I'm a firm believer in achieving that which I'm told 'is not possible'. My latest achievement (and even I was having doubts about this one) was the finding of a cheap, spacious, artists studio in East London. Not only in East London, but a three minute walk from my flat in Bethnal Green. Sweet!
Nowadays I usually manage to hang onto a studio space for about 12 months before receiving the notice to quite. With the building itself will usually have quite existing two to three months later. But this time I'm hoping that I've managed to break that cycle. My new work space is built under a railway arch, with actual trains running overhead. So little chance of the developers getting their grubby mitts on this space (although if they can, I'm sure that they will).
As you can see from this photo, on the desk front, I'm with Albert Einstein - “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?
