My Week In The Art World
Sunday Go to work at 7am til 3pm. Come home, fuck about trying to sort internet. An hour and a half later some progress is made. Think about what I want to achieve for the next 7 days. I have 2 sculptural installations I need to start work on, a zine to finish, stuff that needs to go to the printers. Think about re-doing my proposal packs and portfolios. Think about cooking dinner, think about drinking wine and writing blog entries. Go to bed, can't sleep, should be making art.
Wake up, drink tea, smoke, procrastinate. Buy new blades, get all goo-eyed over sketchbooks, drawing pens and all other art materials. See care co-ordinator, tells me he's leaving and i'll have new support soon. fuck.. Start work on artwork, almost cut off my thumb. Think about looking at pictures of cats, think about looking at pictures of Colin Farrell's face. YUM. Cook dinner, drink tea, smoke. Go to bed, can't sleep, should be making art.
Wake up. Drink tea. Smoke. Look at pictures of cats and Colin Farrell. YUM. Procrastinate, think about drawing, think about reading, think about making art. More tea. More smoking.
