ULU, Malet Street: Saturday, 5.05pm | Limited Edition | 50 x 70 cm illustration


Pre-pandemic paddling
Things are almost back to normal after COVID-19; sadly some things have changed and can never be the same. One unfortunate result of the pandemic was the closure of many swimming pools; among them the lovely 33-metre pool at the University of London. I created this as a way to remember the glorious chaos of the Tuesday and Saturday evening sessions at ULU on Malet Street; the stressing to get in on time to avoid the numbers cut-off; tension and giggles caused by appalling lane etiquette in Lane 2; the ‘fragrant’ changing rooms (which sometimes even had running water!) and drinks and pizza afterward at the TCR bar (food hygiene rating regularly monitored by a Simon Golding) before hitting Soho and the night spiralling out of control. Here’s to many happy memories….
