Updates: 3D Work
May 9th, 2017 by

I’ve been playing with 3D work for some time now – not creating my own models from scratch (yet!), but instead working with models and environments in Daz Studio. It’s coming along, and I’m having a lot of fun although I don’t get enough time to devote to it. The main reason why I started […]


City of Smoke and Bone
May 3rd, 2017 by

Yes, if you’re familiar with the gorgeous Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor you’ll understand that I’m referring to the city of Prague. A city that I’ll be going to in just over a month.

Horrible stuff! I’ve very slowly been getting back into the swing of things with […]


Please Somebody Do This, I Beg Of You
December 7th, 2016 by

Today on Facebook I saw a friend indicate interest in the Night Market in Nottingham. Immediately my mind was filled with extremely cool images and possibilities about a market similar to the Floating Market in Neverwhere, or the Goblin Market in Hellboy 2. How incredibly cool would that be? The Nottingham Night Market, while sounding […]
