Finally got to see' The Moon and the Sledgehammer' at LSFF

Peter Trevelyan's 1971 documentary about a family living off-grid in rural Sussex, presented at London short film fest by Andrew K├Âtting. This is a pic of the Q&A afterwards. A gorgeous crisp 35mm print exuded life. The subjects speak in gently warbling dialect, scattered with folk rhyme, leg pulling and bafflement. Their woodland cottage is surrounded by many steam engine contraptions, crumbling vehicles, rosebushes and church organs. Particularly loved some close ups of beetles and bugs escaping a lumber saw.

Trolls scrubbing the VW

Another snapshot of the trolls I spent a weekend in Brighton with. Here they are in their shorts and wellies on a chilly October morning, spraying water around while I sit cosy in the van in my pyjamas.

Festive Daylight Music @ Union Chapel

Finally got myself to this concert called Daylight Music, held on Saturday afternoons in Islington's Union Chapel, with a different label / musicians featured each time. It was smashing having light to be able to draw at a gig, and even better because the choir was wearing all their fanciest chrimble knitwear. I think Fake Laugh with his poignant piano plinking was my favourite of the day, from a really top notch bill.

Hut life

Here's a drawing with words, summarising a recent short stay in Snowdonia. I think I included all the important bits... the internet was delivered by ethernet cable and just enough Mbps to stream radio :)
