Postcard from New York

 Recently I was in New York for an event my husband was attending, a sort of works trip with some sight seeing thrown in for good measure.  I have always wanted to go the States and New York being somewhere we have talked about but only ever dreamed of. It was all I imagined and more, BIG, beautiful and visually stimulating.  With all it's gargantuan size, I was perhaps more inspired by the smaller unexpected gem moments,  a cat shop where you can go in and adopt a cat there and then, a tiny toy shop selling the quirkiest of vintage toys, an odd collectors shop full of curios and Batman and the Incredible Hulk wandering the streets around Times Square.  These moments have given me further ideas for narratives in my work. I've shared some in their early germination in my sketchbook.
