6th January 2015

I think everyone has a tendency to start the New Year reflecting on the previous one. I’m no different, although this time of year never feels new to me.  I prefer celebrating the Chinese New Year as it feels one step closer to spring and the return of the light.   For now, my very brief wrap-up of 2014 is as follows: winter was relatively busy, spring was slow so I spent most of the time germinating new ideas, summer was busy with commercial work and autumn was the most productive period for my own creative work. I completed two new paintings and finished a couple of drafts of a feature length screenplay.

After a wonderful Christmas break, I’m nearly ready to put up my new 2015 show-reel and begin another re-write of my script.  Writers often say that writing is re-writing and I couldn’t agree more.  Obviously, I’ve got to bring home some bacon too, so I’ve got a couple of commercial projects in the pipeline.  I think if you can use your creativity to pay the bills, even if it’s in service to an external client, it’s a win win for an artist.  I hope all of my readers (I think there’s at least one…) had a great 2014 and many thanks for all of your kind words about my work. Watch this space for links to my work and ruminations on life, the universe and everything.
