For the Robert & Jesse (Tainted Love) work I have been using old post cards, most unwanted rather than used, accept for the last batch I found. A batch that contained post cards from as far back as the 1950's and had been sent from A-B. I put these aside, and then some more turned up in the next batch I found, I put them aside, and so it continues. Its turning into a a little collection.
The post card is important at the moment, it feels fan cherished or made, can be passed around, pinned in different locations or stored under your bed in a tin. They are bought, picked up for free, used as mementoes or posted to the object of ones desire (wouldnt catch me doing that, noooooo) ahem.
Anyway, other than that and with Tainted Love getting closer after a good few months in the making, I'm thinking about my own obsessions and fan behaviour more and more and adding to Fan Book paintings, these exist mainly on Face Book at the moment but a few will be getting an outing as part of Fan Fiction Empire at The Residence Gallery soon.
Jane Eyre is out on DVD, oh blimey, this is good and improves with watching, again and again, and again... Its nice to see a darker working of this sort of period drama rather than the (although I love it) sightly soft focus feel of the Pride & Prejudice re make. Phwoar!
