Never thought I’d be moving into my first permanent home in two years in the midst of a UK lockdown due to a pandemic! Remember when we moved to Barcelona, planning to save enough money to buy a house in a year and Brexit ruined it? Well, I was hoping this time would be easier. […]
On the fourth episode of ‘Promote The Hell Out Of It’ I had a great time talking to musician & journalist; Jak Hutchcraft. This conversation meant a lot to me, not just because Jak is a wonderful human being with a wealth of knowledge and interesting banter, but also because his band; WACO, mean the […]
On the second episode of ‘Promote The Hell Out Of It’ I had the absolute joy of catching up with our good friend and incredible street artist; Sara Lucas (aka Hello The Mushroom). We talked about some of her incredible collaborations, finding work/life balance, using art as an escape and lots, lots more. These are […]
Towards the end of last year I caught up with Seán McGowan to chat about the incredible year he had in 2018, getting to talk about Brexit with Billy Bragg, sharing a tour bus with The Levellers, taking a band on tour with him and paying them properly, selling out home town shows and everything in […]
When make up artist and generally all around creative, Alex Box asked me to help give her new project a shout out, how could I refuse? This wonderful being has helped me learn a lot about make up, art, being creative and being myself over the years, I owe her a lot. I’m very lucky […]
If you were to take my phone and have a little scroll through my Instagram stream, the common themes are colourful hair, enamel pins, indie fashion & beauty brands and food.

I’m having a little social media detox at the moment to give some space to focus on creating new creative projects and writing more. I know social media has a negative impact on me, so I’m being wise about how I use it. I’m still using Instagram daily, because I love my carefully curated feed […]
Don’t you just love learning a new word? I discovered the art of Naoshi on Instagram and instantly fell in love with her colourful, kawaii and vintage inspired nostalgic art. It wasn’t until I looked into her colourful creations further that I realised that her primary material of choice is colourful sand! I have vague […]
For my next trick for #Inktober I went along another nostalgic route with a series of creature creations inspired by Greek myths and legends. These stories are ones I grew up with from my Dad reading the Iliad and the Odyssey to me as a little one, to obsessively watching Xena & Hercules on Channel 5. One of my first memories of seeing stop motion animation was the creature creation of special effects legend, Ray Harryhausen, particularly in Clash of the Titans (1918, Dir. Desmond Davis) which I still dig today.
