so I may be exhibiting some foxies in a show for a couple of days in Brussels in October. that's quite nice news! it seems i'm wanted more outside of my own country than it in.
any excuse to get away from here would be nice.
but my day was made a bit better by this event: (before.. turning quite bad.. enforcing my hiding era which started since last week)
I got on a train to go home from Meryls house and decided I wanted to sit near one of those large tables with seats for four people so I could get out my sketchbook and draw. I sat on my own for most of the trip but around half way through I had to move so that two adults and their kid could sit around the table with me. The child seemed nice enough though too bored to look at anything else but me drawing while making idle conversation with their parents to make the trip go by faster. So after a while the child asks their mum if they have any paper or pens, to which they reply no, and luckily one of my headphones had fallen out of my ear accidentally and I didn't bother to put it back in again before this happened. I thought this would be a brilliant chance to put forward some art power and so I ripped a sheet out my book and gave them a pen to keep.
I felt slightly good about it regardless of what I was promoting.. drawing maybe, art maybe.. I wonder if the child will keep on doing it.. wouldn't that be quite cool.
