London Design Festival: DIY Art Market / 倫敦手作創意市集

I went to the DIY Art Market with my classmates today. It was a lot of fun! I met and chatted with the artists there and of course, bought some fantastic artworks and products.

我今天和同學去倫敦參加一場創意市集。在市集有試著與藝術家和創作者們聊天,當然也買了一些很棒的創作商品。

(活動網址:DIY Market

I bought one card, two little notebooks from the illustrator, Sandra Dieckmann, and a tote bag which had mean words on it: “Oh great. Another tote.” by Mean Mail. (I decided to buy the tote bag as I was a person who called myself a “tote bag expert” ha ha!)

我向一位插畫家:Sandra Dieckmann 買了一張卡片、兩本筆記本。也和一家叫做Mean Mail的品牌買了一個上面寫著:「噢太棒了。另一個帆布袋」的帆布袋。(既然我自稱「帆布袋專家」,二話不說馬上買下來!)

It was a great honour to chat with Sandra. She’s very kind, friendly, and willing to share her drawing technique and experience with me. The most important thing was: I love her work so much! They’re warm-hearted, touching and vital.

插畫家Sandra是一位非常友善且願意分享繪圖經驗的德國人,目前已出版過一本繪本。她的作品靈感來自於家鄉附近的一片大森林,所以筆下的角色都是動物,富有溫暖的的生命色彩。向她詢問作畫方式的時候,她非常樂意分享自己的方法且侃侃而談。能與她聊天和請益真開心!(這段中文和英文內容差很多喔XD)

Here are the links to the artists’ website:

Please take a look if you’re interested in their work!

By the way, I think I have to say this here:

I think learning should not be limited at school. Everything we do and everyone we meet every day can be a source of learning, especially for creative workers or students. Getting inspired by the things in life is important for artists and those who need inspiration for their works. As a result, don’t be surprised to see me keep going to London or wandering around the world! (This is actually what I want to say! Ha ha!)

另外,我想要在這裡提一件事:

我認為學習不應該僅限於學校。我們每天所做的事、遇見的人事物,都是學習的資源。而這一點對於創意工作者或學生而言,尤其重要。因為「生活」就是創作的靈感來源。

也因此,如果看到我常常在旅行或在世界各地遊走,請不要大驚小怪喔!(其實我只是想說這句話而已啦哈哈哈!)
