Like a Thundercat

I’m on the move, again. Back in Calgary as it happens. It’s playoff time and for the first time in a while the Flames have won their division, getting to experience playoff hockey again is one the reasons I’m here now. Seeing friends and not standing still are some of the others. The plan is…

Meat Free Streaming

About four years ago I stopped eating meat and phased out animal products in other areas of my life. I remember my mum was disappointed because it meant that I wouldn’t wear the belt she gave me for Christmas a few months earlier. It felt like quite a big change at the time in more…

Posting Conflicts

The act of posting itself is pretty straightforward but I’m often conflicted about whether to click the publish button or not and it doesn’t end there. I have to decide whether I want to share the link or do anything to promote what I’ve typed. The two questions I ask myself are typically; Why? and…

Bandcamp or Spotify?

Hello. If anyone reads this I’d be interested in your thoughts here. Perhaps it’s not a case of either/ or, maybe it can be both. I’ve used Spotify for a number of years now, paying £9.99 per month for their premium/ no advert service. I convince myself one of the big plus points of the…

Shop Idea

I’m thinking of adding a shop element to the site. The idea I’m toying with is for there to be two sections to the shop. I would have physical items for sale like notebooks and cavans prints with a turn around time of about 5-7 working days (I’ll confirm that if and when it goes…

Behind the Mask

Hello. As you may or may not know I’ve been working on a serious of photos involving a mask I bought. I thought it would be good to try and use it in some different shots that have been heavily edited. It has been a lot of fun but I’m not really sure what it’s…

Can we work together?

Hi again. I thought it was time to post about where we are now. I’m still working with Ledcom to see where we can go with the idea of getting a business off the ground. There has been plenty of twists and turns but I’m looking into some kind of PR work or art promotion.…

(Part of) My Story

I’ve made a new connection on LinkedIn recently who gave a brief introduction about them self and some of their recent experiences with the direction they are heading in. I felt like I could use that as inspiration to write a little about my own story. It’s maybe not that exciting for some people but…

Things to Come

Things seem to busy although as of yet I don’t have much to show for it. I’ve been putting some work into meeting people in the local community to chat about more events to showcase local talents and there seems to be a lot of interest. Finding a space and working out funding seems to…

Hope Centre Exhibition

Well, my exhibition in Hope Centre (Ballymena) is now up and running. It has been quite an experience picking out images to display and then installing them. Thanks to Jonathan and the others at Hope for the opportunity. All being well they’ll be well received and might help move along the creative conversation that Hope…

The Plan

I took a little break. I needed to. I stopped Twittering, writing, reading and using my camera. All I did was walk and listen to music. I find it interesting how musicians write words about my situation even when I don’t know them. At the time I went through my schooling, creativity was something you…

Back, again.

Is it too early for a review of the year? I’m back at this again to give it another go. I might’ve been put off before by my failed attempts but I take some encouragement that I want to keep trying. I’ve started to answer “Why?” with “because I want to”.  I don’t need to…
