Oh-so-bored in the charity shop this afternoon. I drew these. On tiny paper, and with blue fricking biro, which I quite detest. I’ve had a hard day.
Charity Shop Manager – “Oh they’re very good, have you thought about going to art school or something?”
Me – “I did. I have a degree in Fine Art.”
I really think she knew this. I wrote it on the application form, she hired me. Although she also informed me that there are 88 million people diagnosed with heart disease in the UK. There aren’t that many people living in the UK. I need to get out of there.
Teresa Margolles won the Artes Mundi award! Hurrah! YAY! Go have a look at the New Blood Art blog to see some words I wrote about her wonderful work. So very glad she won. There couldn’t have been any one else in my mind.
I am thoroughly preoccupied with job hunting at the moment, and so the art is suffering. You’d think that with all this time on my hands I’d be making loads of stuff…. Oh Em. Come on. Do something. Still drawing (always drawing), but nothing much to show. Have some lovely little sketches.
