Apart from another series of photographs I really also want to do a shitload of life-drawing again, but instead of pencil I want to use charcoal and chalk and really dramatic chiaroscuro lighting.

One of my big Badb Catha linoprints all packaged up and ready to post off to New York tomorrow (photo-bombing cat is staying here).
This is the third piece of artwork I’ve sold to customers in New York (3 different prints to 3 different customers). I need a gallery there! :)

I’m going to be putting up the prices of my artwork on the online shop after next weekend (a sad decision, made after looking over my end-of-tax-year accounts!), so…
If you’ve been thinking about buying some handmade artwork then do so NOW before the prices go up!http://www.lazaruscorporation.co.uk/shop

Really looking forward to two weeks in Turkey in June - except I need that holiday NOW.

7 hours on the train today, going up to Oxfordshire and back.

Back in Brighton now, exhausted

Why pay for art when it’s free?

Kim Boekbinder  on why you should pay for art

Currently distressing the edges of a large piece of cloth with a wire brush that’s so sharp it keeps pricking my fingers, while cats attempt to jump on it.

They never said anything about this in art school…

Back to work tomorrow morning, but still want to organise a photoshoot for next weekend, and start another drawing.

I need a series of 4-day weekends to get everything done.

Oh, and I have made some progress on the “costume” for the next series of photographs (although an easel doesn’t make a particularly good mannequin).

Well, I haven’t actually started any artwork over this long weekend yet, but I have

  • written the first 2000 words of a blog post about the masks I’ve been making for my artwork (which I’ll get round to finishing and posting sometime over the next 2 weeks), and 
  • made some improvements to the Lazarus Corporation website, to allow easier browsing of the artwork (plus some under-the-hood performance improvements).

…So fairly productive, overall.

I do want to do some photography next weekend, but I somehow doubt I’ll get everything organised in time.

Just posted a new blog post about this drawing of mine which I did over past few days, and the process of working through a new drawing technique: http://www.lazaruscorporation.co.uk/blogs/artists-notebook/posts/working-through-a-new-drawing-technique

OK, that’s quite enough programming for one day.

Now back to wasting time on the internet, watching TV, and drinking wine.

April 19, 2014

Spending this afternoon re-writing code for my website to add a few enhancements and improvements. And getting distracted by TV.

3m × 1.5m of grey wool (plus one curious cat) - I’m going to wash, rip, and generally distress the material over the weekend and it will form part of the costume for my next series of photographs (the ones I’ve written about here).
