EMMA HOWLAND: London, UK 

In London I am currently interning at Eastside Educational Trust, a non-profit fine arts program that helps facilitate workshops in schools across London. I help in the office and also go on location to these workshops as a teachers assistant. Here is a photo taken at a primary school in North west London in the last week of January. We helped the kids make a full-size Chinese dragon for New Years out of willow, cellophane, and tissue paper. image

Emma Howland (London, England) 
I’m feeling a little limited without my paints, but I managed to bust out this little short a little over a month ago. I started doodling this on the train back from Edinburgh recalling a moment earlier that day when I was feeling particularly vulnerable due to a bad mix of culture shock and being pelted by freezing rain and wind. I originally drew this for a laugh but now, a month later, I see value in it as a self portrait too.

While in London I’ve become interested in work sites for reasons I can’t explain. I like the textures and the way materials and tools are haphazardly left lying or leaning. Many of my pictures (like the two above) have been of construction.

DALLAS CRUICKSHANK (writing from England)

Hello, all! While abroad, I’ve been working a lot with watercolor, because it is so easily transportable. As my professors know well, its hard for me to work on smaller scales, so I’ve mostly been drawing little doodles in my sketchbook. I am becoming a little more homesick as the program goes along, so I’ve been making pen and watercolor cards to sent to friends and family. Here are two cards I am just about to send home! 

Best, 

Gabby

Some neon text I stumbled across in Strasbourg, France. A very cool find. Not too much street art here just a few scribbled tags here and there but I hope to discover some more.

More neon lighting in Strasbourg, France! I am a huge fan of neon text (yay Tracey Emin). This is just an establishment’s neon light, not on the street. L’autel hotel means the alter hotel. You can see a bit of an inverted cross off to the right, fun stuff. I have been doodling a bit but I am making my way to an art store asap to find some cheap paints or even colored pencils. I made the mistake of just bringing along a small sketchbook and pencils, I need some color! In the meantime I will upload some random photos which I do take a lot of. Hope all is well guys!
