Since Karthik and I met Esther at a @creativemorning talk early this year, we have had the pleasure of visiting Esther and Dikko’s studio twice and my fondness for them grows tenfold every time I see them. I am learning so much about the city, its history, new cultures, and getting to hear so many hilarious anecdotes from chatting with them, all the while eating great amounts of delicious scones, thanks to Esther.
They moved into a new studio a few months ago and I have had the opportunity to take some pictures of their old studio as well as the space they are in now. These are some photos of their old studio just days before their move. Definitely check out @purgatorypiepress for some incredible and engaging work in print. Their studio is truly such a fantastic place, Im thrilled to share these pictures.
I worry sometimes if off late I come off sounding so negative. If a majority of the things on my mind are bummers. That I’m a bummer. Worrying, being sensitive etc.
It could also be because of this time I’m taking to go over, and revisit the uncomfortable things in my mind and life. I’m more non-confrontational than dealing with what and who’s bothering me kinda person, so this is really a difficult and important time of self reflection for me. But I’m trying to power though. Revisiting some old angers and injustices, trying to let them go, make sense of it, not make sense of it, but basically to move on cleanly. If that’s possible. And it also has come to mean, revisiting painful memories that bring back a flood of emotions and sadness. But like they say - *the only way is through.*
