On good Friday we went through* to Glasgow to see the Frank Quitely exhibition ‘The art of comics’. Frank Quitely is a Scottish comic artist that has done lots of DC comics stuff including Batman and Superman (and one part of Neil Gaiman’s sandman) and since Milo is all about the superheroes, we thought they would like it. Clearly we were not the only ones thinking this as it was overrun with kids. Unfortunately those kids were mostly not getting what they expected – it’s definitely an exhibition for adults, apart from some small dressing up and drawing bits it’s all pictures on walls, gallery style. Ours were actually ok with that but I also bumped into someone I used to work with whose kids are 6 and 9 and they lasted about 20 minutes. Would definitely recommend for adults though. It’s on until October.
It was a good day out though, the boys played in the skatepark in Kelvingrove park, and we found the yarnbombed bench in the Glasgow Botanics (which I will bog separately) and had lunch and coffeeandcake. And of course, trains are still somewhat of a novelty.
* It was drawn to my attention recently that talking about going ‘through’ to Glasgow is an Edinburgh thing and doesn’t exist the other way. It seems logical to me because neither city is North or South of the other so no up or down. (incidentally, I’m also always going down to London, none of that going up to capitals nonsense. It’s purely geographical)
