2009 In Picture Postcards - Lazy Oaf






"SO I have picked My Trip to Pictoplasma Berlin In march 2009. This is an annual Character convention, where everything has a face and people talk about drawing and creating characters. The city is also filled with pop up  exhibitions all over Berlin, my idea of heaven. I love Berlin too and went with two of my favourite people Chris Knight from Concrete Hermit and Ian Stevenson. The trip was a hallucinogenic journey minus the drugs everywhere you turned there was some creature looming over you. There was much beer swilling, food eating, and I met a barman who was a German double of Keanu Reeves from the Bill and Ted era."

i just opened a letter from my brother in los angeles and he sent me something from lazy oaf but the envelope was broken into-i have a pink and black lazy oaf drawstring bag with no contents-i thought it was a small irony to mention as i immediately thought of her picture postcard when opening the envelope! now i have to tell my brother his present to me got stolen!
