I hope you're having a good weekend. It's been a very dark and rainy day here in London in contrast with yesterday which was cold but bright :). I decided to treat myself yesterday and headed off to the Barbican to see the Basquiat exhibition which was fantastic, (I've been really looking forward to this so it was great to finally go and well worth it!) As I was early I also popped in to see the John Akomfrah installation which was both thought provoking and mesmerising, well worth a look I would say. I always wish I had more time to go to more exhibitions, it's so important to see things and I am determined to find more time in future!
On another note I wanted to share some recent work I've completed for Cox and Kings Compass magazine. I created two illustrations, one for their letters page which was about an evening cruise on the Huangpu river, and the other is for an article about travelling with a huge supply of books. I really enjoyed drawing the Shanghai skyline, I hope you can recognise it! and I'm really happy with how the books illustration turned out. I loved drawing the old fashioned suitcase and I'm especially happy with the shoes (based on a pair of mine :)). The magazine is out soon and should be available on their website if you want to take a look and our not a member.
That's it for now. I'm back to working on a Christmas illustration whilst being all wrapped up with some huge woolly socks!
Hope you have a great weekend!
