Guess who's book is the number 1 seeling art/craft book in the good old USA.
Yep you guessed it right, MICHAEL'S is.
I know, I am excited for him.
And naturally so proud!
Michael's book "Secrets of Rusty Things" has sold 10,000 copies already and the book is into it's second print run!
Whilst I am busy working on Sam's Visual Anthology I thought I would share some images that some of you may like to use. I very rarely work on images of people I do not know. I find it difficult. Possibly because I have such an archive of people I have met through working on their life stories. I get very engrossed in my work as it also involves research too, so if my blog posts wane you will understand that I am in work mode.
JUST SAY A LITTLE PRAYER...
Please say a prayer for my friend Julie's cat.
She has a cat called Maggie who is very unwell.
Julie is like the Bernie Berlin of Perth.
Julie is one of those amazing people who looks after animals in need of help, love and tenderness. I take my hat off to her for all that she does.
Please join Julie and her wealth of friends in a prayer for Maggie.
Once again I want to express my thanks to all those who commented on my last post.
I really worry that my blog has too many "heavy" posts but that's the nature of me, my work and my life. It's all emcompassing. My art, like most of you, is drawn from life experience. My life experiences are full of symbolism, religion, heritage and passing on the messages of legacy. My art is a refection of that.
I am so humbled when people find that the things I write about affect them in positive ways. It gives me hope and strength and only encourages me to further find an artful expression of those things.
So thanks again.
