Hey, thanks for dropping by. Welcome to my bio.

I'm basically your average lazy artist. I like video games, food, sleep and drawing. I'm currently working on my Pokemon Emerald Nuzlocke run, which constitutes about 70% of what I'm posting at the minute, but I also like to draw the odd comic or doodle on other things, be they video games, dumb puns, or just mildly amusing stuff going on in my life. I have been known to do drawing livestreams on occasion.

If you don't know what a Nuzlocke is and you're interested, you can find a brief description at nuzlocke.com/challenge.php

The Nuzlocking community is awesome and y'all should join in the fun.

I currently reside in the innocuous little hovel of a town known as Abingdon, hanging off the crusty rear-end of the much more well known city of Oxford.

As of now I am doing an art foundation course in a local college and ultimately intend to move on to study animation in university.

I try to read every single comment I receive, be it on my profile or on my submissions. If I don't reply, please don't take it personally, I really do appreciate the input. The fact is though that I cannot possibly reply individually to every single one without sounding extremely repetitive - there are only so many times I can say "Thanks" before I start sounding like a broken record.

That being said, please feel free to post your honest thoughts, critical or otherwise. So long as you're not explicitly rude, I don't mind. I have a pretty straightforward way of typing, but please don't let that put you off talking to me, I like to think I'm fairly easy to get along with. I will also endeavour to answer any specific questions or particularly interesting comments that I can. If you ask a question and I don't answer, please don't feel afraid to ask again; as I said before, I can be forgetful. By all means talk to me in a note if you'd prefer.

I'm generally up for commissions. There's a little more info' on that elsewhere on my profile. Go ahead and drop me a note if you're interested.

I try to always return llamas. Sharing is caring.
I don't generally do those tag journal things though, except for from close friends. That's not to say that you're forbidden to tag me, just please don't take offence if I don't repost it.

I'm totally aware that loooooads of my "art", particularly the older stuff, is horrible. Like, makes-you-throw-up-very-slightly-when-you-see-it horrible. But that's OK, improvement is part of any artist's journey, and you can't improve if you weren't terrible at some point. Something something Einstein quote.

But yeah, keeping up the old detritus preserves a sort of visual diary of my improving over the years, even if it does make the gallery look a little gross and cluttered towards the last page or two. It looks horrible and I'm sorry, but it's all for the grea'er good.

The grea'er good.

If you've read this far and seen some of my stuff and for some reason you somehow haven't already been driven away from boredom, congratulations, and fear not, it's nearly over.

I do have a Twitter, which ought to show up below. I don't Twitter. Like, at all. I think I have like two or three tweets max. Over like, three years. Like there's legitimately no reason to follow me on it at all. Still, I'm not gonna stop you.

I'm just sayin', you're going to be disappointed if you do.

Also literally the same applies to my Tumblr. Hell if I know how this damn site works, I just made an account to take the dumb username in case someone else stole it.

This is the end. I'll put you out of your misery now. Go away. Read a book. Find true love. Live your life as you see fit. The world is your shellfish. Find freedom in this canvas.

I'm thinking of doing a digital painting process stream some time around this weekend. What time would be best?

Stream's offline- thanks everyone who came!
Hey all.
I've been wanting to do a painting process stream for a little while now, and since I got a Mega Latios to draw for the GottaDrawEmAll thing, I figured that's as good a reason as any.

So yeah, I'm gonna be streaming tomorrow to try to give you guys an idea of my painting process. I'm not an expert, but if anyone has any questions or queries, you can fire them my way and we'll see if I can help.

Exact timing isn't certain yet- I'm pretty sure it'll be some time in the afternoon/evening though; I'll update the journal closer to the time once I figure it out. If I don't get it finished, or if there's enough demand, I may do a bit more on Saturday or Sunday.

There will most likely be a small Skype call, but aside from that who can say? I'm just letting you guys know in advance so anyone who wants to come and chill with us gets the chance.

Later all.
