    Evening Manisha.

    I loved the end of your travelogue - the concession to the tragedy of McQueen's suicide - and the denial of the inhabitants - the world of fashion moving on in all its haughty finery... Loads of thumbnails, Manisha - you're as 'head down' and getting on with it as I've come to expect. There is something highly theatrical, almost fierce and purposefully intimidating about McQueen's stuff; his women are like priestesses. I was just wondering about the locale of your city - you've put it somewhere green and pleasant, but I wonder if that's quite right: weren't McQueen's creations like exotic animals in an otherwise grey world? Wasn't his appeal that he put extraordinary things in the vision of ordinary people? I just wonder if his city wouldn't make more sense if it blazed out of somewhere much more ordinary, more humdrum, more 'daily life?'

    I'm interested to see you now push your ideas onto the concept art stage - and I'm interested too to see if you're somehow able to include that darkness you write about so poetically - the suicide place - can you deal with the gap between appearance and reality within the composition of your digital set?
