Back to Trafalgar



I returned to Trafalgar Square and the National Portrait Gallery to get another fix of László. I love this painter and feel that his work, as well as the quantity of it, is absolutely stunning. I'm hoping to continue my research on Philip Alexius de László and I would recommend the exhibit to anyone. It is due to close on Sept 5th 2010.

On a different note - Another figure I feel respect for is the Anime director Satoshi Kon. I loved all four of the films that I saw, which featured repeating themes or ideas throughout a diverse range of projects. He passed away at the young age of 46 on Tuesday earlier this week due to pancreatic cancer. I hope that his next film, The Dream Machine will be fully executed as he would have wished. Rest in peace, a terrible loss, he will be missed.
