Super sweet blogging award and a lot else

This is going to be long. I was so excited I got nominated by Oxford Lady for something I didn’t even know existed, I have questions to answer and everything. So I shall nominate Genre Cookshop, because it’s pretty much the only blog I read on a vaguely regular basis. I’m awful at doing that.

Cookies or cake? mostly cookies >; cake, unless it’s carrot cake.
Chocolate or vanilla? for what?! Ice cream? Chocolate. Cake? Depends. Cookies? Probably vanilla. I can’t think of anything else.
Favourite sweet treat? ooh…nice ice cream. Or jelly beans.
When do you crave sweet things the most? when I’m tired.
If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? I already get called jelly belly, I think that’s enough!

More good things… I have feedback from assessment, and it’s lovely. Feedback makes me happy.

Yesterday I handed in my Sketchbook Project 2013 at the Brooklyn Art Library (special day trip, just for that), goodbye sketchbook. My 2012 book was back at the library so I got to see that again. If I’m ever back in Brooklyn I have a library card now too. There was so much lovely stationery, I could have spent a fortune. But didn’t. I got described as “an artist from the UK”, which doesn’t happen often! Folded out 2012 sketchbook and the manifesto that (possibly) got me into ECA.

I have a lot of phenomena, which is why this is going to be so damn huge. I was looking up things about the subway yesterday, might add that in another time. Unless you desperately want to know the number of trains currently being used, or the busiest station in 1994.
