Nah, my degree is in fine art. I just got into this kinda by accident. It started off as a fun side project, then to keep up with commissions I had to quit my regular job.

I do lots of different 'projects' due to my short attention span.


where's your degree from? glesga?

No, Cumbria institute of the arts (CIA Laughing ) It was the only interdiciplinary course I was interested in (If I'd gone to Glasgow I would have had to specialize and due to my aforementioned attention span I'd've gone mad doing painting for 4 years) Though I did do 2 projects at Glasgow in third year.

Plus because I was self funded doing the degree in England worked out cheaper as the degree takes 3 years instead of 4.
As an added bonus that meant I had to pick an extra class in year 1 and 2, fisrt year I did creative writing and second year I did musical composition for performance. That was awesome, the end of year assessment was a gig. Class.

true. i went to edinburgh and specialised in illustration. i narrowly avoided the painting department, that's what i wanted to do in first year but thank fuck i didn't. every single person i know who did it hated it and thought it was a complete waste of an education. phew!

but i liked illustration enough to go back and do a masters, even though it was basically printmaking and digital work i was doing. it was quite an open department thankfully.

I have a short attention span. It must be catching.

I pretty much did an entireley new thing every project so I would have been screwed if I'd done painting. I'm thinking of a masters to do some more printmaking.

I have a waiting list right now so I don't have anything available to sell. I might try to pick up a couple of pots and knobs and make a 'pedal' one with control knobs for eyes....

When I have a free afternoon I'll start work on something and if it'll work I can send it to you to install a something easy into, I could put a miniamp in the head or something..... This could get interesting. Very Happy

A booster or something would work, but that would likely only have one volume control. I could do a Boost with a Master volume so you can get some dirt out of it, if we were doing "eyes" as the controls.
