UK: Dying for one’s art

L'Homme - Insert punchline by Tim Constable, The Arches, BristolBreakdancing Jesus by Cosmo Sarson - Hamilton House, BristolOn the way to the Christmas Steps in Bristol, I photographed a bits of few previously unseen street art to add to the ‘International Street Art’ book that I’m writing in my head. The Penang chapter was completed last June. The Singapore section will be very, very thin.

I sat on the steps near Colston Street until the cold forced me down the hill to the café to defrost with a hot coffee and a disappointing sausage baguette. A second attempt was going well until my lines became uncontrollably squiggly from shivering. Mrs M said I should buy some proper clothes.
