Talking of design reminds me of the last bit of design work I did recently for our DVD cover. The picture of Anja and I was taken by David whilst we were out filming one day on the cliffs. I liked the design of the template for a DVD disc and decided to incorporate the idea into the design. The cover picture I used is a still from the film. Most of it was put together using Adobe Illustrator as I wanted a Vector programme.
It occurs to me that this DVD would make an excellent stocking filler for someone looking for something completely different and locally produced…..there are copies currently for sale at Mounts Bay Contemporary Gallery in Penzance, or on-line if you follow the links via our KerstenWoods website.
Paintings also make excellent presents. A couple of our German friends from our B&B days popped in recently and bought some paintings for their new home as a Christmas present to themselves. It is so nice to think of my work going to good homes. And I happily bartered a drawing of whippets recently in exchange for some legal advice. The drawing is now mounted, framed, wrapped with festive paper and sitting under the Christmas tree waiting to surprise his girlfriend.
Just some thoughts!
