Ohhhh this is so nice. Last November, while you were perhaps been toiling away at a tax return or flicking numb-eyed through the Argos catalogue that you found on the bus, friends and occasional artistic collaborators Michael Crowe and Lenka Clayton were up to something very special indeed. Every day in November Michael and Lenka would create one drawing of something they had witnessed first hand that day, using only a typewriter as their medium.
The results are a meltingly pleasant and touching collection of some of the sweetest, most honest images you’ll see in a long time. In one picture, Michael (i’m guessing, could be Lenka) describes waking up, rolling a dice, and landing a six, “surely an omen for a good day.” You can see them all here.
