Seattle and The Andrew Wyeth Retrospective.

I had the pleasure to accompany Mike Dutton up to Seattle to see The Andrew Wyeth retrospective. I only had half a day to look around Pioneer Square and make a few studies. I liked what I saw! The Wyeth display was sensational. I left the show dizzy, deciding to draw a few of the museums permanent collection.

Peter Parr visits!

The Tenderloin

The Tenderloin district in San Fran (Named after several theories: New York district, corrupt police saying, the loins of the prostitutes or the shape of the area). Here's all I saw in one go. Hidden gem is "The Magazine" shop on Larkin which Robert Crumb frequented. The owners have been there 45 years and give a free Crumb poster if asked. Most shocking thing I saw was an amputee with huge knife in his belt. Completely illegal and instant arrest in London.

5 days in Mexico City
