Back in March I blogged about some street art in Middle Row, W10.  Now I’m not sure if I missed this other piece because it’s so subtle, or whether it was added at a later date… but, either way, here it is.  You can find it in Conlan Street, W10, just round the corner from Middle Row.  Not very good photos I’m afraid, there were cars parked directly in front of it which was a nuisance!

Terribly disorganised today and haven’t scanned anything in, but I’ve been busy working on some drawings this week and trying to make headway on a project I started in August. Here’s a work in progress shot.


Yes, my dog is absolutely judging me…

Going way back in history for this one as I recently rediscovered the photographs I took in 2009 of this piece by CodeFC.  It used to be in Warfield Road, NW10.  Sadly it’s no longer there, but I thought I’d feature it anyway as a piece of street art I once loved and lost!

Aaah, back to my normal routine and so there hasn’t been much time or opportunity for sketching.  Sad days.  I did go to see La Boheme last week, as performed by Opera Loki, and had vague intentions of sketching the audience while I was watching…but the performance was too engaging and my sketching fell by the wayside.  I’ve only ever seen opera once before and it nearly put me off for life (it was The Nose, in a live broadcast from the New York Met) but my friend Laura tempted me to give it another go.  Strong work there Laura, I’m now a happy convert!  If you want to see what happened the last time I went to see a performance arranged by Laura then click here.
