A New Beginning

So as most of you readers know I am embarking on a postgraduate MA course in Book Arts at the University of the Arts, London (Camberwell College) - It started this week and the past few days have been filled with new things. Meeting new people, new routes through London, navigating new buildings and discovering new cafes (very important!), being given so much information about the coming year that my brain hasn't quite been able to take it all in yet.
Yesterday all the visual art MA students, full and part time, met. Amongst the part-timers on my course I finally got to meet an old internet friend! Mandy (aka Feltbug) and I have been 'contacts' on Flickr for what must be years and it was so good to meet her yesterday and know that we will be following this course together. Check out her work, its very interesting.



So anyway, new starts. The picture above is of my new backpack (a must have when potentially travelling to and from college with a laptop and books); it looks so cool, I just hope it lasts for a long time. The image below is of a book I am reading at the moment which I picked up from the South London Gallery's bookshop, and the two mini sketchbook/notepads I bought from the university's art shop for a bargain price of 40p each....


Right, so now I am planning a trip to a private view tonight with my new classmates and also want to go to the uni library to discover the wonders within... busy busy...

have fun with the studies (despite all the letters I drag after my name, I've never been enrolled on campus - so I'm rather jealous of all the great relationships... and cafes you'll encounter!)

thanks Louise!

Ronnie; long distance study huh? I think mine will be a balance between campus and my own studio, for now I am just loving the library! and discovering the canteen is expensive so I may as well go to the nice cafe next door...!

It all sounds very exciting and reminds me of when I started my MA. Enjoy it :-) Good luck!
