New York

So i couldn't put up all my photos from New York so here's a small selection. Unfortunately the slideshow has made them a little murky :( but you get the jist.
It was such an inspiration, we visited loads of places and met some lovely people. While we were there we made meetings with and agency called Lindgren and Smith, organised by our tutors. Vault 49 a creative design agency. Who took their time to look through our portfolios and give us advice and let us know of their experience with setting up a design agency and moving to New York. If you're ever in New York, check out MF Gallery, a lowbrow gallery in brooklyn and run two lovely people with awesome artistic taste. These two were so friendly and helped us realise that we need to get back to doing work for ourselves and that it doesn't always need to be commercial. I appreciate it guys :) So if you're in the area check the link out and pop in and say hi. The last but not least was 3x3 magazine. The gentleman was so friendly, informative and to the point. He doesn't mince his words and this is such a good thing to have in industry because you know where u stand with him and the advice he gives is honest and appropriate. This magazine was the first illustration/ art magazine i picked up and it was an honour to meet the gentleman behind it. We did loads, way too much to mention in one post but before i forget if you ever get chance to visit the lovely New York, go away from the tourist attractions and down the side streets, visit bowery meets 2nd Ave and watch a performance by Saint Hollywood. The group are so friendly and made us feel at home. Their singing voices are amazing and acting skills are awesome. They give off a brilliant performance, down to earth and slightly strange but entertaining. Check them out! Also go into brooklyn, where u can find Williamsburg (full of little alternative shops, fun characters, and graffiti) and check out the place that time forgot (Coney Island.) It's like walking into an old photograph full of memories of the seaside and funfair attractions with typography everywhere :) Anyways I've spoken quite a while so i best go... toodles :)
