I have so many ideas buzzing around in my head that I hardly get one thing finished before the next idea comes bursting forth. The more I look the more I see. I have a pattern of thought emerging relating to ideas in my work at the moment which is a wonderful place to be at in my head. And I can start to envisage a line of influences and inspiration that are leading me in a direction. The posts and links are a trail of breadcumbs for you to peruse and join me on a journey. I have no idea where I am heading, how long it will take and if I will ever get there. I have everything I need except that most precious commodity, TIME. Tonight I had to forgo Ziggy Stardust live on the box so that I could get these thoughts down. BBC4 has been doing some great music related documentaries and films over the last few days. Everyday I am exposed to the most wonderful creative possibilities and inspirations through the internet, blogs and flickr, magazines, newspapers, radio shows, films, books, art which have to be then digested and edited down to into some kind of new language of ideas for myself which I can then pick up and start to make something with. Being creative is a wildly selfish place to be. But it is a truly happy place for all its enquiry.
This blog has been an incredible place of research and thought for me. My actual art work has ground to a halt over the last few months but the ideas are really coming together now for something different. It might even be time to start drawing again.
OK - it is approaching the 1 year anniversary of FELTBUG - the blog! This has become a very important mental sketchbook for me and I do feel very lucky to have met some wonderful people, both in the real and virtual world. Thankyou for all your visits and see you again soon!
