Just give it a go. Day 25
This is my first try at a bit of art.
For the last couple of days, the brand new inks and pastels and brushes on my far too tidy work bench were bothering me. I don't have a clue how to use any of them. How much water to use with a block of watercolour? What to do with a chunk of pastel?
Of course, I could have watched the first instructional video from Tracy's online course but I'm a person that never reads the instructions before trying anything so that was out of the question.
I thought I just give it a go. And here you are. It's just a square of paper photographed against a few scraps of material. Simple. And now it's the new background of this web site as you may have noticed. If you keep track, you might see the background changing daily as I try out my new inks. Since agents aren't calling at the moment and corporates aren't hiring, I don't suppose it matters if my website is an ever changing depending on my latest creative urge!
What a time this is!
Life might not have changed too much for you, you might still be working at what you were before. But magicians, musicians, event organisers, theatre staff, sound technicians are not working at all. Or maybe like me, they're trying something new.
Today I had a walk and coffee with a magician mate of mine, the super creative Joel Dickinson (left). After bitching about the state of our industry and scoffing some vegan cheesecake outside in the sun at Manjushri cafe, he said,
"Why don't you make a magical trailer for the book? I can help you if you like."
It's a good job I don't have to do any gigs or travel to exotic locations right now, there isn't time to do all the writing and art-ing and book trailer making as it is.
If you've have got any more bright ideas for me to 'manifest a million' plus readers, feel free to chime in. Within reason! Although as you know, in my world, nothing is really outside the limit of consideration!
Love love love
