Sacred Life Saturday: Just buzzing!!

i've seen adverts for this dvd magazine in regular-paper mixed media mags, and decided to give it a go... i ordered it from karen's landey's etsy shop, but you can visit the indie art website as well! i just think it's a wonderful concept - to see interviews with artists rather than reading them!

i chose this issue for the interview with nick bantock - i LOVE this man's work!! i read the griffin and sabine saga (all 6 volumes) a couple of years ago, and was instantly transported to a magical world - not of children's fairytales - but of grown-up mystery and love... and it's just too wonderfully voyeuristic to read their 'actual' letters and cards, all tucked in envelopes inside the books...

watching this interview and 'meeting' the funny, articulate, gifted artist himself, i had to pull his artful dodger off my bookshelf and reread it :o)

there is also an interview with judy wise - another favourite of mine!! the sheer range of her artistic skill with so many media is mind-blowing! she is a living testimony to the human endeavour to learn as much as possible in this lifetime!!

i'm always so inspired to see/hear/read artists discussing their work - it just gets the juices flowing... if only i had a private studio with all my materials laid out ready *sigh*

the muse tends to slip away as i struggle to get stuff laid out on the dining table... ho, hum!!

Hi there,
I'll be off to get copy straight away - he sounds as if he'll be a great contrast to the last Harry Potter that I completed yesterday.
