London Graphics Studio

If you follow me on Twitter (and you should, by the way) or have followed this site for any length of time you’ll know I’m a big big fan of Andrea Joseph. Her art is beautiful and fun and warm and wonderful. On Saturday Andrea, along with a couple of other very talented sketchers, was in Covent Garden taking part in an event organised by Moleskine and Urban Sketchers.

I couldn’t get to that event but was in London for work yesterday so took the opportunity to go to London Graphic Centre to have a look at one of Andrea’s sketches and several others that were being displayed in the shop. It was lovely to see some in the flesh, so-to-speak. London Graphic Centre is a great shop too, with a great range of art supplies, notebooks and pens. You will be seeing some items purchased from there appearing here in coming months.

Continuing the arty theme, I frequently link to S. Jane Mills’s lovely Quote Monday paintings. It turns out they are available as prints/postcards/cards/stickets/t-shirts. I bought some postcards (too keep me going until I can spend a little more) and the quality is excellent. Shipping to the UK is reasonable too. So you have no excuse for not buying some from Redbubble.

Finally, Alan Hurley, another amazing artist posted this triptych to Instagram. Talent isn’t enough without dedication and practise.
