My 'vector art' project is coming along nicely and I also squeezed in a visit to the temple of worship for all creative people - a little place called Hobbycraft. Now I am not a religious person but when I enter through those glistening doors I am sure I hear angels calling. I warn you though, enter at your peril, for I went in search of 'silver leaf' and returned home with a large bag full of lots of other things and an empty purse! I think the devil is working there in disguise!!
There was interesting developments in the art world yesterday! Those of you who pay taxes (hands up please) will be thrilled to hear that artists who receive thousands of pounds of tax payers money thought it would be fun to gate crash the summer party at Tate Britain and dump buckets of crude oil all over the place in protest of the Tate's sponsorship ties with BP. Apparantly this is called 'Conceptual Art'. My main problem with this is that they are protesting against a company that without their support these 'artists' wouldn't have the money to be able to express their political-art. Well fear not NW London but Love Coffee & Art will not be joining the Conceptual Art band wagon - there might be the odd coffee spillage but it will be contained and cleared quickly without harm to the environment or wildlife, or my postman! Check out my Youtube video link to a very funny sketch about BP and a coffee spill!
