Mac love & a round-up of things on the web

I will start this post by announcing,  ehm... (clears throat) that I am now the proud owner of a MacBook. After much research (along the lines of but why is it better?) I was finally convinced. I am a convert. Love it. Downside....I am SO busy art making for my exhibition I have not had enough time to play and upload stuff and most of my pics still on the PC. So excuse this pic-limited post, but I can offer you this snapshot of how the old PC is now being used (it is on its last legs!)...

Now for a brief web round up...

For those of you who are artists looking to sell, UneARTh is a new online gallery (international) with 10 % commission. I just sold a piece through it (very exciting). Do check it out as its new and they are looking for artists to populate it.

Whether or not you are a mosaic artist, check out this video about the installation of an awesome (and huge!) mosaic at the University of Iowa. It is made by Gary Drostle (and a host of helpers) who is an amazing public art mosaicist from South London. To see a pic of another of his most amazing mosaics, read this blog post of mine (its a bit sad, I warn you!)

The latest online version UK Handmade Magazine here (not just for Brits!).  Great features, including hot to carve a squash lantern (very lovely).

Off to bed...busy day nipping ahead!
