This Windy Weekend



Bits and pieces from this windy weekend: prints, ceramics and other covetable things at the Art & Design Market Day down at Britomart. Olympic madness - I'm loving it this time round (can't remember a thing about the last two). This morning L and I lay in a pile of pillows and blankets and watched it for three whole hours. He particularly liked the very small staunch women weightlifters but found the dressage boring. I always like watching the gymnastics and anything else involving pointed feet. But what is it with that hideous magenta Olympics logo and strange spiky typeface? Yuck. And the popularity of neon shoes? I'm looking forward to all of it, getting us through the next few rainy winter weeks.

Hi, Carla, here, no one beats the other, (if this is what I understood you said) I tell you something.
many years ago I published political humor in a magazine in my country, there was no internet, at least here, I'm talking over 35 years ago then, early in the morning, I bought the newspapers and read the news, then I made jokes that drew and then took to the editor. OK, with the same story, there were 2 or 3 artists who did the same joke, and this is because to the same stimulus, creative people agree in their ideas, and they get to the same result.
So, Carla, you do your drawing,please!!! :)))
Byeeeeeeeeeee
