Life with updates

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 6, 2014, 1:18 PM
Hope you're all doing well, thought I'd drop a smallish update here just to cover some bits and pieces and let you know what's going on.


First off I've been very quiet recently and that's because I have a really horrible exam this tuesday, which is to do with electrical regulations, rather than just being something you can memorise, it's actually based around knowing the electrical regulations and more importantly providing references to where you find information in the regs (so it's all very well knowing Mrs Puddle duck can't have an electrical outlet installed in her bath so she can play virtual bingo on her Ipad, but you have to be able to quote the specific regulation in order to get any marks).

To add in that added fun factor the exam gives you 30 minutes to answer 15 questions, that's just 2 minutes to locate the specific regulation.

Naturally I'm a sea of calm....


Or not.


Anywho, as a result I'm quite quiet at the moment and will be for just a little longer, but if you still have suggestions or questions, just fire them my way.

Cheers!

How do you feel about actual nudity (or actual body parts) in anatomy tutorials? (No I'm not going to post nudes...)

A tinkerer of all things great and small, in a nut shell I'm eccentric, caffeine addicted, introverted, perverted, insane and utterly loveable.

I'm also incredibly modest. <:

Kind of like a ferret on speed.

Sculpture stuff.

Hi there!

I'm your not so local, questionably sane CV for sculpture.

My job here is primarily to annoy people with gifs of ferrets, cats and anything amusing I can find on google when I should be doing things other than procrastinate.

Aside from that my role is to feature DDs, shed some light on sculpture in the trad gallery and hopefully give the gallery much more attention, interest and attract and encourage more people into giving sculpture a try.

I take DD suggestions too, just drop me a note with a thumbnail image of what you want to suggest and I will get back to you. A few things worth bearing in mind though are:

- I'm here to help Traditional art sculpture, not artisan crafts sculpture, so it's always worth checking you're sending your suggestions to the right person (but I am happy to help if you're unsure or stuck).

- I can't give features to pieces where the artist has had a DD in the last 6 months, as above, if you're unsure, just ask me and I will be able to check.

- DDs are not awards, they are features, my role is to try and give some exposure to a variety of different artists and in particular artists with very little exposure in their gallery.

- While I'm sure I'll be adding/editing this section at some point (probably within the next few days or week) I'm open to suggestions and ideas, as well as journal features, tutorial creation and interviews, but if you have any ideas give me a shout and I will do what I can to help you. :)

It didn't take long for someone to do costume that. :paranoid:

I'd look much better though.
