Apologies for the lack of recent entries... straight after New Designers I went to Phuket for 2 weeks and Hong Kong for 3 (glorious) days! It was my first time in Asia and the whole trip really inspired me...there are so many ideas floating around in my mind, as soon as I'm back home I intend to delve into them!
Hong Kong is wonderful...I want to be back there now! I love the constant heat that feels like walking inside a hot cloud. I love the red taxis and how good they look next to all the green trees and plants. I love the way the city suddenly blends into trees and mountains as you get further out, and just how the mountains are always there in the distance, these lovely soft lilac shapes. My Grandad was based in Kowloon in the 1950s and has told me so much about that time and place, that the night I arrived and saw the mountains all around me from the taxi window I felt like I had entered one of his stories.
I've taken lots of pictures on the Diana+ and we also bought a Supersampler from the Lomography shop on Hollywood Rd in Hong Kong, so it will be exciting to see what those pictures look like. I also took a sketchbook with me, so once I'm reunited with my scanner I will post some of the images and comic strips I've started drawing.
