I visited both the Serpentine Gallery Popeye Series private view and the Victoria and Albert Museum Jeff Koons talk over the last couple of days. I met Mr Koons at both events and he was very kind and generous with his time. He signed several books for me including the cover of a Sotheby's sale catalogue dedicated to the Michael Jackson and Bubbles sculpture auction in 2001.

An instant 'assisted readymade' !

I thought the show was fantastic too!!
