The Neon Life

The downside to learning about art through painting ‘graffiti’ rather than traditional academic study is talking about my personal work is difficult. I lack the vocabulary to engage in high-brow discussion with the ‘bow-tie’ crowd. 161 more words

Cafe of the week: The Kettle Black


The Kettle Black is one of those places that you remember for not only the food but the architecture and design.
