More exciting than being in a newspaper column, is turning the front page of a hip magazine, and seeing your photo with a page number reference in the contents page!!!!
I'm in The Sunday Times this Sunday, April 8th. I was contacted me earlier this week about it, and I spotted it just then, and in the wonderful new glossy STM liftout! Not too shabby at all! In fact, it's pretty fantastic! The reporter, Jan Hallam, did a wonderful job of questioning and selecting what I wrote to illustrate me as an artist, as opposed to just flogging FTI. She quoted me directly of Luke Milton and Artrage, which was so great of her.
Apart from the 24 hour Highlights Comic book still being referred to as a catalogue, and me not mentioning "Porcelain" in my 'next project' (I'm kicking myself for it now, omg how could I forget? I guess I was thinking of future projects, as opposed to present projects. damn.), the article/column totally rocks.
The page layout looks great, and it scans in a treat, and they used a recent photo of me and Alice! It looks so neat! and I think I'm more happy that Alice got into the paper too, the funny little rabbit. I showed it to her and she came up and sniffed it for a while. Probably because she thought I had a grape leaf for her, but I like to imagine she was approving her photo.
ok, and because I failed to mention it in the Sunday Times, PORCELAIN! PORCELAIN! PORCELAIN! THE NEW FILM I AM WORKING ON WITH TIMOTHY MERKS. 25 minutes SOON TO BE COMPLETED AND SCREENED IN PERTH!
man, I hope to do better third time round, IF I ever get another chance at getting into the state newspaper.
