V&A WTF


The V&A have decided to ban people from sketching at its temporary exhibits. This means that rich boomers, Chinese tourists and Knightsbridge ladies-that-lunch will be able to amble unobstructed. Gotta admit that this has nasty political overtones to it.

Above is a scan of a drawing I did in 1990 as a foundation student at Camberwell Art School. This was my first trip to the institution. And I'm still doodling after all these years even as the system increasingly emphasises the stupidity and futility of any creative endeavour.

Net-worth people: How do you think those artworks you pay billions for came into being?
