Arty Goings On

Tuesday, 7 June 2016

Carol - 'I can't stop long. I just popped in to say hello'
Blog - *looks at Carol* 'Have you not been here in a while? I didn't notice. I've been playing Skyrim...'
Carol - 'Oh I love Skyrim'
Blog - 'Did you know that you can create zombie chickens?'
Carol - *laughs* 'You can create zombie chickens?'
Blog - 'Yeah. They don't last long but they are entertaining'
Carol - 'When we lived in Thailand our Thai friend, Moon, couldn't pronounce the word zombie' *laughs* 'She called them sobeeps...which is now what we call them.'
Blog - 'I created a sobeep chicken!' *laughs* 'Actually, if you said it the other way round, chicken sobeep, you could market it as an exciting new chicken dish'
Carol - 'Chicken in a zombie sauce...hmmm...sounds delicious' *laughs*
Blog - 'Yeah. It's making my stomach rumble' *is laughing too*
Carol - 'Anyway, I thought you might like to see what I've been working on. This is one of the commissioned pieces I've not long finished. It's a Tree Of Life which celebrates 50 years of marriage...'


Blog - 'I knew you did these but this is the first one I've seen. I love the fact that it's completely personal!'
Carol - 'Yeah. One of my clients said it was like having a portrait of her life on the wall. I rather liked that description!'
Blog - 'So what else have you been working on? You've called this post Arty Goings On so I'm guessing you have more than one thing to show me?'
Carol - 'Yup, two different logos! This one is for a client who is launching a new business creating kids clothing and toys called Happy Face....
and this one is for a client who's starting up their own counselling practice'


Blog - 'I really like them both. They are quite different aren't they'
Carol - 'It's good to be versatile I think. Oh, and I have one other bit of exciting news....'
Blog - 'Well go on then...don't keep me in suspenders...'
Carol - *laughs* 'One of my illustrations is being used in a film'
Blog - 'What? An actual film? With real actors and everything?'
Carol - 'Yup! It's an actual film...with real actors and everything! I don't know much about it...it's an Indie film set in New York and it's got something to do with cyborgs! The main character is going to be pretending to actually draw one of my illustrations'
Blog - 'That is very very cool. Which one?'
Carol - 'This one'


Blog - 'You'll have to let me know what happens with that!'
Carol - 'I will.' *pauses* 'Right, I am off to work on the next page of the graphic novel. I'll leave you to your sobeep chickens'

*Blog is no longer listening as he makes his Skyrim character go running off down a hillside chasing a chicken*

Carol - *rolls eyes*
