The Tenderloin

The Tenderloin district in San Fran (Named after several theories: New York district, corrupt police saying, the loins of the prostitutes or the shape of the area). Here's all I saw in one go. Hidden gem is "The Magazine" shop on Larkin which Robert Crumb frequented. The owners have been there 45 years and give a free Crumb poster if asked. Most shocking thing I saw was an amputee with huge knife in his belt. Completely illegal and instant arrest in London.

5 days in Mexico City

Sprawling. Vibrant. Humbling. From Frida Kahlo's Cobalt blue garden to the street life. Wonderful place and wonderful people. My sketchbook entries:

A cracking weekend in LA to see Matt Jones' exhibition. We even managed a few hours painting Venice and The Warehouse District, as well as navigating Downtown LA. Thanks to Chris Flynn for the surprise pic!

Bessie Coleman

In 1922 Bessie Coleman flew in the face of sexism & racial prejudice to become the first black woman to earn a pilot's license. Because flying schools in the United States denied her entry she taught herself French and moved to France, earning her license in just seven months. Coleman specialised in stunt flying and parachuting, earning a living barnstorming and performing aerial tricks. She died in 1926 whilst rehearsing for a show. She was 34. Here's my animated logo running on the homepage on her birthday, January 26th.
