Someone has created a brilliant interactive map of Ukiyo-e prints showing the locations depicted in prints by Utagawa Hiroshige.

Edited: With a little bit of searching I’ve just found out that it was created by a computer science undergraduate called George.

Well done George, and thank you!

Black Swan Art Car Boot Sale

I’ll be at the Black Swan’s Summer Art Car Boot sale, at the Old Cattle Market Car Park in Frome, on Sunday 16th July. This is a wonderful event, one of my favourites every year. It is a great opportunity to meet over 50 artists and makers, and you can buy art direct from the artists without paying a commission. If you are looking for affordable art, this is the place to buy it.
