Not long now...


Just received a copy of the Derby Museum Guide for July - December and really pleased to see one of my drawings on the cover. I've had to concentrate on doing other things over the last few weeks and it's good to bring the focus back to my real work!

Jerwood Drawing - bit of a rant.

Every year I say never again - and every year I relent....this year is the final time though unless it becomes more Midlands friendly! I decided this year to send work via Edinburgh - my sister has a Wasp studio and just has to go downstairs to drop off work. Mum and Dad visited her last month and she was in the Midlands yesterday so in theory I could have avoided any transport costs and had it there in plenty of time. No, that would be too easy - I went online back in May, paid my £18 and then realised the work submission form and labels weren't available until after 5pm today (4 days before the work will be picked up??). I rang to see if there was any way I could get them earlier - as far as I know they are identical every year - No, not possible. So, I've just got back from work all ready to download, pack and prepare for posting tomorrow. The work submission form is online but I can't find the work labels anywhere? So I just have to hope they are online tomorrow morning. Do these people not realise some of us have jobs or other commitments which mean we need to organise in advance. Why can't we have a Midlands pick up??Aghhhh!

If you're in Liverpool...

Not only is the above exhibition on but Drawing Papers # 3 is now available. Drawing Papers is a project initiated by 2 Liverpool based artists - Jon Barraclough and Mike Carney, (who are both showing at the above exhibition) so you could see the show and pick up a copy! I should have some to distribute in Derby and surrounding areas at some point - alternatively get a copy posted from http://drawing-paper.tumblr.com/ or an online version at www.issuu.com/mikecarney/docs/dp3_singles.
