Well, 2011 is dead and buried, 2012 is here all new and smelling as fresh as newly cut grass.
I have been neglecting this Blog a great deal, and as a matter of fact illustration as a whole. I can only apologise to myself, as I need to motivate myself to create some work.
I'm still working on my main project, portraits of musicians that have influenced me and other artists. I'm aiming to get a lot more created and finished, at least aiming for a new portrait once a week. Once there's a good selection I have plans for an exhibition or two, plus possibly a book. It's all being worked on as we speak but I don't want to go into too much detail at the moment. Suffice to say, hopefully it will be a success.
I'm also working on some new music and I'm looking to record a better quality demo sometime this year. I'll be putting some stuff up on the internet once it's written to get some feedback, so look out for that at some point. I'm also working on some music reviews, I'm unsure what format they will take, either written or video, but I'd like to share music I love which some of you may not have heard before. Either that, or some awful music!
What else? Well, there's a trip to Japan to come around March time once that's booked. Also quitting smoking is up on the list, started today and will be updating on here with my progress as a sort of motivational tool.
I have a few other goals I'm working towards this year, but I'm keeping tight lipped about them as they are all very personal things I need to work on.
On a side note, I haven't really mentioned much about moving back to Norwich much. All I can say is that it has worked out better than I had expected so far, and it's been great reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. I need to work on my personal life to make it exactly where I want to be, but I think coming back here has been one of the best decisions I have made so far.
Well, that was a bit of a brain offload. To finish off, a great song.
I wish anyone reading this a happy and prosperous new year to come.
