Gym People

very quick sketches.  I never thought I'd enjoy the gym, and I don't really, its pretty boring but the one I go to is underground and close and I don't mind it too much. I do enjoy a game of squash tho.


Nucleus

The Goonies art show at Gallery Nucleus opened last night.. some pre opening pics from curator and wonderful artist Seb Mesnard.

Falls

Some pics from Niagara Falls earlier in the year with a Frankenstein thing.





Arlen

I'd been wanting to read Michael Arlen's ghost/thriller collection but it was cheaper to buy the two volumes that the stories appear in and his Gothic/satire novel, all good so far.  I like this mix of good spooky stuff and witty dandy/comedy of manners stuff  The titles sound like Morrissey songs.

Alice


I had sketched this page while rereading this the other day and ended up working on it further tho I have no intention of doing any other Alice pages.

Food

A last post of some of the places I ate.. The Townsman being my favorite restaurant
after Stir. Hopefully I'll get some sketches up this week. Off to celebrate my sisters birthday and mothers day.  The first time I went to Boston I was nearly pulled off my motorcycle outside a liquor store by bunch of guys grabbing for the case of beer in a bad part of town where I was staying at a friends loft. That part of town has been a little transformed these days and umm I probably ate better on this trip too.










Stuff

It wasn't all work in Boston tho, I managed to find the time to pick up a few things


Boston

Some random pics from around Boston. The first being the room from my hotel room overlooking the Charles River.


















Stir

Another highlight was Stir (I travelled with a food and travel writer/chef).  Seating only 10 people its a small space with the chef doing demonstrations between courses in this case, being a 5 course seafood dinner, there was fish and seafood filleting going on. In very close quarters it could be uncomfortable but everyone was pretty cool and it was a lot of fun. It was so tight I didn't feel comfortable having my good camera at the table since being fairly clumsy I figured I might to some damage so I just snapped some phone photos. The food was pretty incredible with the tuna and bronzini (not pictured) being my favorite.
