The idea for my next project I got last summer when I found the magazines Classic Rock, Kerrang, Guitar and Q in a thrift-shop. While reading them I realized in what a totally different world these musicians live in. Since I am in the mood to create another book I have been thinking about this subject. My conclusion is that almost every profession has it's own set of rules. I know, it isn't a big revelation, on the other hand it is an explanation why a lot of people stick to one profession. It takes a lot of trial and error if you want to shift to a totally different line of work. Not only do you need to learn a new trade but it takes awhile before you are aware about the unwritten rules of it.
For this project I use totally different materials than I'm used to. I chose woollen thread, jute and leather, in a way to create the same experience as if I'm learning a new trade.

Since finishing Soul Food, which felt kind of sad, I needed some different music to shift my mood. Had no idea but than I stumbled upon Bryan Adams and I have to admit my heart of music has fallen in love. Before I just knew one song of him, The summer of 69, that isn't much when you realize the man made 16 albums over the last 32 years. So to express this new found love I decided to post each day of this project a song of Bryan. This is the first one with the Who and it is called Behind blue eyes.
Have a wonderful monday.
