Self promotion...big up the CBIG massive!

The whole point of this blog is to keep me organized to keep people up to date with whats going on art wise. To ensure that things are going on I need to get myself :out there". This means self promotion and I think I have cracked the code.
Basically you just have to exaggerate… that the right word? Probably, I have seen damn right lies actually but I think the basic equation is something like:

Studied art in Japan, UK, America and throughout Europe
* visited Japan, UK, America and Belgium on a Stag weekend . May or may
not have seen some art. Countries also may not have actually been
visited. Possibly could find them on a map though.
10 years + arts experience
* Scribbling on walls in crayon since the age of three.
Successful artist
* my mum thinks I’m cool.
Exhibition now touring
* I left one of my sketch books on the bus today.
Coming soon
* Bored at current office job, wished for better things.

Despite this I do actually have something showing at the moment.....

It begins....

Hopefully this will get me and keep me a little more organized........within what I do art wise and letting people know what is happening anyway.

I had planned to start this three years ago.

See you in three years!!
