I walk the line

Ten mile walk. Saxon shore, Kent. Ankle survived the test.
Also seen in Kent.
Make of it what you will.

Staring at the sea

Been spending time by the sea, the weather being unbelievably kind.
Pootled along the coast to Dungeness where serendipity and magic occurred.
Loving Folkestone, new bike et al...

Creatrix evening

It's been a while but I'm back. Walking again, drawing again. Friday night I met Sally Anne at the House of Illustration in Kings Cross where the fabulous Aline Kominsky was being interviewed by Sarah Lightman - a most inspiring and enjoyable event, well worth the trek. I also took in the Comix Creatrix exhibition featuring work by 100 women artists – too many to list here but it includes Claire Bretecher, Tove Jansson, Posy Simmonds, Julie Doucet, Kate Beaton, Donya Todd and Isabel Greenberg... What a delight to see a page from the amazing Lynda Barry's 1980's Girls and Boys, examine Aline K's tiny artwork, discover Brigid Deacon's Burns-eque Coma Deep and find a fetish comic from the 1950s that looks so ahead of its time... Surprisingly few familiar faces and a fair amount of guys at the talk but Corinne Pearlman, Lee Kennedy and Wallis Eates helped make it more of a Ladeez night.
