Today I hopped off the boat at 2pm, got a lift to the station and caught a train to the big bad city. Walked across London among desperate looking masses displaced from the underground trains and on to the Forbidden Planet to see Jim Mahfood and Scott Campbell. I am not going to the Supreme Broship opening tomorrow night which was my plan so I made an effort to see them today. I bought some great, great stuff and got it signed and drawn on and came home with some cracking art pictured below at WJC HQ. Thanks chaps.
See the show, get the books. Say 'Hi' to those guys from me.

I used to copy pictures of Samurai from books as a nipper, which turned out to be Kuniyoshi's. Then at college I found a book of his Warrior Prints and copied them all over again. I went to the (now finished) exhibition a week or so ago and saw the prints in the flesh. Flipping lovely too.
I copied an image from 1979 for yesterdays post, here's one copied from 1851.
