My New Website & Blog Tour

My New Website, originally uploaded by e s c h e r.

Well for the first time in a long time I haven't made anything for more than a week. Has my long, prolific run come to an end? I don't think so but it is good to take a break every now and then. Working intuitively brings a lot of satisfaction when you produce something you like but you always have the prospect hanging over you that the next time you try that no ideas will pop out. I always feel that the next sculpture may be my last and as I plan them beforehand less and less you just have to hope the ideas will come when you want them to . The prospect of Autumn and all the wonderful colours it brings has me excited though and I feel a new chapter will begin then.

But still I have been busy. I've made big inroads into my next book and I have been putting together my new updated website which is what this post is all about. I would be grateful for any feedback, if there is anything you would specifically like to see, things to expand or remove or things that you like. You get the idea.

In the future I will be putting up exclusive content - films, photos and stories - on my site and I will be updating it regularly.

I have also entered my book into a competition. If you feel that you would like to vote for me and my book then you can by clicking the voting button on the right hand side. Thanks again for your words of encouragement and support, it means a lot.

I have one more request. I want to promote my book some more and I wonder whether any of you can help me out? I would like to organise a blog tour. This consists of, for anyone that is willing, putting together an interview where I answer some questions and on a particular date you publish the interview on your blog and I will also link to it from mine. This will benefit us both by allowing your contacts to hear about me and my contacts to hear about you. And of course I would be very willing to return the favour. If any of you are interested in helping me with this then please get in touch.

Oh and if any land artists or artists of the non-land variety (sea and air artists?!) are reading this and would like me to add a link to their site on my site, then drop me a line and I will sort that out. My list of links is quite short at the moment but the only reason is that I haven't had the time to do it properly yet.

Cheers everyone

Hello Richard,
I'd Love "interview" you for your tour. Let me know when and how you want to do this. The booklooks beautiful.
