I am still very proud of the work that I created for the exhibition and enjoying seeing it up around my parents place. I will also have some of it (what I haven't sold, given away) when I finally settle in a place to live. I also love the photos I took when I gatecrashed an event in Southbank.

Every time I open up my blog to see how it actually looks in real time, I am reminded of a phase in my life when I fell in love with a place in London. Actually, I lie, I still love the place. Where is this place? Well, I have photos throughout my blog and posts about it.... it's the Southbank skate park and Leake Road. I love the fact that things change every time that I am there, the graffiti can change on an hourly basis or yearly basis. Watching the artists at their work is amazing, there is skill in using those spray cans - layers of paint and textures, crisp outlines and sharp colours.
Being a tourist, I only get a glimpse of the life of the skate park once or twice a year. One of the niggles (for me), is that the life of the park goes through phases. This could be due to the bigger picture of the skate park or London. This doesn't sound like much, but wandering around you get a sense of how loved the place is at that moment in time. The last time I was there, people were busy trying to save the park and fingers crossed they have achieved this. I have been done during the year of the London Olympics and the golden jubilee, it was nice to see graffiti up representing us as a British nation.
