Every single project I did at University this year, including digital illustrations, pattern designs, comic illustrations, poster designs, photography, 2D animation, 3D animation, and visual effects! Long story short I did a lot!Read More
The mind is a time machine,
A look back upon our lives machine,
Think forward with our mind machine.
But there’s a difference between what you saw
And what you see, through a growing and different
Set of the same eyes.
I’m told I was conjured from a flickering light,
Or dancing phosphenes –
Dots of red and blue and green
Arranging to become me.
But I don’t remember it any more than
A child remembers being born.
Then again, I don’t remember life at all.
This is a gallery of all the work I’ve completed in a recent 2 week life drawing course at university. I also discuss how I have improved throughout, how this has changed my perspective on drawing, and how I am always amazed at how much I can create in such a short period of time.Read More
I took these pictures on the first of March and it’s strange to think how much I’ve changed in just the three months since then. But I hesitate to call it change because I haven’t morphed into anything else, I’ve simply grown. These pictures were taken to document a new hair cut and like myself,…Read More
Thinking for the future is often thinking for ‘one day’, and while in some instances it is an extremely beneficial thing to think about, I’ve realised that balance is key.

We should be making decisions that won’t be to our future’s detriment, but we shouldn’t be trying to make the future happen too fast, which is something that even I have been caught up in. Planning a whole list of projects and starting several all at once is just trying to get too many finished as soon as possible, when I should adopt a one at a time approach.Read More
On the importance of asking ourselves who we want to be, and setting goals to work towards, rather than escaping into social media and comparing ourselves to thousands of other people living thousands of lives we cannot live.Read More
I think I’ve maybe learned more from this experience ending than I did during the actual writing. Now I’m reflecting rather than being caught up in it and I’ve realised the importance in making time for myself that isn’t just mindlessly watching Netflix or YouTube. So, this is something I’m going to try and make an effort to incorporate into my life, because I think it has an impact for the better.Read More
a rusted reflection,
speckled and smudged
to wipe away is only
to smear the picture
a sun-bright ghost
in a hazy window
obscured by the dusty
remnants of raindrops
