I'm getting my blogging freak back on... And I have a few stories to tell you - life hasn't been standing still while I've been awol.
The last 6 weeks have been quite a whirlwind... a trip to Melbs, a girls weekend on the Goldie, Sydney for Muse (which in itself deserves an entry - hell, I think there is one if my drafts folder somewhere), some partaying and of course the craziness that is Christmas/New Year/Summer. I'll save those for another day....
You might remember, some time ago, I blogged about the shithole that was my working studio. Drab, depressing and damp - not at all condusive to creativity.
Well, that's all changed.
Still a few things to do - like hang my paintings and put up some shelving, but it's certainly a billion times better than 6 months ago! If you need to see the shithole to believe the shithole, click here now.
And now I unveil the new and improved workspace...
The recording booth that Micko worked tirelessly on... A dream to record in! Loving the chalkboard lightbulb - a perfect match for my logo. Soundproofing plasterboard (dry wall), filled with soundproofing insulation, another layer of plasterboard and some acoustic foam. The window is 2 planes of double glazed glass. And it features a solid decorative door to boot (heavy mofo - and a total prick to hang).
Inside the money maker... gets a little hot and sticky in there, otherwise it's a total gem!
New studio monitors - still need to get the right lead so they'll work - slacker!
The back wall is teal... I can't show you that side just yet - that's where all the crap is neatly stored awaiting shelving and storage... hey, I'm not perfect, but I'm halfway there!
Speaking of a beautiful, functioning workspace... I really should get in there and start working!
Born in the late 70s during the depths of a harsh Melbourne winter, in her mid 20s, Karls migrated to a much warmer climate - then back to the cooler climate and once again to a warmer climate. With all this to-ing and fro-ing, she's discovered that home is where the heart is... in her case, anywhere that serves ice cold beer.
