Video Library Reorganization!

Hello you!

A quick note to let you know that AT LAST Patreon decided to implement organization tools and now The Studio Chronicles video library is cleaner and easier to navigate.

Patreon introduced collections and I’ve been slowly arranging the 100+ posts into logical groups so when you join, you can find the medium or the topic you want to view.

Hopefully next year, when I’m finished with all these health issues I will start filming again.

Being able to put each post into a distinct category is also helpful to me because I can now see how much i’ve worked, learned and discovered through the years. It inspired me all over again to revisit the subject matters that were most rewarding, the techniques I enjoyed the most and the things I forgot about, like monoprints!

What makes my videos different is that I don’t take you by the hand and teach you how to draw or paint like me, but instead I show you different ways of using the mediums and techniques so you can apply them to your own work.

I don’t find a lot of benefit following a project (although I know some people learn best like that, there is no right or wrong).

So if you’re curious you can come over and take a tour. There is no need to sign-up the 1st of the month anymore. Patreon now works as a normal subscription service and it charges you on the day you subscribe.

I have one tier only and access to everything.

Prefer reading?

On the other hand, if you prefer reading more in-depth about the evolution of an artistic practice, and seeing recent work, in bigger formats than IG, you’re welcome to subscribe to Inter alia on Substack. Or you can read it in the browser.

Hope you're well.

Thank you for reading!


p.s. The Written Image, a class on Asemic writing is now available. I haven't made too much noise about it but if you have a pot of ink and a few writing implements, you can make a beautiful piece of frameable art in a couple of hours.

Hello Reader, It's been a while both here and maybe on other online spaces. I had a few rough patches along my chemo treatments. Some very ghastly episodes that involved a hospital stay and so many side effects that I questioned if chemo was even worth it. In the meantime I lost all desire to draw and felt like someone forgot me in an infinite tumble dry cycle. I could not find the right way up but somehow this week feels better and I'm using the smallest windows of feeling myself to do...

Hello Reader, This month I'm pondering the question: Where is home? Home is not where you were born; home is where all your attempts to escape cease. - Naguib Mahfouz You will probably see me share this quote over and over. It had a profound impact when I read it. It was a fleeting post on IG but it was absolutely meant for me in that second.I used to move every four years; there was something about that time frame that made me skedaddle from wherever I was: from a bad job, a sad love story,...

Hello Reader, This is a page from my journal, edited and formatted for The Studio Chronicles. I've been searching nonstop for something. I thought I had it, but it didn't last. Distraction is an everyday challenge, being curious and interested in dozens of things simultaneously isn't helpful either. Last week I threw out a huge pile of drawings. I was sick of looking at them. At one point I’d been proud, but lately they felt disjointed and alien to me, like I hadn’t made them. There were no...
