Last week I had the interesting – and very enjoyable – experience of being interviewed for a podcast. The interviewer was John Middick, who runs ‘The Sharpened Artist’ a podcast mainly for anyone interested in coloured pencil art, he also provides online classes in coloured pencil technique.
His interest was initially in the letterbox collaborations I have been doing (see previous posts) but we quickly expanded into other areas of my art practice. John is a delightful interviewer, warm and friendly and interested in all aspects of art, so the interview was a great experience for me. The banner image above was what he made up to go on his website, using images that I sent through to him. This is the link to the podcast: https://sharpenedartist.com/podcast/257
My other foray into digital communication was to make a short video. The Australian Society of Miniature art now has a YouTube channel which I set up, and several members of the society have made short videos sharing various aspects of their own miniature art, from hand made books to painting on ivorine (a modern substitute for the traditional support of ivory), to printmaking techniques. The video I made was showing a miniature assemblage I made some time ago called ‘Hidden secrets of the geisha’. Video is the ideal medium for showing something like this as it has many parts hidden in little boxes and on shelves.
