    I discovered Blake's paintings via Red Dragon.

    There's a modern art gallery in Munich which is so great compared to the Tate Modern.

    Tate Modern it feels like they've deliberately picked the most grey brown beige stuff ever made.

    That's a stupid essay. Completely inane.

    The Pompidou is one million times better too in every conceivable way. Tate modern is just a place for good looking art students to check one another out.

    It definitely attracts the best looking people of all the galleries in London.

    Blake is also relatable cos he's actually really bad at drawing. Like some of his pictures are really off. The tiger springs to mind but theres a few others. Like that tigers head is a proper piece of shit.

    You can see he worked at it later on, the geometry and spatial proportions of the body, probably cos his clients told him he was shit. You can see that he spent ages on getting those bodies exactly right and symmetrical. They're so overworked, but something new happens cos of that. Like, his drawing of Newton with the compass, that's basically what he was doing himself on all those muscle pictures.

    Also in a lot of the illuminated books, he has loads of shit in between the letters and writing, like loads of completely unnecessary flourishes and little things going on, that piss over what is already pretty tricky to read. Basically doodling. But you get into em after a while, they start to become their own thing. But yeah, for him to add all that, it's like sheer joy of creation, or perhaps distraction, but it's very relatable

    I like all the squiggles. Beautiful handwriting too.
