The power of getting started

I’ve been thinking about the power of process a lot lately. More so because I’ve had a few identity projects and these are where I feel my process really pays off. I was talking with another designer and they mentioned that they always go to screen and begin design concepts. Each to their own but the thought … Continued

I know these people – I have no idea who they are

Like many people I commute by train to work. I’ve done it on and off for about six years now (I had two years off for good behaviour when I got a different job). It can at times be frustrating or tiring but I’m well aware it’s not the worst I could have by any … Continued

Some stuff that happened – part sixteen

I’d originally planned to do one of these types of posts every three months as kind of seasonal round-up. It’s been eight months since my last one. A lot has happened, but don’t worry I’m not going to dump eight months worth of pictures, this is a special of sorts. Earlier this year I decided … Continued

Get on with it

Get on with it I was complimented today on my writing and it gave me a renewed confidence. Enough so to come back here (probably briefly) and write. On the train home I was mulling over what my subject might be and it struck me that the spurring on of the compliment would be the … Continued

If … Continued

Specifically reading science fiction. Yes, science fiction films will often give you a spectacular vision of the world they are set in but they are someone … Continued

Exhibition at Worcester Arts Workshop

I’m excited about this. No sooner had I added this to my goal list for the year then I got a call from Worcester Arts Workshop letting me know they had a free space. It’s been an intense few weeks of preparations, creating new pieces and updating some old ones, but I’m pretty much ready … Continued

Some stuff that happened – part thirteen

I’ve not been keeping up with these lately. As such there’s just another image dump this time. Be honest though, that’s what you all prefer anyway isn’t it?

Some stuff that happened – part twelve

Regular readers will have noticed that it’s been quiet around here lately. The last few months have been pretty hectic with a great deal of change and I just haven’t had the time to keep posting as regular as I normally like to. I’ve yet again not taken my camera out as much as I … Continued
