IT'S fRIDAY!!! 15th January 2020
I woke early this morning, whilst making a cup of tea I saw the smile on the side of the box. I'd just been reading the booklet: 'THE INTERVENTIONISTS Users manual for the creative disruption of everyday life'. So excited to read about others who I feel think along the same lines as myself. That is, observing the awful and making the best sense of it you can. http://www.gregorysholette.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Interventionists_03_14_041.pdf
So today I stick my tongue out at the drizzle and made a smile. Now how do I turn it into PDF for you to print off?

International Womans Day March 2019 participatory event
One of the passer by participants who was delighted to get involved with contributing towards creating this frida Kahlo portrait by painting a pixel with nail polish, apparently Frida used to paint with nail polish also from time to time.
The large campus advert below invited people to bring along their favourite nail polish or use one of mine. Frida is an icon to many, this Frida f ollower showed me Frida tattooed on her neck. The random nature of these events means you never know who you will meet by chance, Frida brought us together for this brief moment of a snapshot, it's interesting that our personal names were not exchanged, yet we felt connected enough to take snapshots to be uploaded to our instagram accounts, today's signature.
