QUITE a lot of promo to be done today – mostly for Thursday’s full concert livestream.
I’ve been posting the video promos in phases and the last part is to share the vertical format videos to Facebook and Instagram stories, reels etc. I also do a little work on some ideas for badges…it;s all a bit experimental
I make some ramen for lunch then start work on my backdrop. First I project the image onto the cloth which I’ve taped to a wall in the live room at the studio and create a guide outline in chalk. Once I make some space I take the cloth down, spread it out on the floor having taped down some dust sheets first (I learned that I should do that the hard way after accidentally waiting the wallpaper making my first ever backdrop – Summerfield Blues – way back in 1990) then start painting. it’ll take another one or two coats…
Margaret has a late afternoon meeting about some community stuff and the guest – Lynne – comes up to the house for a coffee afterwards. It’s after 8pm when she leaves and I start the mushroom risotto.
