Sweet View: Camden

Our latest addition to the Sweet View oeuvre is borough number 8: Camden. It's available to buy at now.

This is what the lines looked like.

This is me drawing them. I had to escape the Saturday throngs like a rat in a flood - by clambering upwards. I sat on that lonely wall for four self-conscious hours whilst tourists pointed and laughed and took photos of me.

Sweet View elsewhere

Did you see Sweet View in The Londonist?

And the interview with us on Makerhood?

And our piece about our favourite place in London, Scootercaffé, for This Is Your Kingdom?

And the interview on We Make London about our love of playing chess in the aforementioned Scootercaffé?

Next week we'll be part of the We Make London Summer Boutique in Hampstead. It's a pop-up shop opening for eight days on the 2nd July selling wares from "40 of the UK's most talented designer makers" and us. Charlotte and I are taking the first shift on Saturday - there'll be free flowing wine and Pimms from 6 if you feel inclined to visit us.

And on Sunday, 3rd July, we have a stall at Cally Fest (don't worry - it's "pop-up"). It will see Caledonian Road decked out with bunting and filled with live music, skateboarding, crafts, circus skills and all that stuff that the kids love. They'll also have the Wimbledon final on a big screen so Charlotte will inevitably spend the day hawk-eyeing the tennis leaving me to man our stall alone, no doubt while tourists point and laugh and take photos.

What I wore

This is what I wore one Sunday a while ago. As submitted to - but not as yet featured on - the What I Wore Today blog.
