My self-summary
Drawing's the thing, and storytelling.

I some time ago departed the world of architecture in order to fullfil a few creative ambitions.

I do my best to be rational so give no credence to crystals, astrology, ghosts, gods etc.

I'm not fond of routine or repetition but I'm broadly a simple thing who enjoys theatre/musical theatre/opera, films, galleries, museums, long walks, live music and comedy and good restaurants.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently creating stuff (writing, illustration).

I've taken my drawing skills off to film production, have contributed design ideas & storyboards.
I’m really good at
Acoustic guitar, drawing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My curt nature around superstitious folk. I suppose I'm quite tall. And hairy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm listening to Jacques Brel but I love Scott Walker.
Also - Tom Waits, The Tiger Lillies, Neil Young, Ennio Morricone, Kate Bush, that type of thing. Jazz, Folk & Classical and something from a musical.

Film, I love many films, here's a list with no order - The Innocents, Deep Red, The Wicker Man, North By Northwest, The Spy Who Loved Me, Vertigo, My Fair Lady, Blade Runner, Studio Ghibli output, The Long Good Friday, Brazil, Get Carter, Performance, Blow Up, 2001 and too many more to list. Though I have favourites I'll watch anything of merit. And if you're Terry Gilliam in a wig I'll marry you.

I particularly enjoy horror and comedy which is why I'd say The League Of Gentlemen is probably my favourite televisual product.

Reading - very important to me but I've struggled recently to find the time, I think I'm half way through three right now. Some favourites - ghost stories, Dostoyevsky, Goethe, Zola.

Other television - I, so far, have never tired of watching Jon Pertwee as the Doctor and Roger Moore is the best actor in the world in The Persuaders. Gerry Anderson's optimistic, naive, industrial space age future (Captain Scarlet, UFO, Space1999) does it for me while I worship the Monty Python lot and a great deal of their solo projects.

I make a point of trying to discover lesser know and rare archive film and television. I find that British and European cinema suffers from massive neglect especially relative to the vast American film machine. Therefore many trips to the BFI.
Six things I could never do without
My 0.3 propelling pencil and the pad where I scribble.

Fresh coffee.

Leather boots.

and three bottles of red wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My hair.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll admit nothing, feel free to ask.
You should message me if
Do we appear to have anything in common? Are you tall, curvaceous, female? Do you smell nice? Require a massage?
The two of us
