ....

A "LADYBIRD " ON THE PICTURE IN THE WINDOW ?

AS HIS WIFE IS INTO LADYBIRDS.......

I SAID THAT I HAD NEVER PAINTED A LADYBIRD BEFORE

BUT I WILL.....TRY & DID.

AND PUT IT IN THE WINDOW THAT NIGHT......SO I DID...


  THEY CAME BACK THE NEXT DAY & MADE  THEIR PURCHASE....

GOING AWAY..... VERY SATISFIED......

 

 SOON AFTER A MAN RUSHED IN..... AS I WAS ABOUT TO CLOSE.

 

"THAT PICTURE THAT YOU HAD IN THE WINDOW.....

THE ONE WITH THE LADYBIRD ON ....I WANT IT " !

 

"SORRY IT'S SOLD"....

" WELL WILL YOU PLEASE PAINT A LADYBIRD

ON THAT ONE & I'LL BUY THAT"........

 

LAFFANKI'S.... LITTLE GREY SELLS WENT INTO OVERDRIVE......

YOU CAN BET  YOUR LITTLE GREY SOCKS HE WILL "

 

 NOW .....I HAD WHAT WE CALL...." A STICKER"......

THAT IS A PICTURE.....THAT HAS EVERYTHING GOING FOR IT.....

SUBJECT IS GOOD ; & IT WORKS AS A PAINTING.

THE FRAMING IS RIGHT FOR THE PICTURE.

AND...THE PRICE IS REASONABLE......

AND IT STILL DOES NOT SELL....." A STICKER "

SO I PUT..... 2 LADYBIRDS ON TO THIS.......

AND SOLD IT WITHIN THE HOUR......

SO ....  "NOW THERE'S A THING "  ! ! !

(THE LADYBIRD IS NOW PART OF LAFFANKI'S COPYRIGHT)

 

THE LADYBIRD HAS BEEN USED  ON......

ALL LAFFANKI'S PAINTINGS (AFTER THE FIRST 50)

 & SCULPTURES & CERAMICS.

SO THIS IS THE ANS. TO THE OFTEN ASKED QUESTION.....

OF HOW LAFFANKI CAME  TO USE THE LADYBIRD,

 

LAFFANKI HAS NOW PAINTED

OVER 650 PAINTINGS 

AND SOLD 98.4% AND STILL WORKING,,,,,

 

IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED NOW TAKE A LOOK
