Vivian Maier: what an inspiring photographer!

Didn’t even know she existed until a few months ago, when I bought an online illustration course and the teacher mentioned her as one of his artistic influence.

I hadn’t even realized there was an exhibition of her work near Lisbon and I almost missed it, but luckily it was extended until next Tuesday.

Microblog Mondays: adventures in coloring

View on Instagram

I normally feel very comfortable with my grey hair but life felt so grey with lockdown ( though in my line of work we can’t really work remotely) that I felt the need for a bit of colour to cheer me up. So I decided to try and dye my hair at home. I was a bit worried because my hair is so curly, I wondered if I would be able to cover it evenly.

The day after I bought the dye, they announced the hairdressers were going to reopen the week after, but you have to make an appointment and hairdressers are fully booked until July.

So this Sunday I managed to make some time for experiment and I am quite happy with the result.

Plus the red colour lifts my spirits up.
