I am so busy it's kind of scary in a good way. I have several private commissions, six bookcovers, and two book projects and a gallery show all working me well into this year. It's a good place to be in despite it is a matter of just getting the "ducks in a row" as it were. To artists, my advice is, diversify and do lots of different things. I learned this also from my friend John Davis, and his various scripts, ideas and so on-have lots of irons in the fire. The people who have suffered badly in this Recession are, the people who relied on one and only one specialty thing. I worked my last "9 to 5 job" in 1983 and have been so busy since, I haven't looked back.
Hence it's why no time to do some small works of late. As I get beyond the shock of Mum's passing, I'm emerging into a better outlook and a positive view. I know she's up there looking in on me, I have no question of this.
SO I have to climb the mountain but I think the view from there, will be spectacular.
