London Times: Sketchbook Magazine Pop Up


I am a sad Clare this morning as yesterday I found out that my trip to Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore has been cancelled, we were supposed to be leaving tomorrow so the half packed suitcase in the middle of my room is just taunting me now. BUT at least I can vote now! I hope everything settles down in Thailand soon for everyone there, it must be awful.

Anyways, mini rant over, I finally made it down to Sketchbook Magazine's Pop Up Shop! It was only a brief visit, but enough to look around all of the underground rooms that they had to offer, entirely covered in doodles, sketches and artwork.

I love the office style drawings that cover the walls, I think it's the black an white that enamour me so. There's also a little bit of tweet left on the whiteboard!

I adore the little pictures of all the staff at Sketchbook by Laura Callaghan, her style of drawing is my ideal.

Wafa, the editor and founder of Sketchbook, is not only incredibly talented but is also incredibly lovely, everyone should try and get down to Sketchbook's Pop Up events, Susie Bubble is doing a talk on the 13th of May which you should go to if you can! Check out their blog for more details.

  2. Oh, I wish I could go! I've been drooling over all of these gorgeous images of the pop up shop. Unfortunately, there's absolutely no chance of me getting there, as I have no time for a trip to London at the moment. I'm hoping there will be some exciting things to visit in the summer though, as I have lots of free time then!
    Hope you are feeling a bit better my dear
