Who'd Be An Editor?


Not me, for sure. Dijanne and I have decided to create a printed edition of the Lovely Lutradur book. We're self publishing again, of course, and so have to get the text ready for the printer. This involves a small matter of resizing the entire text, and the images, too, so that they print as well as possible. As you can imagine, this is slowwww work, but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end. Remind me I said that when I'm working my way through this for the rest of the week, and the weekend...not to mention redesigning the cover.

I checked the rusting Evolon this morning, and it's working beautifully, much faster than I anticipated. I think I'll leave it another day, or so, and then rinse it, and see what I've got. Not sure what I'll use it for, but I dare say I'll think of something...

And in the midst of all this, I'm still working on the creativity book, which I had intended to call 'Extending The Zone'...but when I got to the nearly finished point, I realised I wasn't really talking about the Zone much at all, but rather how to organise your work and yourself so that you can spend as much time as possible making art, instead of thinking about it. So I'm wondering about a new title... doubtless I'll think of something. Maybe tomorrow, I'll get out in the shed to work with some waxed and dyed evolon... hmm... though there is T'ai Chi class on Fridays, and a doctor's appointment, to boot. Maybe it needs saving until Saturday...

ps if you'd like to join the mailing list for the printed edition of Lovely Lutradur, please drop me an email and I'll add your name. It should be out in a couple of months' time, but I'll let you know before then, of course! Emails to lutradur@tiscali.co.uk please. Or if you can't wait, and want to have the CD version, check it out here

Always so busy, busy! But what interesting projects you've always got going. One day I'm going to have to try your fabrics . . . evolon and lutrador.

sounds wonderful, best wishes on all your new adventures & I hope you come up with a title.

Not me, either, Marion. The best of luck with your new venture. Love the cover of it BTW. if I had room for another skill set, I so would get involved with Lutrador.

When I get to the UK in a few years, can I come play in your studio?

How about calling the new publication 'Mirror, Mirror' because " spending as much time as possible making art, instead of thinking about it" is just what I see when i look in the mirror. Way too much thinking, compared with doing!!!!

Can't wait to get my hands on the printed version of Lovely Lutrador and am just going to email you to put my name on your list. I expect I'll want the Evolon book too!!
