As the weather warms up in London, being outside becomes so much more compelling and, I have more excuses to pause and take note of the sights around me. Here are some from the past week. All the visual stimulation is motivating me to procrastinate less on making (hence the first photo above) – an extra win!

That's Lusungu in one of his new Creativity and Noise Brazil World Cup tees. We found that tropical backdrop at Shoreditch Food Village. Below, the entrance to London's Ace Hotel – a super cool space to work and no doubt staycation in (wishlist!). Below right: beautiful mirrored patterning at the Brick Lane Jamme Masjid.

A sobering warning from the bees. I actually witnessed the graffiti artist finishing this piece in Shoreditch. It's a pretty long wall, this is probably less than a quarter of it. Below left – I love yellow and I love flowers. These were in Boxpark near the pop-up Cotton's caribbean restaurant. Below right – I kept noticing this pattern on several housing blocks in East London.

Finally checked out the Southbank Centre roof garden. I also caught this beautiful typography at the end of the Alchemy South Asia festival. Below left – kitsch colourful ceilings in Edmonton!
