It’s Been A Heavy Day, But I Have Things To Tell

I have just realized that it’s been a week, A WEEK since I last posted. That was not intentional, the last seven days were just everywhere and my routine was thrown off-kilter. Today I'm going to let you know about the things that have been getting conjured up creatively and what’s been going on in other corners… Continue reading It’s Been A Heavy Day, But I Have Things To Tell

The Kid Who Loved The Dark – The Groke

If, like me, you grew up in the 90s, it's more than likely you watched Moomin, the Japanese-Finnish-Dutch animation television series, also known as 'Moominvalley,' 'Tales from Moominvalley,' and 'Adventures from Moominvalley.' And it's likely you had a favourite character. My favourite happened to be the Groke. Up until a few years ago, my knowledge… Continue reading The Kid Who Loved The Dark – The Groke

For The Sake Of Dark Art – Sophie Lécuyer

Anyone else think this month is going by disturbingly fast? The more I urge February to just slow the fuck down, the quicker it goes. It's the end of my third week with no social media and I'm breathing easier. I think I'll write something lengthy about the experience when the end of the month… Continue reading For The Sake Of Dark Art – Sophie Lécuyer

Art Of Hel

At my Waldorf school, World Mythology played a significant role in the curriculum, though it was Norse Mythology that had a lasting impact on me.

January’s Self-Portraits

I berated myself for not taking more risks, for not exploring dozens of new editing techniques, for not refining the techniques I'd… Continue reading January’s Self-Portraits

Making A Self-Portrait In An Hour

I set myself a challenge today - to try and create a self-portrait in an hour. This is something I'd never attempted to do before, nor even thought about doing prior to this morning. Considering I can sometimes take the best part of a day to create a single portrait that I'm happy with, creating… Continue reading Making A Self-Portrait In An Hour

May Your Hunger Guide You – Words For Creatives Going Forward (Part I)

May your hunger guide you through nights wilder still. Nafre. I thought I'd start this post off with a quote from Nafre, a ridiculously wise friend of mine. Last week he signed a message off with 'May your hunger guide you through nights wilder still,' and I've been using it as a source of creative… Continue reading May Your Hunger Guide You – Words For Creatives Going Forward (Part I)

The First Week Of January & How It Went

I had the grandest of plans for the first seven days of January 2021. I was going to write and take a photo everyday and write some more and drink lots of water and consume less salt and journal and run every morning and go to bed at 10.30 and get up at 7 and… Continue reading The First Week Of January & How It Went
