After four solid days and fifty thousand doodlers later, its over, I'm exhausted! We had Latin Americas biggest rock band playing us out and now i need a massive rest! Sophie, Shane and Karl from Onedotzero have been amazing, as have all the event management guys, Gonzalez and Peter et al, it's been the best Doodlearth so far and I'm looking forward to coming back to London for Doodelarth meets Onedotzero at the BFI festival in November. Watch this space!

They came, they saw, they doodled! Yesterday was insane - thousands of people came through the doodlearth room all day long until there wasn't a blank space left. By five o clock, pens were in short supply, and I had to run to the nearest shop and get what I could, the guy behind the counter thought I was nuts as I tried to explain that I needed 200 pesos worth of pens. After a quick break in the square eating steak, listening to some jazz and watching the tango, it was back to the doodle where my new friend Airel was keeping guard (he's the bearded dude in the Metallica tshirt).

If you happen to be in Argentina over the next few days, come along to the onedotzero festival in the Recoleta Cultural centre, where im hanging out drawing with local artists for the Buenos Aires leg of Doodlearth. I'll be posting lots more pictures of the event as the days go by. The folks from onedotzero are keeping a blog too...www.onedotzero.com/blog
I did this on my first week in New York city, aching to go out and have fun i had to control my urges. This was supposed to be in last weeks paper but it got delayed. It for an article in the travel section of the Saturday Times about a trip up the Amazon.
