Here's the sketch I did for my new etching plate...I think it sums up the way I am feeling. I think I'll make it really dark and moody - put an aquatint on and use a lot of lines too.
My only hope now is a career development loan. I just hope they aren't means tested, because if they are I'm sunk...

Ooh, and Brad got me this today in Dave's Comics...I just couldn't leave the shop without it! And I then had to be manhandled past Pen to Paper (and the Bead Shop, and the Oxfam Bookshop)!

Oh, this is such a lovely animation, so beautiful and moving. Apparently it's won an Oscar, and in his speech the creator, Kunio Kato thanked his pencil! It's so good I bothered to learn how to put a video in a post.
Not much to report really, just been spending time at the studio getting ready for the Open House I'm hopefully taking part in in May - more news nearer the time. And it's Spring! Hooray!

Anyway just off to scrub a bathroom now...what joy. Oh and I am listening to Lastfm at the moment - a recent discovery. You put in a band or genre you like and it creates a little radio station for you. This morning I have been listening to "Blondie" radio...oh my goodness it gave me gems from the past I'd forgotten all about! For instance, now it's playing "Psycho Killer" by Talking Heads - I haven't heard that track for years! And "Happy House" by Siouxsie and the Banshees! And hearing the B52s "Rock Lobster" made me feel so nostalgic I felt physically sick. Sigh...where have the years gone?! I want to wear all black again and be cool and rebellious! (Instead of wearing black to hide bulges and stains).
Have a great day everyone! (Ooh - it's playing 11.59 now!)
(Later: It's playing "Another Nail For My Heart" by Squeeze...I feel "past"sick again and I have to turn it off...)

There should be somewhere to click on the right to take you straight to my sponsorship page. I will send something to everyone who sponsors me, I really will. (If I survive that is.) So don't make me look a fool for nothing...help me out, why dontcha.
