My volunteering experience in Thailand

Tuesday the 10th: Here I am, with my backpack ready to jump on the plane for Thailand. I was very much looking forward to sharing this experience with my best friend. She lives in France.
And there here we are in Bangkok.
After a crazy night in Bangkok (where we barely slept!), a car came to take us to the WFFT centre. The Centre was located within Thayang in the Phetchaburi province of Thailand about 160 km south of Bangkok. It was a fairly remote location, not far from a small village situated alongside a large lake.

“Taxi, taxi! ” it was 2.30pm in the afternoon in NYC, 40 degrees near fifth avenue. “Can we please go to Grand Soho hotel?” I said with my french accent.
The driver switched on the air conditioning and turned on the radio, it was Bill Evans, a soft, gentle jazz melody.

The collectives included artists such as Numskull, Beastman, Max berry, Bennett, Birdhat, Tom Ferson, Mark Alsweiler, Phibs and Daniel O’Toole, aka ‘Ears’.

tools / apps

I often get the question what tools/ apps I use.
Nowadays it’s important that you remain open to exploring new tools, this is part of the creative process, this is how you create your own style. It’s with experiments, iterations, attempts, trials, and errors that you will succeed.
The stereotype of artists sitting around and waiting for inspiration to strike them is not always true, you are much better off getting into a routine of working on your art hence why I started the onedrawingaday1 project.
