check , check, 1, 2, 3... is this thing working?

I don't have much time for my regular activities, but I keep opening my mouth to add more to my plate. A few weeks ago I was asked to do something for an AIDS hospice fundraiser by a friend of mine. Well soon as I thought about it a bit, I cooked up a new video installation. My working style with my artwork is fussing over every detail to make it work well at the venue, so this time was no different. GIOs is not an exhibition space as I am used to working in but a bar/lounge. The night was themed as a 'Leather Fetish Night' which was fun to work with for a change. It was a lot of fun. Looks like I am doing something for the next one!

Also in the ' too much to do but I'll do it' range of things I agreed to play a holiday show with The Fever Breaks, a psychobilly band I played with a few years ago. It's going to be at the Royal Albert, which I have a long history with and I'm really looking forward to getting on stage there again with my new gutbucket bass. We've been rehearsing a lot and everything sounds better than ever!

ok..I'm crazy

I had to test fly a new kite before I dropped it off for a members exhibition and sale at Urban Shaman Gallery. It's winter here. Yesterday afternoon it was -25 C, today -13 C or so with a windchill.... It wasn't so bad being out in the weather. The wind was pretty inconsistent so it took awhile before I was convinced the kite would be ok to sell. I'd feel horrible if someone bought it and it didn't fly properly.
