The Forgotten CV

I’ve been redesigning part of my website this weekend and giving some thought about what I want to do with all my various interests. I haven’t felt very creative of late and it’s been quite a long time since I did anything arty (excluding photography, but I’ve let that slip too). On going through some very old versions of my website (I store everything) I came across an old art CV from 2002 with a list of all the things I got up to after graduating from Uni in 1997. Turns out I used to be quite productive and had forgotten about a lot of these things.
So, do I use it as encouragement to get back into making arty stuff, or get totally depressed because I haven’t done much since 2001? Answers on a postcard.
