I have kept journals for 9 years and so its surprising that I should only discover blogging as a new format of journal writing. It's about time I embrace it and see if its as fun.

When I was about 15 we had a pet rabbit called Noodle, I'm guessing the name was ironic since she was a pretty fat rabbit! Watching her behavior over the years she developed some personaility, she was very much like a rabbit version of Garfield. So when she died I decided to start a few one picture frame cartoons.

Conversation without words

One of our projects in University was to come up with a conversation without using any words. It was a 2 week deadline and for about a week I was pulling chunks of my own hair out. I just couldn't seem to come up with an idea that inspired me so I sat around twiddling my thumbs hoping it would just hit me. Following week I had this brainwave and it all became clear, I liked this idea that the conversation is actually between a mobile and a standard telephone, cutting out the middle man. I used stencilled imagery and symbols to create a simple conversation of catching up on the latest news.


When I was 16 I got heavily addicted to a web based browser game called Larkinor, I played it for about 2 years before I moved onto better games. It wasn't a very widely known game, in fact I would say there were only 100 regular players at that time. I joined a chat room and met a lot of people, most of whom were from America, they were all very nice and it made my gaming experience very enjoyable. This image I drew using pen and ink was to commemorate all the friends I'd made during my time there. All of the quirky names on the outside of the image were player names so that when I posted this on the forum they could see where they were.

This second image was drawn specifically for a friend I'd made in the game called Monty (game name). He had lost his Dad that week so I decided in memory I would draw an image and do a similar thing with everybody's names. The game was very much a community of very nice people and it was nice to show him how much we all meant to each other. It was a last minute decision to actually colour this one in, it certainly made it more vivid.
This drawing was the last one I ever did for Larkinor, by this time I was getting bored of the game and a lot of my old friends were leaving. This drawing was for somebody we all called Cinder who within the game was on the top list for being the best robber, so I focused on the robbing aspect of the game. It was a nice way to say goodbye.
