This is a slight tangent from my usual blog updates but I just wanted to share a recent experience I had with family. Sadly, my father’s aunt died a couple of weeks ago. We all flew from NYC to Kansas to attend her funeral. It’s always strange going back to Kansas and seeing the extended family. We come from a very small town where everyone knows each other. Whenever I go back for funerals, weddings or birthday parties I always head out after the party has finished for a few beers with my cousins. Inevitably, some local hillbilly always hits on me and they always know exactly who I am, who my family are, where I’m living now etc etc. And I’ve never met these people before. My family moved to New York when I was just 3 years old, so I didn’t grow up out in the middle of nowhere like the rest of my family. Read more

Cintiq Art

Hi there!  Welcome back to my blog! So a couple of articles ago I told you about my new shepherds hut. Well I can tell you now that it really has been worth all of the investment and hard work. I absolutely love spending time in it away from the rest of the world. It is a great combination of luxury and simplicity sat in the middle of an idyllic countryside. It really is a great escape and a place that gives me the freedom to think, relax and get creative. I told you in my last post how much I love art and travel and I have really been able to embrace this concept since renovating my shepherds hut. I decided that spending time away in my shepherds hut that I would try and embrace my creative side and use the time to explore some new hobbies.  Although I am not a massive consumer of technology and I do like to keep things simple there are certain technologies that I find really exciting and innovative. I think technology can really have its place in developing and enhancing the way we view and experience the world and digital art is perhaps at the forefront. Read more

My New Shepherds Hut

18/03/2016 Main

Hey Folks! Welcome back to my blog! How are you all? I have had a pretty busy but exciting few weeks. Why you ask? Well, I recently brought some land in the country. I love traveling but I thought it would be cool to have somewhere that I can turn into my very own home from home. So financially speaking I couldn’t afford to build a massive structure on the land and I actually quite liked the thought of having something that was relatively small and compact but with enough scope to put my own stamp on it. So, taking all of this into consideration what were my buying options? I thought about buying a storage container and pimping it out but I then considered that perhaps that was a little too out there and would look a tad silly within its countryside setting. I then considered buying an old, retro caravan and updating it but that just wasn’t quite exciting enough.  So after a lot of consideration and a fair bit of daydreaming I decided to buy a Shepherds Hut! Surely you know what I am talking about right... Read more

Mini Fridge for Holiday

26/01/2016 Main

Hey everyone and welcome again to my blog about art and travel. Going to keep on the travel theme this time and go the more practical route. Some friends and I are going travelling around the west coast for a couple of months and a friend of mine has a lovely campervan/motorhome for us. The only problem is that his fridge has broken inside, and looks like it will be quite expensive to repair, so I told him I would go on the lookout for a cheap new/used one, that shouldn’t prove to be too expensive and not add too much to our budget, and in reality, if we get a real cheap one then it’s only got to last us the journey, so something within this criteria shouldn’t be too hard to find.
