I am having the most amazing time in London at the YouTube NextUp creator camp.we have sent the last two days holed up in an old pub in Shoreditch that has been turned into a shabby chic wonderland. Each room has about three sets in it and the garden it a wonderfully romantic corner of paradise. It’s a perfect place to make videos. And boy have we been making videos.

Today I’ve been featuring in two Italian videos a Dutch video and a French video too. We have all been collaborating and thinking of wild ways of featuring each other in our videos. It’s really made me think hard about making more collaborative videos.

I have to sign off now as I’ve got to get some editing done and I may well be up all night!

my 4000th Subscriber!

I’ve had my 4000th subscriber on YouTube today mx22man. I think that’s quite a milestone. They live in Australia and I’m waiting to see what they have chosen to be my celebratory video. You can visit their channel here. Their only upload so far is a video of someone farting, so they are obviously my kind of people!

Onward to the 5000th subscriber!

Less than 2 weeks to creator camp and I’m getting very excited!

YouTube NextUp Creator Camp

Details of the YouTube Creator Camp are beginning to filter through to me and I’m starting t get very excited. I’ve been teamed up with British winners, therhexperience, who do improvised comedy and danslapeaudemartin, who is French and makes beautiful and surreal episodes in a drama that his audience participate in. Our Team leader is Michael Stephens who you can see on one of his channels here.

We have to collaborate with each other and make a video each reflecting our own channel but using the talents of the others as well. It should be fascinating. We are having a week of lectures and demonstrations and hands on experience at a film studio. I’ll be blogging tweeting and vlogging all week!

I still have a book and a half of artwork for my Olympia series to complete before then, which is why I’ve not been blogging much recently. Confined to garrets drawing like a maniac to get the series finished on time for the printers. I’ll get there!
