i picked up my copy of issue 6 uppercase magazine from the post office today. managed to not rip open the envelope until i got back to work, where i pulled it out then shamelessly flipped to page 45 where my piece i submitted for their open call took up almost a whole page. so pleased.
the call was for illustrations of your workspace. i treated my piece as an in-depth sketch, not getting too precious, trying to include all the random bits on my desk & not tidy up or slip in interesting objects that aren't usually there. at first i wasn't going to fill in the postcards on my wall the way i did. originally i was going to make them less recognisable, so you perhaps couldn't tell who's work it was, but this turned out to be harder than i imagined (especially when the postcard involved large text). anyway, i thought i might use this post to show you who resides at eye-level on my wall. it's a selection of postcards by artists either picked up at shows or sent with packages, plus two photos sent by photographers. i hope people take their being there & appearing in this piece as a compliment. from left to right:
