It’s up! It’s here! The “Desk” project is now live and you can find it here or on the menu above. I didn’t know if my regular readers would get a notification about it going live (I know you get pinged when a post goes live but it’s a ‘page’ not a ‘post’ in WordPress terminology) and so I’m just putting this blog post together to ensure that you see it in your in trays – I know a lot of you have been very interested in how this turned out.
And how did it turn out? Well, I’m thrilled with it. It’s been so nice talking to so many painters via messages, emails and comments across different platforms. We’re a great bunch, really, and so friendly too. I’ve been talking to people all over the world and it’s been fascinating to see the images of their sacred, hallowed work spaces, and to read their words too.
I received a fantastic response to this project and that means that it’s quite long. The page that you’ll visit contains everything that was submitted in time (I hope – please tell me I didn’t miss anyone!) and though I thought about editing it down, in the end I thought that this would be a disservice not only to the people who took the time to take a picture and write these words, but also to the theme itself – there’s so much in there. When you visit the page, you will see so much variety, and read so many different stories. And each one of them is worth enjoying.
So, make yourself a cup of tea/coffee/piña colada (whatever’s your poison) and sit down to enjoy a nice long draught of geeky goodness and painting paraphernalia. Take a look at the spaces where the artists you admire spend their time painting and modelling the miniatures you love. You might even find some great ideas for your own hobby spaces too.
One final piece of extra thanks to everyone who took part. It was a pleasure speaking with every one of you, and I hope you continue to enjoy your desks, and create many amazing miniatures in the future. Stay in touch too. Onwards!
