To the point? I had to start my art degree from the beginning. Hence, the gap between this post and the last. In the process I created a new space for my coursework – you can follow my new ‘study blog’ by clicking HERE or the using tab at the top of the page. If there’s any aspect of the restart I like, it’s probably the fact I’ve actually started a fresh learning log. I occasionally used to enjoy rambling on this side of the web and had to give brief intermission when this blog turned into a kind of coursework project. I can now return to my own art and natters once again.
I’m up late this evening. My sleep is a bit buggered after I gave work a miss today following the result of night-time nausea from 3:56am which proceeded to blanket me for most of the day. I ended up sleeping on the couch some time in the early afternoon and awaking to an episode of Columbo. At least I feel a bit better now. I think I’m going to take a nap for a further four hours and then attempt to carry on with some productive stuff. My sleep pattern should be appropriately aligned by then and I’ll be able to post some art-related updates.
At the beginning of June I applied for a place at a Manchester art exhibition that will be happening this coming September, and it’s ace to say that somebody has said yes to my very first art proposal. I’ll only be having a single piece of art on display, but it’s all very exciting to me and I’m feeling very positive about the whole thing. Life seems to be on the up. My new job begins on 20th June, so that gives me approximately a week of free time between the termination of my current job and the next. It will be lovely to plan what I need to get done in terms of the exhibition and I’ll also be able to make some social plans around my new schedule. The new job will be regular working hours, Monday to Friday, which means after almost ten years I’ll finally be able to have some kind of structure in my life and I like that idea very much. Not only will this mean I’ll be able get some much needed sleep, but it also means I’ll be able to put aside set working hours for my art stuff, which is something I’ve never been able to do since getting a full-time job. Recently I’ve been working on the drawings below. They are loosley based on the proposal and will eventually play a significant part of my future applications. I’m still focusing on the theme of ‘Don’t Remain Static‘, which I shall shed more light on during the progress of this blog. Meanwhile, I’m going to continue my drawings and hope to post more updates of my work very soon.
