Every year in London there is the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.  Apparently anyone can enter their artwork and then it is selected by an art board.  Here are three that I thought were interesting.

Had to see this briliant illustrator who seems to sum up exactly what girls feel!  Her workbook is very detailed but she makes them very simple for an exhibition.  Cute colours.  Love the hair one at the end, swoosh your ponytail into a heart!  All very emotional and typically Pisces!

I’ve been wanting to photograph this for years and wondered where the venue was.  I went to Tama station on the Seibu Tamagawa line (from Musashi sakae station on the Chuo Line from Shinjuku).  I was prepared to do a lot of walking – took only about 15 minutes and nearly missed it.  From Tama station, I walked up to the train tracks (about 50 metres), crossed the track and trekked along Hitomi Highway for 15 minutes.  The road curves a little along the way.  When it meets the big junction with Tohachi Highway, turn into that and continue for 3 more roads on the right.  Its easy to miss but on the main road!

The Reversible Destiny Lofts were constructed in 2005 so they are now 9 years old.  The trees and shrubs obscure the facades (originally there was nothing) and I nearly missed it!  It looks slightly old but still in working order.  I was surprised that it was only 3 blocks – I thought there would an entire estate.

The only downside is that it has been directly built on a major highway so noise levels for those occupants must be everlasting!  Great article here on its construction.
