I must apologise for such a long- kept silence.
But this post, which I have decided to be my very last one here, was not an easy one to lure out, I promise.
Suddenly it was just there, the 'stop'- thought, and despite the arguments I've given myself
to make a better choice - I had already made up my mind.
It is difficult to explain why, but there is this little gut feeling telling me it is enough now.
After so many years with The Other Sketchbook, after all the joy shared and connections made,
but also after many a time doubting directions and tellings, it is time to close up.
Enough of my snapshots and overflowing scribblings, weird green foods and gallery reviews.
Now I need someone to hire me instead.
- Take me as you like; a writer/ art director/ photographer/ illustrator/ cook...
Well, alright, that would be nice, but from fun to facts; sometimes life is also about letting go.
Though I must admit it feels as much sad as it feels right.
My website elevineberge.com is under construction though, so you can always pop over there in a couple
of weeks' time to update your highness on my professional self. And however much I behold this love/hate
relationship to the internet at the moment, you should by now know where to find me both on flickr, twitter and
And about the rest of the incredible New York photos I had promised you;
I am right now sitting with the table full of glue, pens, cuttings and findings,
making Lucas a truly amazing photo album from our transatlantic travellings.
- Come visit me and you can flicker through that as much as you like!
And we can tell each other stories, and make each other raw shakes, and visit exhibitions and
take lots of pictures of each other!!! And and!
That would be great. Take it a an open invitation!
We certainly need each other in our lives, there's so many other ways of doing it.
This coming semester is the last one of my bachelor and I can tell you I am exited to
(hopefully) graduate with style and embark on what is waiting behind the finish-line!
All the exiting curatorial possibilities, the inspiring collaborations waiting out there,
the crazy artists to write about, and the by this date yet non-existing professions and titles
in this vast and ever changing art world.
One shall never say never, right? So who knows...
maybe I one day will start a new journey. With a new Sketchbook.
But for now, thank you so much for all the wonderful, enthusiastic and inspiring feedback from you followers.
Without you The Other Sketchbook would never survived such a long time.
I really hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.
See you on the other side xx
