It’s been an emotional day for me today. I was diagnosed with severe and deep-seated Endometriosis in 2017, and in November of that year, I was told I urgently needed surgery. I was put on what are essentially chemotherapy drugs for prostate cancer, to stop further damage while I waited for said surgery. … More I stood on the edge of a black hole
Funny isn’t it, how easily blasé one can become? I wrote most of this is in NY, in December (2017!). Now I think “Grand Central Station. Wow!”, I long for the thrill of being there. Such an iconic place. Yet I appear to have written this like I’d just popped down to the corner shop? … More Neon erections and trains with no destination: NY Pt5
Having written my first blog post in months yesterday, I found myself last night, back on my art adventures, and with another post brewing. On tour with a British orchestra, in transit in Miami. I knew there was a Louise Bourgeois Exhibition at ICAMiami and had therefore tried to fly twenty-four hours earlier, … More Pink Fur and Vulvas
A rather remiss absence of blogging of late, and obviously sitting on an aeroplane to Cartagena (Colombia) via Miami seems a good time to get back to it! To say a lot has happened is an understatement… I’ll give you a vague flavour. I’ve lived with my parents for 8 months, been through the … More Googly eyes and colliding planets.
My Get A Life journey is planned to give me the opportunity to build on the artwork I have been creating over the past few years. To give me time and space to soak up as much ‘new’ as I can. To go places I can gain knowledge, experience, and skills. And to have the … More Severed heads and Alpacas
So I haven’t blogged for way too long, and yesterday I had a day I’d really like to share, and definitely like to document, for me, if not for anyone else! Back in December, when I was busy getting a life in NY, I ate breakfast perusing a series (ok, a couple, breakfast isn’t … More Pitcher Perfect
As some of you may have noticed, I have been drawing a lot recently. I’m working on some larger works, beautifully satisfying, very time-consuming. It’s nice to take a break and go back to recounting my US travels, at very least because it takes me, once again, back to studying the work I … More A gay icon and using old clothes: NY Pt4
I have taken a few weeks off writing and turned my hand back to pen and ink. Can’t say how nice it feels to be creating again! For all that I hate social media (in principle), it is lovely to have an incentive to create and post every day, an aim, somewhere to share and … More Gently passing time.
Day 5 Woke up feeling like my brain was going to explode. SO much I still want to do. The list doesn’t get smaller as every time I cross something off, I find something else to add! However, I feel now I have found some clarity about what I ultimately want from this trip. … More A story of unrequited love: NY Pt3
Day 3 On the third day, I was useless. Complete body and brain failure. This is a state I have come to accept as normal. Annoying, frustrating, but normal. I scrapped my original plans, made a lower energy plan, discarded that too and accepted that Manhattan just wasn’t on the cards for today. … More Reader, I stroked his beard: NY Pt 2
