Aste Nagusia, Bilbao.

We arrived in Bilbao on 22nd August, to find out that there was all kinds of things going on as part of a huge 10 day fiesta, celebrating the end of summer Basque style.
There were thousands of people on the streets, partying all day and night!
We saw amazing fireworks every night, street performances, parades, chess competitions, cooking competitions, live was so much fun :)
You can find out more about this wonderful fiesta here and here.

Back in cold cold London...

I'm now back from sunny Spain. It was GREAT! So good to get away from it all and immerse myself in a different culture - really stimulating and inspiring. I'm slowly getting myself back to reality, sorting through all my bits and pieces and trying to catch up with everything.
I did a few quick sketches for Gemma's "What I wore today" - a bit different to my normal style of collage, but it's good to try something a little different :)

...I don't much like this new green colour for the type, I want the old colours back...
