Of all the Magic Man art I’ve done, this is the most personal to me, and also my favorite. I know we all squee at the sight of British things, but I didn’t do these London landmarks to be trendy. I visited London for the first time a year and a half ago, and it is one of the few places I’ve ever visited where I felt completely at home. I miss it every single day, and every time I listen to Nova Scotia…. I don’t know. It just reminds me of how I felt when I was there.
