On Queen’s Diamond Jubilee again~ I'm glad to have chance to visit different exhibitions about the Queen. In the supermarkets, I found packaging of some products has been changed into attractive retro style. Kellogg's is one of those, and so do Colgate, the toothpaste : )

Received a booklet of Dulwich Festival and I was struggling at home....Serious headache and 'never enough' rest....I left home finally and visited some of the artist's home, scattered around in Dulwich. I was happy to chat with some of the artists and their works were inspiring to me, although I could not afford to buy ones...
It is an event likes 'Fotanian' in Hong Kong. However, it is so expensive and tiny for artists to work at home. Some artists rent a 'flat' in the industrial building. And during the days of 'Fotanian', we'd pick a map and visit their open studio. It surprised one of the British artists, yeah...it is quite different here : )

I am glad to sit in the Stella's presentation, about birth of Jean Tu and study of Character design, at Central Saint Martins last week. She hoped to punch me on the stage when I asked her very 'PolyU-styled' question. It is good to think, haha!

At the time I arrived London and studying some European illustration history, the Victorian style illustration interested me. I bought the indian ink and let make fun with it. It is relaxing to keep drawing the fine lines, although it looks detailed.

It was my 1st assessment at college this week. We carried all the journals, sketchbooks, paper works, finished and unfinished works for assessment. Fingers crossed, everything will be fine : )
Time to work on other things at home, when the sketchbooks are not by my side.

I must share my friend, Ryan's travel log to you (http://www.woulditbenice.com/). He is now travelling with his bike. When I told him I had an idea to study overseas in the beginning of last year, he told me he is going to travel around the world~ I was really excited to hear that, and we understand each other without hesitation and totally support. We kept talking about our preparation after movie, and we started our count down to my study and his travel.
Actually we do not come from rich family, we earned some extra money from freelances and we don't pursue material life. We accept any possibility and just GO AHEAD. As just always mentioned by our boss, 'Open your eyes'. Yes, we hope to see and feel more, if we have chance. Just plan without regret. What we are seeing here is not as fantastic as in the kaleidoscope, but we appreciate and understand the culture in different cities. Wonderful things could happen in small towns, not only in rich cities.
Sometimes, we are disappointed by some 'cultural' people in the front, only explain the world with their perception and assumption...without trying to experience, understand and appreciate the others' culture.
Put down yourself, and you will see more.
There should be more, other than gossip, jealousy...and looking down...

Because Olympics in London, there are many changes in this city. Seats in the Tube have been renewed (finally...it was very dirty...) and you'd see some ads advising passengers to keep the train clean. But, this one is a bit rude to me although it is creative...Passengers will look at the small text and the editors will rethink what they are doing..What do other Londoners and travelers think of this?

There is no perfect city, without problem...
