Long post incoming!! I went to the V&A this saturday and thought I'd share some pictures of the things I loved.

It is absolutely enormous and even though I spent about 4 hours there I think I only saw about a third of everything in the museum! I was going to go to the Alexander McQueen exhibition but seeing as there were timed slots I decided not to go and to wander around the museum instead. Which was a good decision as I saw so many amazing things! First off, just look at this for an entrance. The Rotunda Chandelier by Chihuly is an amazing sight. And it weighs more than 1500 kilo's!

Name Change!

Decided i'm going to keep this blog updated after my time in London too, to keep myself motivated and keep whoever is interested updated on what I get up to! So it only seems logical to change the name then too! Also; just two more weeks until I go back home again! Time has flown by.. I will be doing more London related posts though! X

Masterclass with Alexis Deacon!

Yesterday I had a masterclass with Alexis Deacon at House of Illustration! It was part of ELCAF and a great day! I will definitly be going back to House of Illustration too as they have some great exhibitions at the moment and their shop is a treasure trove full of wonderfully illustrated books, including some of Alexis Deacons!

London Illustrators - Clare Halifax

Clare Halifax is one of Print Club's artists, I saw her work on the first day of my internship there in the gallery and was amazed by the detail and the skill that goes into her screenprints. Some of her prints are absolutely massive and I always get distracted when I see them at Print Club because there is just so much to look at!

Tate Modern

This post is a little late as it was quite a whhile ago that I went to the Tate Modern but I still wanted to post about it! I met up with Lotte from the HKU who is studying/living in Dundee at the moment as she was having a weekend in London. Not only was it great to see a familiar face but we also had a lovely afternoon walking around the museum and seeing all there was to see. Also there was an installaton that matched the colour of my hair!

I've been thinking of other things to post on this blog for a while. And since I have made a long list of illustrators and artist who's work I really like since I've been in London I thought I might as well highlight some of them!

So first one; Lorna Scobie.
