The first Summer Solstice Scrawl Crawl in London
I moved a car load of stuff to our little London house last Friday. It broke down as we got to London in the pouring rain. I must have broken the record for how much you can fit into a teeny Citroen C1 and the fan belt went. All mended now.
Yesterday, the longest day, I cycled from our new home near Brick Lane to the South Bank, near Waterloo Bridge to meet the British SCBWI illustrator coordinator for a day of walking and sketching along the Thames and into the City.
It's great to share processes and see just how different we respond to similar things. And as I said on FB, it's a little like yoga - you stretch in ways you forget about when you're bent over your regular work.
