Ok, so i’m trying to work and be productive, now that i’m self-employed, but things just are not going right. The last portrait commission i did went fine, no problems at all. This time though, i am having serious paper issues! I just can’t get my pastels to stay on the paper! Every time i try and put a new layer down it just lifts the previous layer off and make the paper so...
I’m sorry, but I need a rant. Please excuse my language. I am so fucking pissed off with my head, and the doctors that are supposedly treating me. I have had a constant headache for over a year now! Granted sometimes the pain is a little less than other days, but it’s always there, at least in the background. And it is always annoying. And now it’s stopping me from doing so...
Helloooo! Yes i am still alive! I’m sorry i havn’t been posting for ages, i’m currently working on getting my business officially up and running. I’ve been working with a couple of enterprise schemes to get me all ready for running my own business. I’m so close to actually starting it now. It’s quite scarey. I’ll be doing a big launch on my facebook page...
A review of Zero2Illo illustration conference
So, I spent a very interesting day at the Zero2Illo conference the other day. The first, purely illustration conference, and it was right on my door step. Brilliant! There were several panels throughout the day, consisting of illustrators, publishers, an agent, and a tablet designer. Everyone had something different to say on each question, as is always the case when you ask a group of creatives a...

I has dreadlocks!! :D I have 2 naturals that i am going to let mature (i think), and i have 2 syntethics. One is about the same length as my hair, but the other one is considerably longer. It looks a bit daft, considering the face that the rest of my hair is just it’s normally frizzy self, but i really don’t care. I’m quite enjoying being a weirdo at the moment :D I am...
I now have some really pretty black and burgendy synthetic hair, ready to make my own dreadlocks :D So, does anyone have any tips for me, or any good forums/videos that i should check out before i get started?
Much to my parents disappointment, i am playing around with putting dreadlocks in my hair :D I want synthetics, but i can’t afford them at the moment and i can’t con my mum in to putting them in for me, so i’ll just have to dread my real hair for the moment. It look completely rediculous but i actually don’t care. I’m enjoying looking like a freak. Haha. I’ve...
Gahhh! Why am i still loosing weight?! I try and eat properly (although i am skipping breakfast at the moment because it makes me feel sick) and i am still loosing wieght! I know, i know, i shouldn’t complain, but when i breathe in i can see my ribs!

Well, i am back from London! I just spent the last week exhibiting my work, with a friend, as part of the Islington Contemporary Art and Design Fair at the Candid Arts gallery in Islington, London. I didn’t sell as much as i would have liked, but it was my first exhibition since leaving uni, and it was in London! So i’m pretty happy. How many other people can say that within 4months of...
Hello everyone. I am really sorry i havn’t been very active lately, it’s not been a very good few weeks. First off i was really busy trying to get some work done for the Quad in Derby. I have created a children’s activity pack for their current exhibition. So that took a long time. Then we found out that one of my dogs has cancer and there isn’t anything we can do about...
