Something About Nothing

What am I up too.

I’m scouting for financial help. Applied for a grant last friday but don’t think I was prepared enough to get it (my dreams are way too high sometimes). Its the most nerve wrecking thing for me writing a grant cos I sit down, dream about all the possibilities I’ll have if I receive it and then I hand it in and chew my nails off for 2 months. (I’ve only attacked one finger so far.)

Either way my plan over at the moment is shoot on my weekends to cover enough pictures for the Australian Art of Travel series, plus save money to hire a computer so I can finish the photoshop work of Switzerland Art of Travel.

I also want to meet more gallery owners. Get further advice on my direction.

Oh and Here’s a list of useful Arts Groups/Sites I’ve been exploring :) (just a bit of Info Sharing)

I got given a booklet in Austria by an Wall Instrument Sculpture Artist from America who I can’t remember the name of (I have a funky picture of us with top notch glasses on though).

This booklet was made out of a Post card of Wien. She described it to be a note book, cook book or whatever book.
I’ve never been much of a diary writer (recapping on my day seemed so backwards) but I started to scribble random thoughts and notes into this Booklet. And made another one myself once the first was full. Its turned out to be a fantastic micro diary, and bit of a twitter micro blog in a book, and the best thing about having it made out of a post card is when you’re travelling and you update it, it shows a story of where you’ve been. Much better then writing in a post card and sending it off to never be seen again.

Below is some instructions on how to make one.

1: Buy a Post Card

2: Find some scrape blank paper. (You know the paper the printer pops out with one useless line on it.)

3: Cut the paper up into rectangles to fit nicely into the Post Card. 5-6 pieces of paper are enough. Fold paper in half with post card surrounding it.

4: Find a needle and thread.

5: Sew the paper through the middle  to the postcard to create a booklet.

6: Bobs your uncle. Your finished. Start Writing in it or Drawing or using as emergency tee pee paper

Hey There,
Just updating some more Photo Awards & Competitions I’m running into.
I’ve also found the following two sites helpful for writing Artist Bios and Statements. I’m just so awkward when it comes to writing about myself and this information really helped to work through it :)

After a 34hr flight complimented with a 10hr delay. I made it home in time to set up my exhibition (with the help of my fantastic parents) and attended the launch feeling excited and dazed with jet lag (Can’t believe I lasted til 2pm).
Thanks to everyone that attended and all the lovely comments.

The Exhibition is staying up at Little Creatures till 17th August 09, so you still have time to check it out if you haven’t already.
All prints are for sale and if you are interested in collecting any please contact me at:
