Hello Jadene

Apologies for not being in touch. I’ve been up and down to London a bit re a show I’m in there. I have an idea that may get us going. How do you like the idea of a postal exchange? You make a drawing / something on a flat surface and send it to me to work on. It goes back and forth between us until one of us decides it’s finished.

We could set some rules: the drawing has to be about the day we work on the piece, etc. Let me know what you think.

Hi Phill thanks for getting in touch, don’t worry about not messaging sooner, I noticed you've been busy with exhibitions from your social media. The postal drawing exchanges seem like a great idea, I've been struggling to come up with fresh ideas and ways to get going with my work, so this will hopefully help me get motivated.

I noticed that themes of your current work involve the homeless a lot, and funnily enough there has been an increase of the homeless migrating from the city centre to the streets of Beeston, which has been shocking to say the least, as it’s not something I’ve ever witnessed before whilst living here. So perhaps this is something that could come into play with our pieces, or maybe something to juxtapose the theme/subject of homelessness

Hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards,

I'll hopefully send a drawing tomorrow.

My address is …

What's yours?


01:02:19 8:38

Oh thankyou, my address is…

Kind regards

Did you get the drawing Jadene? Phill

09:02:19 11:52

Hi phill, yes I did. Sorry there’s been a delay on me sending it back, I’ve been working a lot and I can’t decide wether I’m happy with what I’ve added onto it, apologies. Jadene

09:02:19 11.54

No need to apologise, just wondered if it had got there. Don't worry so, just do it and send it. There'll be lots of others. Phill

I’m about to send the second piece back to you. I’m thinking this one could almost be complete. Jadene

01:06:19 12:24

Hi phill,

I’m posting 4 pieces today, was just wondering how many have we got left to do? I seem to have lost track how many we’ve been working on and completed
