Great news, Lovelies!
I have realised that the ready date for my new designs should coincide nicely with the SALA Goodwood market. So that shall be their official launch!
Have been keeping up well with running, and rather overdosing on OpShopping.
Keep well this cold spell,

Hi Lovelies!

What a lot (thousands I believe) of fabulous posts about Poverty yesterday! I only got to a few but they were well-written, positive and encouraging or celebrating action.

I have a link that someone gave me with a review of the Walking Tour in SALA. It speaks kindly of my efforts.

The sun is shining, the roses are blooming. A fitting day for Ruth Tuck’s funeral. (I have mentioned her before; there isn’t too much on the web, but she has been a massive influence on myself and a heap of people).

Keep well,

Hope you all you beautiful bloggy-persons all had a lovely weekend,

Just to clarify from last time, this is the way I imagined the animation would appear:

Thanks for your responses (to my comment, and here at my blog) Vered (of MomGrind). I am liking the way the world seems smaller, friendlier as connections build.

Good luck all for a happy and sucessful week,

And I need to take on my own suggestion (ie. bloom where I am planted, or in this case where my animation is planted) and not get stressed about a silver, self-cleaning toilet block that sprung up in the time between choosing the wall for my site-specific animation and the date for the SALA walking tour with projector transported on a special bike.

This is what the wall looked like when I chose it (note the big pole in left foreground):

wall near new bus station

and this is it now:

wall with new shiny development

wall with new shiny entity

This is a picture of where the resourceful team were able to project the animated 80 seconds through between the shiny silver construction and the big pole:

Here is the link to how my work looked on the wall. Thanks Doll Yoko for the photo and for putting the photo on your art/free & open source software/politics website. I appreciate it.

Will let you know when I have figured out how to post the animation to YouTube, and you can have a look.

I just noticed I’m actually not complaining, I just thought it was all an interesting development and outcome, and a personalised side story I was able to add to the mosaic.

The walk as a whole was really great. Well organised, well presented, well-chosen matches of film to the various locations. People were great to work with, beyond the call of duty helpfulness. (Thanks for the font-save Luku!)

By the way, at the “Duck Park” down the street the happy ducks have 7 ducklings, growing up fast!


Greetings fellow inhabiters of BlogWorld,

During July and August I am happy (and encouraged) to say that some of my printmaking work has gone to good homes, some locally, some via Air Mail.

As of today, I have also updated my Tangerine Meg etsy shop listings to include some new prints that are printed, painted and available.
For this here blog, I have fresh uploads too, which need a new theme maybe (as they are neither “Happy People” nor “Cat Prints”). They are a dove, mandarins etc, with pears to follow. Hmmm…How about Nature As Design Element? Too long perhaps? …Now I’ve decided, it’s called Design from Nature; feel welcome to have a look at my simple new page.
The next updating needs to be my own card shop. Will let you know when that is done.

More details later on my SALA screening that I mentioned a few weeks ago. I will tell the whole story when I get a link to a particular photo someone took.

Wishing you peace,

Hey there!

Progress today! Remember that lovely watercolour paper I bought last week? Well yesterday I made some prints and today I have done some painting! I have one learning experience to show you (bad result) and one happy construction. OK the bad news first:

The paper is the same brand and the same weight, but smooth not textured. I did not bother painting any more as the way the paint goes on is so not what I am looking for. It’s kind of a shame, cos the printing ink went on clear and black and lovely.
And the good news…(drum roll) the 3 mandarin design I had carved, is now printed on paper, and painted! Here it is:
bright orange mandarins with sky blue background and rainbow border

The colours look pretty well as I had hoped. The plan for this image is to hand-make some cards, and maybe show on etsy and red bubble (eg. for t-shirts and wall art) as well as do a limited run of originals.
I also finished my SALA animation, it’s all of 80 seconds long! More on that in a couple of weeks.
Be yourself. There’s nobody better qualified.
