Another well overdue blog entry. Even more changes and expansion. Another new arts centre which I hope to have completed in the next few weeks, film work, commercial and private works and commissions.
Currently working a totally new venture - all will be revealed. Meanwhile, you can now find me on a new website which is still to be refined and more content added haydensartworks.com, .etsy.com and just opened on society6.com.
Have a peak at a few recent pieces:
Private commission but prints available by arrangement with the owner.
Loki's Sceptre - recent private commission, full size 42cm.
A new range of gift cards. Here is the second design digitally rendered.
Hi. I'm currently re-organising where I store my work digitally and where it is displayed. Finding dead links or images not found. Also, finding some images are everywhere. Unfortunately I'm also finding some have been copied or used commercially without permission.
To start: anything on Photobucket needs moving: some images have gone from Pintrest to re-posting all over Tumblr for example. So I am thinking to make a Facebook page and website as archival storage for viewing with links to Pintrest, blah blah etc. Anyone have views on this?
Next: shopping cart or just where to order prints? I have prints of some pieces if anyone is interested plus anything else will be available to order for now.
Through the summer into autumn I attended various events and shows in various capacities -from volunteer for ArtsGateway Milton Keynes to one of two main guest artists at the Glasshouse at Waddesdon Manor. The latter was both last minute and very successful.
From July onwards everything became busier: relaunch of a tired art gallery as an Arts Centre; the studios and facilities build at Arts Central; requests for cosplay costumes and props, especially steampunk. It has meant a number of my own projects have been on hold. More about all that later. Meanwhile another couple of sketches.
