quickly had to pop into shoreditch today, couldn’t pass through without some quick snaps.
tucked around the back of walthamstow there’s a drinking place, called the wild card brewery. a brewery which was founded on the back of a hobby that got way out of hand! this was our destination yesterday. just across the road however was the stunning gods own junk yard. a wondrous neon delight. if you are ever in walthamstow you MUST go and have an nose. in the meantime feast your eyes on these!

june kicks off a lot of blogging events. some of which i have been to before, some of which i wish i had gone to but couldn’t. next year i tell myself, next year. this year however i decided that i wouldn’t attend one that i have for a few years now but still take some time out to wander around the wondrous streets of shoreditch catching up on what has happened to the vibrant walls over the last couple of months. this totally included a sit down with a glass of prosecco at the end of it, with some wonderful blogging friends who had attended the event.
yesterday evening i attended a book launch at the pace gallery in soho. street art, book art. it is the follow-up book to street art, fine art, which was published in 2014 documenting the extraordinary dulwich outdoor street art gallery. 15 of the original street artists that took part in the project with ingrid beazly, were given copies of the book with blank white covers. they were left to their own devises.
the beginning of april didn’t start so well. nanny minnie had another fall. a bad one too. she broke her hip and her wrist. she is 94 next month, so the mere thought of a double operation was frightening, the reality pretty sickening. hanging around the hospital waiting to see if she got through the op was just too much, so i picked myself up and went for wander around shoreditch to give me a distraction, clear my thoughts and build my strength for when i returned. street art always seems to have a calming effect on me.View Post
