Just finished, still wet.
Now off to Melbourne. Hope the cold doesn’t kill me.
Just got home, had a quick shower, so tired. Had to post otherwise I won’t till the end of the show run.
There was a lot of work preparing for the show. I actually can’t remember everything we did but I remember it being tiring. Even breathing was tiring, the air here in Townsville is thicker.
We set up, it looked quite good. Wind was blowing, had to secure things with paper clips and masking tape.
Rebecca being a pro as usual. Helping me out very patiently, I have been feeling absolutely hopeless ever since I arrived.
Trust in elephants. Especially if they are green and have a zipper for your money.
Our set up complete. It took us a whole day to to figure out where everything would be placed.
It ended up being a slow night. Rebecca sold a few cards but I didn’t sell anything but there are three days to go and we are expecting large crowds.
To end I had to show this clown. How very happy this clown is looking.
I had another idea for the Foot Locker comp. Simply a tree. Something that was more spontaneous and free flowing.
I printed a template of the shoe and placed it behind the page so I would have an idea of how the image sat in front.
First layer of green
Then I decided to add a little purple and gold here and there.
I wonder if there is a technique where I can capture gold in a scan…?
Last night I showed my friends all the drawings I did in the past two weeks. I had about 12 drawings and wanted the group to choose the top 5. I didn’t think I would need some type of voting system but I kinda did, hehe. I wasn’t expecting so many people to be involved. Good thing is that overall, everybody liked my stuff. I also got some very good criticism, which I am very open too.
Here are a few the group decided on.
So I was meant to have a little solo exhibition in July, my very first one ever. It is due to my curator not having her contract renewed and so the engagements past 30 June will not be honoured. I missed it by one month.
Not to worry. I will be joining my friend in Townsville. She will have some space at an Easter show type thing so I will fly up to have a half holiday, half business engagement with her.
This has now made me busier. It’s doable though. I will get through it and it will be so much fun.
