Méjico Por Favor

My home in Puebla for a month was a four-storey 1939 colonial Mexican California-style compound, newly coated in bright red paint, and shared with five other artists and a musician.

Undone Book Club #5

Undone Book Club #5

After quite a long hiatus, Undone Book Club is back for 2016! Yay! We have two books on the go this time, as there was some aversion to too many auto/biographies (“but there’s so many good ones!” we cry), but it was hard to look past reading My Life on the Road, which…
