It’s A Beautiful Life. Acrylic paint on wooden board. This post is about my Senior Project for Richmond University. It’s from 3 years ago, but recently I’ve been doing a lot of wondering and debating over both medical things (the good ol’ NHS) and also aspects of sharing with social media. Looking at this, I […]
I’ve posted a new times about the rather negative (if not also amusing) experience I’ve had with the NHS in recent months. As much as the NHS drives me up the wall, I have to admit I wholeheartedly believe in the idea of a National Health System. Especially because yes, they may have let me […]
It’s been 9 months since that fateful running adventure where I fractured my foot, did extensive soft tissue damage, and basically ruined my life.

Civilians surged into Bethnal Green tube station to shelter from the potential bombs. At the time, the station was not finished […]
The V&A’s Theatre section has a great selection of vintage theatre posters. Here’s some of the best vintage type faces I saw: They also have a rhino that represents fascism, cause, you know, why not?
I’m currently working on a project all about the District line. Here’s a little chunk from what I covered today, while looking at my commute. For this project, it’s my intention to visit every station on every branch of the District line, and take a picture of its roundel. Today I covered Wimbledon- Embankment. The […]
