SquidLondon in The Big Apple....

This trip brought SquidLondon back to its roots - MoMa was the
Squidders first destination. Wandering between Picasso, Dali,
Tinguely, Giacometti, Miro and Calder. Then there it was - taking over a
gigantic white wall - the Jackson Pollock inspiration. An artist from
the 1950's who dripped, in a dancing trance, colour splashes over
white canvases. "How 'awesome' would it be, if your clothes and
accessories would change colour (color) in the rain" - this is how the origin of
the Squidders idea started.

In a shopping enthusiasm the museums shops were attacked - one
after the other (resulting in several umbrella buys). If anyone thinks
London is a rainy place, a NYC thunder storm has to be experienced.
Check out the photo shoot in the rain - looks quite neat, the London
Skyline with the yellow cab in the back ground.

One last thing, while dancing to the beats of Michael Jackson's
thriller until dawn it has to be said that the Squidarella almost got
kicked out of the legendary night club "the Box". It was such a took up a whole chair!
