Business update - April 2017

Posted by Dave Bull at 11:13 PM, April 21, 2017 [Permalink]

We here at Mokuhankan have a kind of ‘Mission Impossible’ facing us at present: how to shift me away from my office and management chores, and get me back to the carving bench and YouTube work. We know what we need to do - hire people to take over those office jobs - but we can’t really afford to do that.

I thought (for about two seconds) of monetizing the YouTube videos, but nobody nobody nobody wants that, so I’ve decided to go a different route, and have opened a Patreon page where committed fans can show their support for this.

Please have a look, and I hope that some of you will consider taking part. This video gives a bit more background on the 'Catch 22' that has been facing me for quite some time now:

New video - making a kuchi-e woodblock print

Posted by Dave Bull at 1:28 AM, March 31, 2017 [Permalink]

Has it been nearly a year since I did that (overly long) video presentation talking about the old carver Susumu Ito? I guess so ...
