I know, two blog posts in three days after a period of relative silence, well bear with me because this one's actually good news. Following November's event (which you may remember got me into the papers http://bit.ly/9y4Vr6) Working Links (http://www.workinglinks.co.uk/default.aspx) are holding a showcase for some of the business start-ups that they've been involved with and I've been invited to take part. It will be held in the Royal William Yard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_William_Victualling_Yard) in the Mills Bakery building next Thursday 14th April from 10.30 - 15.00. I'm planning on taking along a few of the completed 'Demi-Paradise' pictures and also 'Ask a Policeman' (because, after all I've already bought the T shirt). I am told that the 'great and the good' will be in attendance so I'm hoping that even if they've forgotten their chequebooks on the day maybe they'll mention me to their even greater even better friends and I may possibly get some work out of it (come on, one of you must know Nick Serota?). There should be good coverage in the local media so keep an eye out for me in the papers and on the telly.
Accompanying the show will be a video featuring all the participants and so tomorrow I embark for deepest Devonport to be interviewed on camera. At some point the finished result should appear on the interweb (even if I have to upload it myself) and I'll be sure to post a link when it does.
And finally, I've recently joined Rise Art (http://www.riseart.com/), a web site dedicated to promoting up and coming artists. Uniquely you thepicturepalace-loving public can also be involved by voting for particular artists and their work to be featured on the home page and have professionally published editions made of their work. My page is here http://www.riseart.com/user/dave-evans and you can vote by clicking on the tick icon next to each picture.
P.S. While I'm plugging stuff, see that ad for The picture palace facebook page on the right, if you haven't already done so, do me a favour, click on it and 'like' me on facebook, you know it makes sense!
Work in progress and other stuff that happens.
