I’m going to try to keep this one short, for your sake and mine.
Woke up, went to the Slade, tried to upload pictures to blog as promised but WordPress said I ran out of space so I bought more space to please all you good good people with my pictures, then I ate a sandwich (sup Russie), then I took the the Tube to Old Street and went to Artwords and BookArtBookShop, two bookstores that one of my tutors suggested I have a look at given my appreciate for the book as art. Great decision. Spent at least an hour at BookArtBook Shop (didn’t get anything….) and 20 minutes at Artwords (got a book about the map in art). I was too cold and too tired to wander around East London so I decided to head back but then I saw an art supply store and bought not one but two self healing mats (A1 and A5 sizes). It was a good deal! And I signed up to win a 500 pound gift card to that art store. I hope I win. Can’t wait to go back to East London to explore Shoreditch, Spitalfields, etc. I loved the streets I walked (only 4)–they reminded me of Greenwich Village. Then I went back to the studio and cleaned up my area and cut paper for a while and shared the fudge I won yesterday with my studiomates on the condition that they give me the box back. They were happy to eat them. I was going to do my HiattChat shift from the studio but I was craving pasta so I went home. And now I’m here. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. I’m going to bed.
