Nice nibbles and a nice cat in NYC.

Ink drawing: The auctioneer at Bloomsbury, NYC.


I was at a benefit auction of prints for Manhattan Graphics Studio in Bloomsbury’s auction house, NYC. It was good fun and I was bidding for a lovely piece by Carol Wax. It was at the end of a very long and hard day at the International Print Fair and I was shattered and managed to get a seat at the front, but there was only the auctioneer in front of me so I drew him and he carried on regardless – a real pro!Very up-market nibbles here and the auction raised loads of money, but I was outbid. The drawing is in Faber Castell Pitt pens into my Tate Postcard sketchbook.

We met a lovely cat earlier in the day; the studio cat at Solo Originals gallery – a little chubby Siamese cross, very affectionate. The owner was also very nice and showed us around the studio which had genuine Bavarian litho stones still being used.
