At the end of 2019 I recorded a limited series show called: The studiOH! podcast.

The initial idea behind the show was to provide support for other artist starting on their journey. I’d planned regular seasons, guest interviews, art tips…the whole nine yards. But, well, we all know how 2020 ended up.

I strayed somewhat from my planned format and the episodes became more personal in nature, allowing invites into my own life and struggles with the business of making art. 

In the end, the studiOH! podcast became a limited series of 6 shows of about 15 minutes each.

Despite a false start, the show’s 6 episodes did receive favourable reviews and proved to be quite a success.

I have had numerous requests to record a second season but again, 2020 being what it was this proved a bit difficult. I needed to find a temporary but reliable source of income, the story of which you can read here in my journal post. However, in the spirit of continuity, I have now resurrected the concept of what the show ultimately became and I proudly announce the launch of: The StudiOH! Diaries newsletter

So, If you like the SP on the SD (see what I did there) and you’d like to receive bite sized updates on my work, news from the art world, a few design tips and probably more personal info about yours truly than you’d care to know about, drop your email and name below. 

Oh, and as a show off appreciation, you’ll also get 10% of your first piece of artwork from my Etsy shop. 

“Essays, observations, stories and therapy sessions from an emerging artist. With years in a desk job firmly behind him, Michael Statham embarks on a voyage of artistic discovery. Michael talks about making plans, shares mistakes and insecurities, makes observations, relates stories and divulges more than a little neuroses about making a living from creating art”.
