Self-promotion not being my forte, it’s taken a while to get around to writing about this, but after the fourth person stopped me on the street to remark on it, today’s the day I probably should.
To cut a long story short, the tremendous feast for the eyes and mind that is Derbyshire arts magazine Artsbeat saw fit to feature me and my work in their April issue. Amanda, its implacable editor, interviewed me over my dining room table and saw fit to edit out my cynical and largely incoherent ramblings on the nature of design, and leave in a load of good stuff that, while all true and correct, I don’t even remember saying.
It all came about thanks to my unexpected triumph in the Internet Movie Poster Awards – Amanda had got wind of it and wanted to capitalise on my imminent fame and riches. She quietly absorbed the news that the victory didn’t come with any, and proceeded with the article anyway, which was very decent of her.
Anyway, I couldn’t be more pleased with it. And also great to see the Love New Mills design pop up in the later pages (in an article expounding the boundless joys of New Mills), as well as a little mention of the folk band that tolerates my noise-making exploits, AKA The Gally Canters.
If you live in or are visiting Derbyshire, please seek out a copy. It’s available at most galleries, and information places around the county. I’ve been so tardy in writing this that you’ve probably missed your chance to get this April issue, but I dare say that it’s well worth reading even if it doesn’t feature me.
UPDATE: You can now read the text of the article online, if that’s your thing.
