Today Takako and Sophie came and we started drawing each other. Then Hilary and Sarah came in and Sarah talked about the ideas the project had given her so far. Hilary then started to take notes of points she thought were salient, and Takako drew Sarah.

I decided to try putting all the writing and drawing up on the wall to see if that might enable us to keep a record of what we were doing, and enhance the discussion. The space was instantly transformed into and art school studio like environment, and drew a lot more attention from passers by.

Two women came in with their young children and we drew them and carried on talking. I was amazed at how the girl I was drawing was so excited by the drawing and recognised herself and her mother. It was a beautiful moment for me.
