Whenever I go back to my home town my Mum and I always go walking on the beach near where I grew up. On a recent visit it was a beautiful evening so we went down to the sea. On our way we came across a man called Ian and his dog called Max. Ian got made redundant a few months ago but instead of trying to find a new job he sold up and decided to walk the English coastline with a friend. He had come from Great Yarmouth via Brighton and was heading down to Cornwall. He has no plans to return to what was once home.

We went to The Princess on the canal for Lula's birthday- it was great. It's good to know there are still pubs that have not been ripped apart in the spirit of gentrification. They played REM on repeat, a south american guy fell in love with Lara and there guard dogs on the roof. In fact, there were dogs of all shapes and sizes everywhere. Clapton dancing to its own rhythm.

I hardly ever receive anything exciting in the post these days and a surprise package from Fred Butler is about as good as it gets! I did a very small favour for her and in return received a kaleidiscopic postcard and a
beautiful piece from her collection which was totally over generous but will be loved for years to come.
If you have not seen the genius world that Fred creates look at her website

Yesterday Mark and Marko had a day of music that festival goers around the globe would've paid serious money for- and it was all free in the pulsating heart of Clapton, aka MKII.
Not only was there incredible music by the IC, Smiley's Speakeasy, **k, Duke Garwood, She Keeps Bees and Alexander Tucker but exotic men in shorts cooked culinary delights, there was table tennis, good looking girls made strong drinks and there were beautiful drapes hand printed by Milena Silvano.
Check out their website www.claptonisgood.com.

I have an exhibition of landscapes at Paul Smith's Globe from the 5th-22nd August.
I don't think I will get a chance to see unless anyone wants to send me on an amazing commission flying from Terminal 5!
Special thanks to Sylvia Farago and Nathaniel, Jo and Alison at Paul Smith
and to Touch Digital for the beautiful prints, www.touchdigital.co.uk
