stop and shop...

...this is a photo of the first ever stall i have ever done. i think i made too many robotingtons and not enough teeth. the stall was part of a craft fair that the lovely people at Manchester craft mafia have and had organised. the morning was very quiet and it all picked up towards the end of the afternoon. quite a few people came to see me and visit me which was grand! Andy brought me a brew. bless. the next time i will be having a stall will be in December in the Urbis in Manchester. i am hoping it will be busier with it being closer to Christmas and will help fund my final exhibition stuff.


tonight's entry is a repeat...
...just like the good old shows on the telly, this picture is nothing new though it is slightly new in a way as it is a photo etch print of the stitched robotington piece that i did a while back and have previously posted up. this is the second time i have done a photo etch. it kind of worked but i didn't really think about the background and it looks empty. it was an experiment to see how the textures of the stitching would come out. i have wrote the robotington story and limited it to one hundred words. all i have to do now is put the two together! i have to face the fear and bake the image and words together in a pie and hopefully something will click and look okay. fingers and toes crossed like.
