Hunt Emerson interview:
I’ve just finished a 3000-word interview with Birmingham cartooning genius Hunt Emerson, which should appear on artsnet during the coming week.

Fourth birthday:
My Digita project is now four years old! Still no birthday presents in the form of a funding cheque, regrettably.

Female fotos:
Nice photos on the site of Mick Payton, a Wolverhampton photographer. Mostly stock and commercial work; but also highly-coloured and fine-toned work with female models, which has earned him a partnership with Number 9 the Gallery in central Birmingham. The curator of Number 9, Lee Benson, tells me Mick’s personal work will make him a name to watch out for in the next few years. allaroundwww has an in-depth feature on Mick’s working methods in modelling photography. Usefully, Mick also has a fully set-up professional studio for hire in Wolverhampton.

Drool, drool…:
The new Fuji f601 is due out soon.
