Never has there been a time when I needed to manage my time more efficiently, than I do now. Work is showing no signs of slowing down, I have just taken on my largest, most challenging and most detailed commission to date at 38 x 56 inches... and I have also been summoned for jury service! Great timing, eh?
Add that to trying to keep up with shopping, cooking, cleaning, going to the gym and walking the dog, it looks like I'm going to be working through evenings, weekends and possibly some nights too to keep on top of everything!
So my latest joint Podcast episode with Tara Roskell from 'The Idea medic' comes at a very good time for me, as we discuss ways of using time in the most productive way possible and in some cases even making extra time you didn't even have!
Of course, there is a bit of a bonkers twist in the episode, as is often the case when the two of us get together... but I won't spoil the fun!
I wanted to capture these 'classic' Coke bottles on canvas before they disappear forever... It's funny, the other day I saw an old Fairy Liquid bottle from the 1980's and it's surprising how seeing something so simple from the past can take you right back there!
When I was a kid, I was never allowed to drink fizzy drinks at home, so I got to enjoy a Coke with a straw only when I was at a friends house or a party... And by the time I left home, the only coke I was interested in, contained a good splash of Vodka!
Anyway, I should be thankful that fizzy drinks were never a part of my daily diet, since to date I still don't have any fillings. That can't be a coincidence, right?
