I'm dreadful for spending way too long online also at this time off night. It's a very lonely time but thankfully I have my Empire buddies to keep me company. I predominantly do marketing etc for my art in these wee, small hours, as I find it reaches out to a larger audience (ie. the States etc) but still, it doesnt take much to distract me and give me a reason to stay onine the odd hour or two longer!


Tell me about it! I've been getting up the last four days at 5am for the cricket but that's finished now but even though it is I'll still by going to bed around 4.30am most nights, since I've discovered downloading as well (or rather learnt how to do it properly) that's stolen a big portion of my soul and I stay up most of the night watching stuff most other people watch during the day or evening! What art is that you sell then Ninj? I take it your a former art student? I know very little about it to be honest although I do know Damien Hirst as he lives up the road, he's a nice guy, very reserved, now what you really expect given how, well to me anyway and I'm a complete art virgin, eccentric his work is. There's two huge stone elephants at the front of his garden though, that looks a little weird from the top of the woods up behind my house as you can see over it.

Student dept huh? Damn! I haven't had any but have heard all about it! I'm still at home also, hoping to get a studio sorted out within this year or next though, were I'll be spending a lot more of my time (painting and such). If you want Ninj's "Word's of Wisdom", I say just enjoy being at home while you can. I pay rent and all but I'm so grateful that it's not half as much as living in a flat in the middle of Edinburgh.


You lucky, lucky, LUCKY thing! To be fair, the SLC debt is bearable, they offer you good repayment plans and the interest is next to nothing as long as you keep paying off bit by bit, the bank overdraft on the other hand is an entirely different kettle of fish and Natwest aren't proving to be such the "friendly bank" they advertise on TV I can assure you! Yeah you're definitely right, I get along pretty well here too, it's just a long way from anything and the public transport is terrible, that's the biggest issue with living here. I've been to Edinburgh three times on holiday (twice to see the Military Tattoo) and I can imagine the city centre is very expensive for a basic, rented flat. I always remember the sun shining when we were there, three weeks of touring Scotland each time and I think it rained for a day and a half altogether at most!

Script he says? Also, I stare blankly at your username briefly, I thought you were one of the green people?


You thought I was a Mod?

And, it's actually scripts . A sit-com and a zombie movie but I'm working on the zombie flick just now. Really trying hard to think of something new to add to the genre. It's my own fault, really



Yeah I did. You weren't were you? I don't know anymore, sorry.

5 in the morning - ouch! I'm actually a self-taught artist and first started painting in Feb 2010, where it was love at first sight and I haven't looked back since. There's a wee link to my gallery in my sig if you wanted to check out my latest works.

That's very cool on Mr. Hirst! Do tell him Ninja says "hi!".

I'm glad it's not too bad for you then (the student debt). I've heard some proper horror stories that would put me off for life. I did consider going to study art but I'm selling now in an online gallery and have just completed Spaldy's band artwork, then I'll be working on producing film artwork and starting to that in June so I shouldn't complain really! The Millitary Tattoo is aceballs! I've only ever been once *hangs head* but I guess that's what happens when you're a local. Glad too that you got good weather - a rarity here but it's been hot the past week so fingers crossed!

Sorry about the late reply Ninj, I fell asleep on the night and can't do these things by halves as it does say in the title, 'Post between 3.00am and 4.00am' although technically I'm typing this out at 2.56am so I am partially cheating!

That's very cool on Mr. Hirst! Do tell him Ninja says "hi!".


That's cool, I have a lot of admiration for people who are self-taught in their arena of work, qualifications stand up today of course but there's something about desire, drive and passion to succeed at something without going down the, shall we say, manufactured route. It's like cheffing, the best chefs I know are self-taught or gained their certificates through working in kitchens for guys like Michael Caines and Rick Stein, rather than going to college and doing a three-year NVQ in which their taught the fine art of how to cut, prepare and dress a chicken, but don't know how to do 20 of them in the space of 30 minutes to a packed dining room of 70-odd people because they've never worked in a proper restaurant.

I checked out the link, like I said I no next to nothing about the subject, but I like your work, I'm especially impressed you've been doing it for such a short space of time! I see you've sold a few pieces, that must bring a great sense of worth into the whole thing, without wanting to make it sound money-orientated, but when people are willing to pay you a sum for something personal and independent to you that is as much a filler of enjoyment and pleasure as it is work, that must be a great feeling?

Yeah Mr Hirst is a fairly cool guy, I know his gardener pretty well and as a thank-you present for his work in 2008 he flew him out on a private jet to watch the Man United v Chelsea CL final in Moscow in a VIP box. That's not an everyday present from an employer now is it!? I know he occasionally does take on students for internships and work experience and whatnot, although I think his studios are more closer to Bristol and London than down here, I know there must be one somewhere though as the daughter of a friend of my mum's spent some time there. I don't know what it is about the village I live in down here, sure the scenery's beautiful etc. but it's not top-end countryside housing market yet both Billy Bailey and Danny Dyer have houses here (I've served Bailey several times in different places of work, I'm not a fan, I've seen Dyer cruise by once in his Bentley Sports, he looked well out of place) and Jude Law has a house somewhere close by. To be honest given how quiet it is during the winter and the complete lack of life some days, I could be living next door to Stephen Fry and I'm not even sure I'd know!

Yeah, to be honest given the current job market, the impending tuition fee rise and frankly, the standard of university teaching, I wouldn't waste your money. You've got a perfectly good and perfectly plausible way into the line of work you want to do with obviously some good contacts and starting points, why taken on 30,000 worth of debt to add a little piece of paper to that that is becoming more and more undesirable these days, especially given the perception of students created by those rioting thugs last year. Yeah it was pretty amazing, we got tickets kind of last-minute on both occasions as well, lord knows how, we were in our touring caravan so we moved around a fair bit but that was pleasing the weather was so good. Enjoyed the festival too, would love to do that again. Not in a caravan though, I'm tired of caravans, I just can't take them anymore. Ever watched two grown men try and unpack and put up an awning? It is the most painful experience in life, I think the record time for us was roughly three and a half hours to get everything sorted, and that's after a six-hour drive!

Hey! No problemo. I realised that the thread was kind of going "out of hours" that morning anyway.

I agree, there's a lot of "snobbery" that goes on in the art world and I'm sure it's the same in many occupations but I say, if someone is content in what they're doing and they're not harming anybody, then for heaven's sake, let them do it! After all, Jack Vettriano is a self-taught artist and look at the empire he has built for himself!

Thanks so much on your kind words, I realise I'm very much the novice but once I get my studio up and running I plan to really impress. I love it and honestly couldn't see myself doing anything else. I've just added my "Begotten" piece to the gallery, which I'll need to get set in mount on Tuesday and I always feel a little sparkle come to my eye when I see my gallery getting fuller. I used to have a lot more work on there but got really tough on myself and got rid of some, to which I regret a bit now but you live and learn I guess.

Again, I concur and thank you. I hope that I'm marketing myself correctly but it has been working fine so far.

Glad you enjoyed the 'burgh! There's some pretty spectacular sites to be seen here and Christmas is a fantastic time, as you'll get the German Markets visiting us and Princes Street is just a gem. The Festival's a bit too rowdy for me but they do do good comedy shows etc.

Anyhoo, glad to catch you, I'm off now to attempt to have an early night/ morning!

Have a rockin' Sunday Goodfella.
