World Cup 2018 illustrated moments 2

Egypt 0 – 1 Uruguay.

The most interesting part of this dull game was when Rodriguez came on and I quite liked the stylized 7 of his shirt. What is this font?

Ela Orleans, The Pastels

Cafe Oto, April 15th 2018

This was my dream gig. I hadn’t seen the Pastels play before, and I have loved their music for more than 30 years. For them to be playing with Ela Orleans promised to be the best thing ever. I was not disappointed. Ela Orleans did a ‘greatest hits’ set which was amazing, and then The Pastels took the stage and I thought I might cry because it was so beautiful.

Gwenno

Hoxton Hall 12 April 2018

I hadn’t been to Hoxton Hall since the mid 90s, I played there and it was falling to bits. I remember that a lot of the building was boarded up because it was unsafe, but now it’s been done up with lottery grants and is a fab place. Gwenno was perfect to play there. We saw her a while back at Moth Club and she was great, but this gig was outstanding. She tried to get everyone singing along in Cornish to her cheese song, but our London ears are unused to Cornish words so we mumbled along awkwardly.

In the day time I went to the North Korean graphic design exhibition at House of Illustration, and thought it’d be fun to attempt to draw Gwenno in the style of the North Korean poster art.

Women’s International Football

Eng 2 – 1 Wales

I was shouting at the telly cos this was so exciting! I was supporting England, but it really looked as though Wales scored, so it could (should?) have been 2-2. The Welsh goalie Laura O’Sullivan absolutely ruled the match. But, England won the game, so they now lead their group. Roll on France 2019!
