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
What do you think of when you think ‘New York’? I’m guessing for many it’s the skyline. The Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, maybe the Twin Towers are still there in your snapshot? Well, I’ll be honest, I haven’t seen any of it. Three days down and there’s been no shortage of remembering what … More Art is a guaranty of sanity: NY Pt 1
