  1. It’s great that so many people are looking at your blogs. I’ve just read an audiocast at
    which talks about getting the right people to your exhibition meaning clients and curators. I think this applys to your blog, website and twitter too!

    I looked at my ‘ical’ schedule I will be able to go to your exhibition.

  2. Hello Dean this will be my last comment on your blogs for a few months. I will be busy looking at the blogs of other students at cov uni.

    I am more convinced than ever the right course for me is at Coventry University especially after looking a Jonathon Worth’s latest tweet this afternoon.

    I’ve looked at the sensory mish-mash project part of ‘phonar’ which at first I didn’t understand but now do after looking at a blog by Marta Kochanek and has given me ideas.

  3. Okay well thanks for your input Chris. Going to Coventry was a good decision for me. Remember that only about 1 in 10 who apply to get into Coventry get accepted so get yourself sorted in good time. All the best

  4. Mindset “Rejected” already. I should prepare for the worst. I doubt I will be able to compete with the best of those fresh out of college. My old portfolio is weak and I doubt I will come up with anything new that will stand out especially when I’m working full-time. Still will try.
