The good news is that the 65 Chevy pickup blog had about 12,ooo fans in it's premiere year - some from as far away as Russia. But I haven't written in a while so lots of people have been asking G and Lulu what happened. Guess I had blogger’s block. The truth is the team of Markus (Lulu) & Genova (G) and yours truly Ole Blu, was having infrastructure problems that set my headlights into a spin. Lulu’s work was taking her away from me and G and let’s face it – without Lulu I can’t write. It took a while before communications between the team members got ironed out. It always does where humans are involved. G and Lulu – they’ve been all over the place – making changes, madding about or should I say nomading about. You’d think they were guests on Jerry Springer the way friends and relatives worried they were gonna split up for good or something. I admit, at first I was insulted cause Lulu was getting around on airplanes; trading slow mo travel for rapid transit, but - whatever works. It’s silly to think that just cause we’re not physically together all the time means there’s no magic. When you’re an artist all you got is magic. A team with the strength of Ole Blu, G and Lulu can transcend physical boundaries - especially as that team expands and contracts depending on our travels. I say transcend but that makes it sound too easy. Struggle through would be better. The way I see it, the artist world (and that includes art lovers) should be a supportive community that extends beyond borders. So while G and I have been working with the amazingly creative community in Safety Harbor developing their new art and music center, SHAMc, Lulu’s been working in Montreal and San Francisco. It took a while before we could sort it all out but Lulu and I decided to communicate via the internet. It’s a new chapter in Ole Blu’s blog all about the travels of a nomad artist - Louise Markus - and she's a real Lulu. So stay tuned - next blog entry will be catching up with Lulu in her studio in San Francisco’s Mission District.
