what to do for my daily photo, since I’ve run out of flowers. I’ve noticed that the owners of a couple of blogs – although I can’t remember which ones – have been showing images of their sketch books – so I thought I might show you some of my non-sketch books – because there isn't much sketching in them.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t get started on anything until I’ve made a book for it. So when we were asked to look at two installation artists for Contemporary Textiles, the first thing I did -[once I’d decided who I was going to choose] – was make books for each of them.
This is one of my installation artists books. I think I’ve shown the front cover before – since then the back has gained a bit of decoration, and the whole thing has got a bit more battered. And fatter. The thing on the back is a temporary tattoo from a set I bought in the £ shop ages ago thinking they’d come in useful. Somehow they seemed right for this book.
This is an early pair of pages – some of my photos from the Banksy exhibition and a rather basic mind map. I am a keen exponent of mind mapping – and most of mine are much more complicated than this one.
Some disappointing news on the degree – the official start has been postponed until after half term, apparently due to an administrative glitch. Unfortunately I still missed the introductory session last week, because I was on holiday, and that wasn’t postponed.
