Things have been pretty busy with the copywriting day job - or that's the excuse, anyway - and the SEO copywriting agency that I work for is set to move into a pretty exciting new office, although I'm not sure whether I should say much more about that yet to avoid jinxing anything.
Other news... I do still keep meaning to get to all of the North East England Fine Art degree shows one year, although I only got round to one this year (Newcastle) - the rest just whooshed by, not helped by the weekends being the only time when I can even consider getting to one of these things.
I still need to book the open-access print room at my studios to continue some monotyping experimentations that I was doing a few months back, and I wouldn't mind reeling off some new sugarlift etchings either, now that some new inspirations have come to mind.
On the art writing front, I've applied for a few opportunities (one paid, one not) and there were promising signs with both, but I've frankly not heard back from either for a while. It's time to wing another few 'nudge' emails their way.
Oh, and next month, I will also be in London for a week to embark on an art criticism course that I hope will point me in some interesting directions in terms of writing about art regularly again and getting published. I'm only in London twice a year, so if I can get as much value out of the trip by also cramming in some exciting evening stuff, all the better.
Anyway! I'm not sure what to say other than that. There might be a change in my personal circumstances soon that will make it a little easier for me to make more actual art, but I'll keep shtum on all that for now. Hopefully, that'll give me more source material for my writing/blogging here.
Bye for now...
