[reminds me of home]

Not sure where I found this or exactly how long it’s been saved on my computer.

But seeing it reminds me of home.

The fact that besides Bangor at the moment home is Kent and by weak extension London and that this drawing is obviously not of London makes the fact it reminds me quite strange. But there you go.

Hope you’re all good.

[i think it’s quite accurate to be honest]

[i think i know why i dislike celebrities]

Today at work, out of nowhere
I random remembered a thing
that me and my mum used to
do when I was a kid, which
sometimes [only rarely and
sometimes to extradite myself
from social situations] I still
do.

On a Saturday we would go
through the newspaper and
armed only with a biro we would
go through defacing random
celebrities. For no reason but
to see what we would come up
with.

I know this is random but it
could explain my distaste for
anything resembling the world
of celebrity. So for a laugh, when
I got home I grabbed a newspaper
and had some fun.

around my bedroom]

[the last one weirds me out tbh]

[sos] [but i’m back now, so, yay]

Not really been writing much
recently, not really sure what
to write to be honest.

So I focused on my Flickr. If you
want to see anymore of my
photography and illustrations
[basically wayyy more than you’d
see on here] follow the links below.

[xkcd comic] [for the geek in me] =]

Upon reading this I went on Wikipedia.org
and researched anything on this I didn’t
already know about, took ages but I feel
better for it.

Because that is what I use the internet for
these days [besides blogging and MSN of
course] self research. Say for instance I’m
watching a DVD or a television show and
a character says something I don’t know
or understand the reference for, I get the
laptop and look it up.

Thus the great power of the internet,
oh and I am aware that going from an
informative and amusing comic to
a validation of the internet for self
research is quite a segway, but if
you read this blog, it’s what you should
expect.

[Just wait till I write the blog I’ve been
planning that completely U-Turn’s on
what I just said]

[any views you know the drill, comment]

[attempted.illustration]

I created this illustration using an original image
I took whilst with a friend in London, UK

I took the image and placed it in Adobe Photoshop
and placed a layer on top and drew the image again
with the paintbrush tool, it took quite some time to
create this image, but I’m most likely going to create
more.

I’m actually quite proud of this and intend to do more
using original photos that I have taken.

Wish me luck.
