Breakfast, Blossoms & Bubbles / by Kate England

Blossoms at the square. Mariatorget, Stockholm 

I walked by this tree in bloom, on my way to Magnolia. A moment of intense beauty in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city in the early morning. Click, click, click, frozen moments...

Café Magnolia is an art gallery with a café, bar, restaurant and flower shop. Meeting fellow artists for breakfast combined with a talk (what a good idea). llustrator Ingrid Flygare talked about the digital landscape for illustrators, animators and graphic designers, and the emerging markets for graphics for games, apps, ebooks, and digital toys. Revitalising and interesting. 

There was talk of arranging a course in After Effects, and meeting for coffee. So good to break out of the solitary bubble of freelance work.
