Across the road from the Modern Institute is Plan B Books.. at first all I saw was a little sign saying ‘cafe’ as it was nearing 4pm, and I turn into a monster if I don’t have a cup of tea in the afternoon. I abandoned the gallery tour and beetled across the road into the small dark entrance..it was like entering another world: the room was full of people all hushed and hunched over drawing pads in total concentration all working away.. The man at the desk and I whispered that I would like a cup of tea and etc etc and he whispered back what on earth was going on
This was the world of Cosmic Designs and I had stumbled across a 24 hour Comic Drawing Marathon. Check out the facebook page of

Going from the Modern Institute to this could not have been a greater contrast..a tiny crowded space, lots of people concentrating and creating.. with an emphasis on stuff by the people for the people.
