Made a school boy’ error that caused me to be 4 days overdue in sending a customer order. Did not update my postal preferences for custom orders. Giving myself no breathing space to create a screen printed concertina journal from scratch. (Whilst holding down a full time ‘second job’). It has been gruelling…I have loved it and loathed it at the same time. Loved creating…loathed my ‘second job’ getting in the way of a very tight deadline.
Now I can breathe easy cos just sent the order to Canada. Just hope customer is not too peeved at delay.
Now off to let Etsy know package has been dispatched. Yay me-ish.
There are a million and one things I would rather be doing tomorrow morning and going to work is not one of them!!!
I’ve got a deadline looming …I really wish I didn’t need to work as an employee to fund my art practice.
I really wish I could afford an assistant right now. Going to have to find a way to squeeze a week’s worth of graft into two days. Have no idea how I’m going to pull it off but I have to.
Maybe I should call in a sickie.
Working on a set of bookmarks.
Looking at it now…I get what my mum was saying about wallpaper….(would actually make really nice wallpaper).
Really enjoy screenprinting….got one more later to go…(just hope I’m not over reaching…love it when a job makes me nervous…challenge is such a buzz)
Met an amazing artist printmaker on Thursday…exhibiting at Craft Central. John Patrick Reynolds. An amazing screenprinter.
Didn’t take a pic of him (he’s a bit …a lot camera shy). Had this awesome four colour print – the registration was on point!
Still can’t get over it…you probably can see more of his work at Comic art
Handmade, limited editions of classic comic characters. John Patrick is the only screenprinter allowed access to the archives of DC Thomson and Editions Albert Rene. (two top comic publishers)
It was so much fun chatting to John (I did much of the talking – he doesn’t say too much – a go getter not a chatterbox like me 😃)
Love his screenprints. Think they are pretty nifty.
