Well, now it's like this : (
I am now fully in my new studio, although far from settled in. I hate this part of moving anywhere, the bit where it takes you a while to find a natural place for everything and also finding the best way of working within it. I'm already having an issue with the lack of worktop in front of my mac. I'm used to doing most of my drawing in front of the screen and now I'm having to move away to draw, bah! I'll figure it all out in the next couple of weeks, but it's leaving me feeling unsettled. Which is how I've been feeling all year so far. 2012, is just not happening for me yet. I just can't find any kind of 'flow'. I always have a fairly rough January, but this is starting to drag on now. To add to it all, I've had to move quite a bit of my stuff home from the old studio. It now sits all over my work room, so not much happening in the world of pots either. I need to get over this hump soon! Bah.
Here's a link to some lovely pictures and an article on the building our new studio is in. It's a magnificent building, just off the seafront here in Hastings. It housed the printworks for the local paper many years ago. This isn't a history blog, so i can be bothered to find dates etc!... it just was! The whole area around us is developing nicely. We even have a public library that is actually expanding rather than closing!! That's why we were kicked out of the old studio, as the building is now going to become part of the library. We are now in the building the other side of the library. This one.

I'll stick a pic up of the space in action, once i get settled in. It's a nice space with a good vibe.
