17 May 2021: In case you missed it, here’s what’s happening.
We Are Moving
For the past year Katie and I have put 100% of our efforts into growing our respective businesses. Now it’s time to level up. She needs more than a corner of the living room to use as studio space. I can no longer get by working at the kitchen table. So over the next few months things are going to be in flux as we tear down, relocate, and set things up again. This means that some projects will be going on hiatus until in a position to pick them up again. Others will come back in another form. Some will be gone, because they’re not generating revenue or somehow vital to future growth. I will use this space to provide weekly updates on what’s going on.
Aside from these updates, the blog is currently on hiatus. Once the projects listed below start rolling I will resume posting more regularly. As I have finally come to accept that blogs are dead, this will become more of a support system for the podcast, zine, and other media projects, rather than its own thing.
A new weekly newsletter will be launching in August, centered on my current running themes of minimalism, defiance, and inner peace. This will be an actual email newsletter powered by MailChimp. You can check the Newsletter page for the most current information, and to subscribe now so you don’t miss out.
I will be launching a new monthly zine in August. Issues will be themed, but the main topic will always be minimalism. The zine will be offered in both print and electronic formats. Details have yet to be finalized, but it will likely be made available through my Patreon first, with digital copies for sale on other venues at a later date. You can check the Zine page for the most current information.
The podcast is also on hiatus, pending the move to new studio space and the acquisition of better recording equipment. The topics and format will remain the same as the 6 “proof of concept” episodes currently available for free on my Patreon. You can check the Podcast page for the most current information.
Dancing Lights Press
Last week my publishing company released The Early Middle Ages, written by Henry Osborn Taylor and edited by me. You can visit the Dancing Lights Press website for a full rundown of upcoming releases and the latest information. The company also has a newsletter, which will be relaunching in July.
Katie Kinsman, Artist
To facilitate the move, Katie will be shutting down her web shop on 12 June. No orders will be taken after that date. When the store reopens (late July) not everything that is currently available will return. So if there’s something you truly want, get it now! You can visit Katie’s website to view her shop and read her highly informative blog posts about life as a fine artist and art educator.
