Man taking notes at the hypocenter
Utagawa Kuniyoshi, an artist probably everybody knows, but today was the first day I ever took note of him, heard his name, looking through a big book in Charlie's studio

and lots and lots of boats - all for Laura Guinan and Nico and Guthrie......hints of Redon, Goya, Durer, Daumier.....
these turtle people really remind me of Odilon Redon
and this reminds me of William Blake and Janmot

This young man made this 3D study for a sculpture he pans to make with real silver buckets; he gave me his exquisite drawing for Guthrie of a dullock (sp?) from Dr. Who; he loves Robert Gober and is very nice....
this is one of his pieces glued to his studio door
Charlie insisted I try one of these boat chocolates and surprise! There is a little chocolate cookie/biscuit underneath - yum - Laura, will try to bring a bar home for you and Nico!
