Had a quick wander around the North Laine this morning and restocked my supply of paper for lino-prints (plus a quick nosey round Dave’s Comics). Wondering where would be best to advertise for life models in Brighton. Any ideas, Tumblr?

Anonymous asked: Hi - I see you do a lot of life-drawing and I was thinking about getting some work as an artist's model - do I need to have any experience or can anyone do it? Are you looking for models (I'm in Chicago). Hope you can help!
My print-drying rack and roller arrived from the art shop today, so I’m going to doing some more print-making this weekend (lino prints again, probably). :) I actually want to do some more photography - keep getting some good ideas, but haven’t got anything together yet (models, props etc.).

Back in Brighton after a few days in Leeds at the Sisters of Mercy’s two 30th anniversary gigs (Wednesday & Thursday nights). Opening song on 2nd night - Kiss the Carpet - absolute classic.

It’s that time again: time to remind myself - oh, and you - who the hell I am. I’m Paul Watson, an artist based in Brighton, UK.

A beautiful book →
Wandered into Brighton today and treated myself to a copy of Marian Bantje’s book “I Wonder”. I haven’t started reading it yet - I’ve been too engrossed by the book as an object: gilt-edge pages, a highly decorative cover picked out in shining gold and silver inks, beautiful typography, beautiful graphic design. Wow.
Plans for weekend
Wander into Brighton city centre on Saturday morning - need a couple of new art books Work on http://www.lazaruscorporation.co.uk Maybe do a bit of photography or lino-cutting …but right now I’m off to the pub.
