Degree show build

Some shoddy snaps of the degree show build at Kingston's Knights Park. The show has now been packed up and moved to LBi on Brick Lane. It is open all weekend with goods on sale and alot of amazing work on the walls. Creative Review did a nice little review about it on their blog

Just dug out a clutch of drawings done at the Royal College of Music during the cold snap some months back. The awesome Stephen Fowler wangled permission for us to sneak into rehearsals to draw some of the RMC students. It was a fairly impressive start to the day though one session of intense violin mania was somewhat painful.

I'm moving!

Well sort of. I'm opening up another blog at it will be remarkably like this one (it currently is exactly like this one) but under a different name. pen with pencil will still be functioning and they will remain identical for a while. Go have a gander as and when or choose to ignore this wholeheartedly. It just seems polite to mention it.
