Illustrations & designs I did this summer for Radstudio –a cool gift shop in Victoria Road, Saltaire.
I miss those years at Circulo de Bellas Artes (Madrid). You’d pay 15 euros a month and enjoy unlimited bandwith of life drawing sessions –Mon-Sat, 4 to 10 pm. I’ve been on both sides of the room, and if there is anything truthful, timeless and humble in the art thing, it must be something like that. But it wasn’t just that. It was also the people I met, Madrid, and my youth. (Everyday I’m a bit older –Myself)
I went to have a gander at Pick Me Up 2013 (I know, it was six months ago) because it is my favourite event of this kind so far. Apart from great stuff (Jean Julien, Daniel Frost, some great collectives) I really enjoyed meeting The Loop ladies, who were running a newspaper workshop for kids (and souls alike, because the attendants are mainly aspiring illustrators as I am). Check out their website cos it’s good stuff… theloop-news.com
