Context is important to any art student or practicing artist. Part of the enjoyment of my artist research is making the sketchbook to put it into. One day, I would love to learn to book bind and letter press this part of my practice properly, but for now, pritt stick and moleskins will suffice.

To fall asleep, we must entrust our surroundings completely and in a society paranoid to the extreme, this cultural normality contradicts the social mistrust paramount to city culture.

Well this is my first post on my redunculously NEW blog. I've never had one before but I have had many diaries. Hopefully this will be much more successful than any of those.
