The second thing is that a friend of mine, a very talented friend, a suspiciously autistic-natured friend, held a private view this evening of his most recent illustrations. His name is Jim Stoten, and the exhibition is called Studies of Another Place which runs until September 25 at Super Superficial, Fouberts Place, London.
Of the work he's got on show is a piece measuring just A2 in size but which took 3 years to finish (not the one above). This might sound a touch self-indulgent until you see the style – the most intricate pen work with fantastic designs within fantastic designs. Really rather special.
