The new website went live today. A few simple things about chrisshepherd.net;
1. About – News will be updated and reflect anything relatively “newsworthy” that has happened to or is associated with the artist. This will include news of the soon to happen or news of the recent past. Nothing in here will be conceptual or idea driven. There will be no “Fake News” and little-to-no opinion.
2. About – Bio, CV and Contact pages should be relatively straight forward and up to date at all times. This includes the picture of the artist that was taken in about June of 2017. Note the significant cat scratch between the eyes. That has since healed and luckily it did not leave a scar.
3. Work – This section Is all the things the artist has printed, made or performed. There is nothing here that was not exhibited or produced and sold in some way. Well, that’s not 100% accurate. All the work you see here has been produced, not all of it has sold.
4. Sketchbook – This will become the theoretical, conceptual or WIP portion of the site. Here the artist plans on keeping a virtual sketchbook of ideas so you can follow along with their life and get a frightening glimpse into the workings of a neurotic artist’s mind. This might contain opinion, commentary or even swearing. Please don’t be offended. The plan is to weed out this section of the site frequently and only keep entries for ideas that might actually make it to execution some day. It may contain pie-in-the-sky thoughts, but that’s the fun of it.
