Fabien Ho's Artist Diary.....

Tuesday 31st Aug:
Panic stations and have had to ring a friend to come help when I realise my art of procrastination has hit an all time perfection. Posters? Designed & printed, yet to put up... Note to self, keep a spare one for the Hub. What a great idea that Info Hub thingy in the town centre.

Wed 1st September:
Leaflets? Designed and printed, yet to distribute door-to-door. Do I post them through every door? Crikey will need hundreds, printer on overdrive as it is. Dropped some off at key locations, but came home with a vintage clock. I'm sure the idea was to do stuff for the Exhibition, not actually buy a clock. Note to self: Buying a clock does not equate to buying time.

Thurs 2nd Sept:
Drinks for visitors? Off to the supermarket for Cava £4 a bottle, bargain! Priorities priorities... the pictures may not be up on the walls yet, but at least we have booze.
Having a blue tack nightmare.. where can I get some? Is knocking on neighbour's door at 1am a little crazy?
Can feel migraine coming on, need to do as much as I can before it blacks me out.

Friday 3rd Sept:
Thank goodness for old college friends who are great with the spray paint, spray mount and scalpel. Wow they've done all that I had procrastinated for over a week. In half an hour.
Woke up from 12 hours of sleeping off a Migraine. Moved the dining room furniture and turned it into an art gallery space. Hung wires and clips. Looks cool, am liking... it actually works.

Think we're nearly there... as I type this 10.49am, my door opens in 11 minutes. But the golden question, will anyone come?  If not, I've got 6 bottles of Cava all to myself... Good times!

Why not pop in for a cup of tea? Or a glass of Cava (if there is any left, that is).
