  1. I have a framed print of the John Newman pencil drawing of the School of Arts, on Stanley Street, Townsville, N.Q. When was that actually drawn?

    1. Hi John sorry about the delay but better late than never! The drawing of the School of Arts building in Stanley Street Townsville was done in the mid to late eighties. I attended high school across the road in the background when it was The Townsville State High from 1962 to 1964. I sketched it from the other side of Stanley Street.

      I am now living in NZ and sold all the prints from my Aussie drawings before I left Australia.

      Thanks for your enquiry.



    1. I’m glad you like the drawing “Visitors NQ” The house was in Boundary Street in South Townsville in North Queensland on the Southern side of the road. It is a typical timber and tin ‘Queenslander’ and I expect it is still there although I haven’t been there for a few years. I drew it from across the road in 1989/90 when I lived S/West of Bowen 200 Klms South of Townsville. I now live in New Zealand. Cheers. John

      1. It has a pencil title ‘Cool as a Queenslander’ limited edition 453/600 lithograph print 1993 of a Queenslander with palms in front. I can’t find any other title. It has your bio on the back.

      2. Hi Peta, does the picture have a woman standing on the verandah of the house? Any chance you could photograph the picture and email it to me? Is it a painting or a pencil drawing or pen and ink? I think it is one of a house in Hermit Park in Townsville North Queensland the entire edition of six hundred sold out but I can’t be sure unless I see it. I have had many print editions over the years and I can’t recall all of them, I’m sorry to be so vague! If I see it I will remember. Cheers John

  2. I was wondering how much the prints are worth as I have come acoss three in mint condition

    1. I’m sorry Jodine I have no idea other than to let you know that when they were available they sold for ten dollars each. You could advertise to buy some on the internet, there are about thirty different images, and may become collectors items eventually? I’m sorry I have no plans to die soon either which may have helped raise the value of them!? The pencil drawings were never limited editions. Good luck John

  3. I just purchase a gorgeous little framed set of your sketches off a lady at a “garage sale” … absolutely gorgeous.. I love your attention to detail its so mind boggling for someone like myself that has not one artistic bone in my body… but I certainly can appreciate 🙂

    1. Thanks Carol I am glad that you are enjoying the prints you bought. It gives me joy when people express their appreciation of my
      So a big thanks to you! Cheers John

  4. Hi John
    I have just found three of your beautiful pencil drawing prints at an Op Shop in Maryborough Qld and just LOVE them. They are “Chatting” Queensland; Visitors N.Q. And ‘Wolverton’. I am a lover of old colonial Queenslander houses and your drawings really show their fantastic character.
    Cheers for now. Donna. 😊

    1. Thanks Donna for the compliments, I am glad that you are enjoying the drawings there are many wonderful homes in Australia. I live in Gisborne NZ at present and there are also many beautiful timber houses here. I live in one. Cheers John
