Art & Photography: East London Mornings

Katya Katkova started East London Mornings, an art and photography project, as a way to pay tribute to East London independent coffee shops ("home to musicians, artists, photographers, and all those creative types for whom 9 to 5 is not an option"). Katkova invited a group of artists and illustrators—including Jonathan Chadwick, Veronica Wood, Besheer Abbaro, Emily Wallis, and Neri Ishida—to contribute a drawing, painting, or watercolor of their favorite cafes in East London; her ultimate goal is to publish an art guide to the neighborhood. For more information, go to East London Mornings.
