SHAGGY DOG DRAWING RESEARCH

PhD: long, rambling story or joke, typically one that is amusing only because it is absurdly inconsequential or pointless

Studio Diary: 8th September. Back to work.

I have been on holiday for two weeks and finally went back to studio to pick up threads today.

Throughout July I was working on illustrations for the second edition of James Elkins’s book ‘Artists and Phds’ due out in 2014 I believe. So far I have completed half of the sixteen or so pictures required. This is a distant shot of the pictures on wall of studio. I do not want to show in greater detail until published. An interesting project especially as one of the chapter authors I worked with was my ex-Dean.

I also have received funding to attend the Drawing Research network conference in New York at end of October and now have 8 weeks to complete animated paper on ‘Phd and New Knowledge’! So I going to be more than busy especially with start of new term,ย new changes at NTU and all….

I also picked up a Blundell haring drawing board in Oxfam which much sturdier than my previous and great for drawing ๐Ÿ™‚

I finally had assessment for M.A. stages one and two ‘Research Proposal’ and ‘Development’.
Was a lengthy session which explored where the work might lead in terms of developing as both practice and research.
I also proved the age old maxim that any power-point created on a PC will not work on a MAC..it still true ๐Ÿ™
