Exploring Illustrated London

I recently came back from a 5 day trip to London, where I visited my niece Olivia. While I was there I hopped on the tube to Shoreditch and went to see the new Nobrow gallery/shop and also the East Gallery on Brick lane, which is showing an illustration exhibition entitled 'Play'. I loved both, especially Sarah Abbott's work at East Gallery. I remember seeing her work at last years mmu degree show and it was amazing.
A highlight of my trip was visiting the YCN shop & library down Rivington St. Recommend a visit if you are in the area. I bought one of their quarterly magazines, 'Ideas Illustrated,' which I enjoyed reading on the train back to Manchester.
