Everything connects to everything…

Much has happened since I last blogged, but little of note has been created. I’ve always tended to flit a bit, but I seem to be flitting a lot more than before. The problem isn't lack of ideas, I get lots. I’m short on attention span. Lately I can barely scribble ...

Ice Cream Artworks

I didn't realise... I've been busy making artwork over the past six months, I haven't had the ability to write anything.
