Hi Everyone,
Excuse me for repetition (I have just written a similar post on IG) but in case there is someone here who doesn't also read IG (there probably isn't) I would like to announce that I now have a blog on my art.

It started because my tv went bust so I no longer had entertainment in the evenings (therefore I decided to make my own). Plus I would at regular intervals receive emails from people who had seen my work, always asking the same questions ie what materials do I use? How long does the work take? Things like that.

So it occurred to me to start a blog where I could have permanent information about my ideas, art materials, methods etc.

What could be interesting to Tsuruko Maiko readers is that I have a couple of my recent portraits of Mameyuri-san and Ichifuku-san on the blog in work-in-progress stages so that you can see how I build a drawing step by step.
I have a page on geisha, a page called "Failures!" about the ones that go in the bin, as well as pages on my other subjects ie Paris.

I hope you take a look and perhaps even elect to follow the blog if you like it. The link is http://juliepodstolski.wordpress.com/

Thank you!!!

Thank you Stéfan, Blanche and Mousy - thanks so much for looking.
I have just finished a new drawing (though it is of Paris this time). I will be photographing it within the next couple of days, making a work-in-progress page and writing a post. Even though it isn't Kyoto, it is a piece HIGH in labour so hopefully will be interesting to view as a work in progress.

Oh - and it is definite now - I will be in Kyoto during 26, 27 and 28 March so crossed fingers that I get good photos for future drawings. (It is always a matter of pure chance and good fortune.)

I have just finished a new Pontocho drawing. While it does not contain maiko or geiko, I think it gives the viewer something of the magical atmosphere of Pontocho as night draws in. I have written a post on it plus there is also a new page on my blog where you can see it in stages of its construction 'work-in-progress 4: Here Comes the Night'. http://juliepodstolski.wordpress.com/

This week's post is called "It Ain't Necessarily So" and is about cosplay maiko vs real maiko. I really spent a lot of time composing this one so please take a look. Of course it won't be telling you anything you don't know as you guys are experts. I'm trying to inform people who don't know anything about this subject. Good photo by my daughter in the post of Ichifuku-san and Ichitomi-san from 2008.

:D Thank you so much, Shigemi.
I have written a blog post this week about Onihide, Flickr friends and a drawing which I did of one of his photos (with his permission I might add).
My post is called "Spirited Away". I do hope you enjoy it.

I sure hope I get some good photos for future drawings but as I don't have any particular event, opportunites will be in the lap of the gods!
