Some Sketchbook Scans

Still thinking about how great this weekend was, full-on-studio-time. So good to commit days and elongated hours to it, not just snatching some time here and there, or never going at all. I completed six frames, started and finished – ready to hang. That’s never happened! On top of that I created a couple of collages, and wrote lots of notes in my sketchbook. Completely productive and fulfilling!

Here’s some of the scanned sketchbook pages:

 

Don’t know where this came from in my head, but I like it. Poo Bin / Camping. Using unwanted photographs and a nice thin pen. These two go hand in hand. You know when you’re in multitasking flow, and you have things going on in different areas of the place you’re working in, and things like this just appear out of you? No? I didn’t either – that’s why this weekend was so great!

Barfoot and Duggan, Exhibitions, Lists

Thank You



Thank you to everyone who came to the ‘There’s More To Life Than Lists’ exhibition. I especially want to say thank you to those who supported me by attending the private view and came from far and wide to see the show.

Barfoot and Duggan had amazing exposure for the exhibition, thank you to the Western Daily Press, the Bristol Evening Post, BBC Radio Bristol, Tom Bigwood of Bristol Community Radio, Venue and A-N Magazines.

603 people came through the doors, breaking Centrespace records. One man stayed for 4.5 hours, reading all the lists. People have been inspired to collect lists for us, one man is angry with the queen for not giving us her list (“she’s no queen!”) we sold 60 catalogs, had a great time setting the work up, and great fun taking it down. We both made hundreds of cups of tea for visitors and had countless interesting conversations.

It is fair to say that we were knackered afterward! Barfoot and Duggan have paused their Lightbox work for 2 weeks, I have been spending all possible time in the studio, ready to return to our hard work soon, refreshed and powerful. We are also thinking about our next art project/how to continue the list project.

If you have any lists you would like to donate, please email me!

I have photographs too! Some mine, some Nigel Barfoot’s (photographer extraordinaire) and some I am waiting on from a delightful freelance photographer who kindly took some snaps for us. I will be posting the rest of the pictures tomorrow, hang on

Flyers and Business Cards


The time has come for me to print flyers and business card. But it’s so expensive! I decided to go with the option of photo printing, using matte instead of gloss photo paper. Boots Photo have a deal where if you join, you get 40 free prints. most big photo developers like Tesco and Asda have this deal too, but Boots seems to be the only one who can provide matte paper.

So I’ve bought over 900 photographs, which was about £50, these will be flyers for ‘There’s More To Life Than Lists’, flyers for my Text Project, Barfoot & Duggan business cards (4 on one photo, which i have to cut up) and Text Project business cards. AND photos from the last year and a half to update my photo album. I’m very pleased with the finish too, thanks Boots. Thoots.

Oh, I much prefer Moo Cards, they are gorgeous, but quite expensive, so next time, little moo cards.
