Many of you might think that I travel world scouting out coffee shops, book stores, and art supply shops for my living. Well, almost true.
A few weeks ago I stumbled into this shop on a quiet corner off Tottenham Court Road in London. I dropped over 30 quid in the next few minutes and had a great conversation with Adam Lewis, the store’s manager. For a small store it was very well stocked. One of my purchases was the Pentel Arts Pocket Brush Pen–I love it!
Not only did it have a great selection of artist materials, it was neat, clean, and nice to look at. If ever in London check it out, London Graphic Centre, 13 Tottenham St. W1T 2AH, 0207 637 2199.
Adam recommended that I go to their main store in Covent Garden. This is the flagship store. Actually this is the MOTHER SHIP of all art supply stores. I honestly have never seen anything like it anywhere. I had to take a deep breath. Fortunately, I had spent my art supply budget that week, and could only look. It’s a good thing. If you are ever in London check out both stores. It will be worth your time.
