The Friday Round-up Returns

We have a new button down this way. No, not the blog, but yeah - I hear you - must blog more, no it’s: Art.
I’m finally clearing the decks to do a bit more art and so I’m hoping to make some of it available. Initially, that’ll mean sticking a few picks on Instagram and here on the site.
Once upon a time, I used to post all my art on Farcebook, sorry, Facebook. But, I’m not all that interested in social media these days and don’t know how long I’ll last there before picking up my ball and saying, in the words of the great Eric Cartman, “Screw you guys, I’m going home.”
So, Instagram it is then for the foreseeable. After that, I might look at an online store like Etsy or Artspace. If you’ve any experience of these places, please let me know how you got on.
My good friend Barry Graham keeps suggesting I have an exhibition, I’ve been avoiding this move thinking that I’d never have enough to put on the walls but it’s mounting up.
Most of my new painting work is nothing like anything I’ve done in the past; in fact, in many ways, it’s the exact opposite. I think I’ve thrown out all I was ever taught about painting, all of it seems useless at this stage.
It’ll be interesting to see how the new art work influences my next book; but there’s Gus Dury 5 - WRECKED - before then. More about that soon.
Oh, and Newsletter folks, I’ll get on that soon! If you’re one of the new sign-ups and didn’t get a freebie book in the last send-out, just drop me a line and I’ll email one to you.
