Chance Encounter

And sketched in history!

Thanks to Mike Pickard, a fellow Newton user, for this wonderful contribution dating back to 1999. Mike happened to sit next to someone called Sarah, who he'd never met before, on an aeroplane flight. She said she was an artist, he asked 'can you draw me on this', handed over the MP2000 and the rest is history. The sketch has been sitting on Mike's Newt ever since. It's got real depth and a nice story.It was drawn using a plain Note by someone who hadn't touched a Newt before - amazing really.

Mike's a writer, see his book at: 


  1. Very cool, love the back story on this one.

  2. Dean - thanks for commenting. Yes it's a cool story, we can all envisage it happening.

    Do send in one of your own sometime!


Please email to be added to the list of contributors or email me your GIFs, JPEGS, screenshots etc and I'll upload them for you. Alternatively contact me and send me a print out or fax. Or if all else fails I may be able to send you a Newton compatible flash card to copy your creations onto and send back to me. Last but not least I'll fly over and collect them..
