today went to the stéphane blanquet exhibition, at span art gallery , running (deiberately) simultaneously with my exhibition - we’re both doing book-signings in our respective galleries on the same day too (this saturday) - so, ironically, it seemed like bad planning, giving us little opportunity to meet - but, by good fortune, he arrived at the gallery soon after me : )

the show is really impressive - unlike myself, stéphane is a work-a-holic - two hours before due to catch his flight to tokyo he was still working on another canvas for the exhibition - i asked if he could sign a book (amongst the bagful i bought) and unexpectedly he spent the next 15 minutes or so making an elaborate drawing for me : D

i also got to meet yotsuya simon , famous japanese doll artist and teacher, who was popping into the gallery on business
