The First Time

Everything you will ever need to know about me exists online. No, really, it does. You'd be surprised just how much personal detail has been exposed via the wonders of the World Wide Web since the 1990's, but to make it easier for you I've put together some notable moments in personal history. The 'Writing as … Continue reading The First Time

Pictures at an Exhibition: Three

Having pinned up my plans for October, it is time to go into a little more detail. The idea is simple: tell a story using haiku, pictures and with a musical background. It is a love story, because of the running joke that this is all I'm really good at. The #Soundtracking2018 Playlist will be the … Continue reading Pictures at an Exhibition: Three

Pictures At An Exhibition: Two

There's going to be back-to-back posts here today (mostly allowing schedule to get back up to date) and also a commitment to a project that was started last year, and which proved to be of significant personal enjoyment to try again this year.

What this … Continue reading #ThinkTober Week Three

#ThinkTober Week Two

I found this space on a part of communal land in my hometown that forms part of a cycle … Continue reading #ThinkTober Week Two

#ThinkTober Week One

Most of the time, when I have an idea, there's nearly always been a moment in the development process when I regret it. However, that has not yet happened with Think-Tober. In fact, between you and me, this is the most fun I've had with a project since I came up with the Patreon at the start of this year. … Continue reading #ThinkTober Week One

Train in the Distance

It may have escaped your notice that October starts on Sunday. A number of my art friends alerted me to a content prompt that takes place around this time: Inktober. This encourages artists to pick up a pen and paper and produce 'traditional' drawings... which one then reproduces virtually for promotion in an social media outlet of … Continue reading Train in the Distance
