… there is nothing quite like a new sable across the canvas…
Euan Uglow, artist
On Site today
Today I came in from the blustery weather having written a beautiful line of Helvetica Light Condensed and chatted to a chap fitting the hand rails to the ramp to the WC… it was 11am in Lee, London.
‘My brother was a signwriter y’know…’
He mentioned how he now works in vinyl and hates the work.
‘It’s soulless… The brush is such a beautiful thing…’ I replied.
‘That’s exactly what he says… I bought him his first set of brushes… Swans … Goose… ‘ He continued musing a while.
‘Ah quills… they’re the best… I’ll wager he’ll come back to it one day…’
He then went and made me possibly the best tea of the decade.
