Christmas is past and the New Year rapidly approaches.
I was asked recently about the drop in posts to the blogs. Both Bellebyrd and Blakkbyrd have less posts this year than previously. 2008 has been an interesting year. Most of the past six months has been taken up with travel and relocations, not to mention learning new languages and the establishment of the Byrdsong language blog.
All this is expected to change in 2009. At present I am surveying my current subscriptions and cleaning the slate for the new year. With a return to Australia there will be a greater coverage of the Australian art scene, and a lesser need to follow the day to day minutiae of Europe.
This month has seen the creation of indexes for Urban art on Blakkbyrd for the past four years, an extensive and time consuming task. Similarly, there are new indexes for Printmaking on Bellebyrd blog. Please enjoy. I intend to write more indexes on new media, art theory and copyright issues. Eventually all the individual themes on the two blogs will be covered.
To all my readers, I wish you the best in the New Year and hope that you will continue to enjoy the blogs in 2009.
