furniture day at the studio

Hello! I am hopelessly behind on everything at the moment, but at least I'm getting a decent place to work now! The first time Gary came over to my place for supper, he was shocked at how little space I'd been working in. I lived in Russia for a couple years, and I always justified it by thinking, well, in Moscow, you'd have six people living in here and one of them would be an artist, so why should I have a problem? But it meant Stuart was always living in the middle of a studio, which wasn't so nice for him (or me).

Here's a quick sketch I did with my fountain pen of Viviane waiting for the IKEA van to pull up with our new cabinets and bookshelves.



We spent most of the day doing flat pack gymnastics.



Oh, and one more of Gary and Viv having a light sabre duel:



Don't forget about Caption comics festival in Oxford this weekend! Come listen to my talk on Sunday about comics and picture book cross-overs, I'll need all the support I can get!

Wow, even from just a picture of the corner of your new studio, it looks like it is coming together. It looks really cozy! (Aside from strewn boxes and Ikea stuff)

Also, Viv's sweater is great looking!

Viv endlessly impresses me with her craft skills! Yes, it's fun seeing it coming together. Still a few things to work out, but it's all very exciting. :-)

Hey Sarah,
S. and I are thinking of coming on Sunday...we thought we'd missed Caption completely!
Either way, good luck...see you soon!

And since there doesn't seem to be any contact details on the site, I miss entered my email address on their site, there doesn't seem to be a way to log in using openid, I would have to create an account there just to tell them ... Pah! fed up with this.
