I've been working steadily on my gyotaku project, interspersing it with other pieces for a change and am making progress.
I've started the framing process for some pieces and am creating or recreating new pieces that fit my needs. I've also been considering my options for displaying the final results of this body of work. An exhibition is one of those, both real and virtual if I can decide just how to swing that. There is a video option, slideshow or perhaps virtual exhibition software out there somewhere I'm sure! I want to ensure that my ever expanding network of artist friends and colleagues also have the ability to attend the exhibition of this project where possible.
I am also playing around with the concept of a book to document the pieces containing images, an overview of the project, and explanation of the fish used and the technique. This could also be a good marketing tool for the future depending on final cost. The image above is a virtual page mock up of salt cod that I created using Blurb to get an idea of how it would look.
The registration information piece for my gyotaku workshop is due to be released on November 1st through my mail list. Subscribers to my mailing list will be able to purchase a place at the workshop for a special price until December 31st. Its easy to subscribe, just click on the link on the right hand side of the blog, add your email address and you're done!
Finally, keep an eye on the Seasonal Page on this blog. It will be populated with goodies as of November 1st! The 2010 Christmas Card will be revealed then.
