Inktober and other distractions

Likely story. I’d originally written this post in November but never finished it.  0ne of the last times I updated this creative wonderland of nonsense, I was neck-deep in making postcards and sending them to friends, strangers and pets all over. Since then, I’ve been doing some bookbinding, and in October, I jumped into Inktober! It’s a fun challenge. What’s even more enjoyable is seeing the work of other artists. I’d enjoyed watching the challenge

Lady in 4A

Nobody had seen her in nearly a quarter of a century. The tenants downstairs her could hear her shuffling across the floor every now and then, but the woman who was rumoured to be somewhere between 60 and 90 years old remained largely a mystery.

Tom had loved sitting

Eddie's dilemma, flash fiction

Flash Fiction // Eddie’s Dilemma

It was weeks. No. Months. Months since the last tortured screams were heard in the streets. Eddie had holed up in his apartment, hoping to avoid whatever was out there. Through a tiny sliver of daylight, he glimpsed the hell that lay outside. It wasn’t pretty. Not until his cupboards were bone dry did he dare to go outside. But finally, with much trepidation, armed with a golf club and

Cheers to a new website

Cheers to Another New Website

If you’ve had a look around, you know that I make a lot of different things. Including websites. This is just another one. Whether graphic design, illustration or photography, I’ve always aimed to separate my creative pursuits and divide them across various websites and social profiles. Well, that’s just dumb. I’ve always felt I should be focusing on one thing at a time and that is simply not me. Aside
