I’ve been wanting to do something to celebrate my favorite film of all time for a while now. Which if of course - Back To The Future! Here I decided to take some memorable and iconic items and props, and place them with some of my favorite quotes across the trilogy (well, actually just the first 2 movies) Not sure about the background colour, might change that If I ever print these for anything.
An Autumns walk
Wanted to try capture the colours and general feel of Autumn, while it’s still around!
Completed my online photography course! I enrolled on this in January as I wanted to continue some kind of education. Today I finished the course! Well, I finished the theory side of the course, but there’s lots of practical assignments that I haven’t tried yet, so lots more to get out of it yet!
For a Halloween picture this year I thought I would put a Halloween twist on an already scary house - Norman Bates’s! I love the movie, haven’t yet seen the new series, but the house is so iconic. Before I thought to use the Bates house, I’d decided I wanted to do a house on a hill scene and originally wanted to focus on the scale, where the house would have been a lot smaller to emphasize the size and steepness of the hill, but as I started it that kind of didn’t work out so much. I also wanted to add a couple of pumpkins and some clouds, and fix some little perspective issues but I ran out of time. But rather then focusing on the negative, I have to say I’m really happy with this considering I haven’t used illustrator for a while, or anything on the computer for that matter!
Hope everyone has a fun Halloween!

Sponsored Bungee Jump!
My sister Sarah and my future brother-in-law Rick are doing a 300ft bungee jump in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. I’m currently receiving treatment as a young adult unit that is funded by the TCT. They provide wigs, support, wards, nurses and much much more to teenagers and young people living with cancer, and their family’s. They do amazing work but can only continue to do it with help and funding from the public.
As a thank you to what a great support source they have been to me, Sarah and Rick hope to raise £1000 for the TCT. Please visit the page and if you can, any sponsor big or small is hugely appreciated. Above is a quick poster I did for Rick to put up in his work place, which has all the information on. Simply click to sponsor. Thanks

This blog is likely to be very quite over the next 6 - 12 months due to serious illness. If you’d like to keep up to date with me, I have set up the above blog so that during this period I can keep creative, stay busy and hopefully help a few people along the way.
