Progress at the new studio is excellent! Desks are built, walls are painted, things are beginning to happen! Looking forward to our official launch.

I seem to have been posting a lot of photos lately; there's not much illustrating going on while work on the new studio continues. I've been carrying 2 film cameras with me all year; one disposable from a series of 6 Robert Telegramme bought me for Christmas and an Olympus XA2 - I've been trying to document all the things I see. I started this daytrips series as a way to edit some of them...
I watched Beautiful Losers this week; if you haven't (or even if you have!) then make it happen in your life too. It makes you feel very good about just... 'making'. It also made me feel like writing something about 'the-new-DIY' which I will get round to soon; while the Beautiful Losers were starting to turn their personal work into commercial art, a lot of artists in the current generation are now having to deal with the opposite; how to turn their profit-making, in-demand images into an inventive and exciting self directed passion. To do this they have needed to become project managers, producers and above all instigators. Rise up!
