After a very busy summer, I feel like it has been ages upon ages and ages since I've been working in my beamed garret and getting any body of work out there. But even though I have not been physically making the work as much as I would like (I have the rest of my life), I'm always thinking about it, absorbing ideas, taking photos. Down time is just as important as the activity of making work.
But I'm back in the studio, music of choice is Coco Rosie, Fever Ray, Joanna Newsom and any imaginative female vocalisation in touch with their elven fairychild side. Oh, and some lively Balkan Beats and Klezma music!
This week, I have been working for my Dutch client and adding some beautiful critters to their poster (see above) I produced earlier in the year. The original poster has quietly becoming quite famous in it's own right. It is being used as a backdrop for a film, is on tour around Europe and, when the updated poster gets printed, will be posted all round Amsterdam. So, if you happen to be in Amsterdam and you walk past it, please send a photo in!
Lastly, in Todmorden on Friday, Three Valley Vegans are presenting a fantastic and fun evening of said Balkan beats, (with a bit of klezma thrown in) as well as Irish and a mixture of folk, including the great Lazlo Baby, Phil Reed and Trixxie Corish. They will be playing at the Fielden Centre from 7 pm. My teeshirts will be for sale at the main door!
