My self-summary
I am whimsical and fancy-free, a regular feral child all grown up and not quite sure how i got here or where I am going.

I was once described as a "loose cannon" and a "maverick" during a job interview. They still offered me the job.

This will give you an insight into the person I pretend to be

What I’m doing with my life
Currently studying illustration at Brighton Uni. Mostly drawing and animation.

I have gut wrenching wanderlust but, shamefully, rarely live out the fantasy or even make steps to.

Trying to resist the urge to let my duvet consume me while the days pass me by and actually do something while my heart and hands are still willing. Making art my living and finishing the book i've been writing for 8 years would be a start.
I’m really good at
Art, reading people, knowing where north is without a compass, cooking, bullshitting, feeding pigeons and ducks, deviance, adapting

I'm also interested in science - particularly physics (astro and quantum). I'm pretty obsessed with atom bombs and the like. And also philosophy - however I don't by any means claim that I am any good at thinking about these things, but I get by.

Food - I consider myself pretty decent with a pan - my roast is renowned - all vegan of course :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lolita (I consider it very romantic, but then I think most people should get past the subject matter, read the actual words and agree), just kids (patti smith), lord of the flies, nausea, a clockwork orange, all sherlock holmes but particularly hound of the baskervilles, american psycho, pretty much all Palnuick - basically all the books one is SUPPOSED to read. Also massive shakespeare nerd and poetry too; dylan thomas, richard brautigan, plath, browning etc etc

All the movies - kubrick, lots of 70's classics like taxi driver, classic horror, all tarantino, old horror, high brown classics like ace ventura and jurassic park, all disney (if you want to tell me why walt disney is frozen and a nazi i will happily correct you on both errors) OH and TITANIC of course, I know every line.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The double slit theory. Atomic bombs. Nature's vengence. People, the past and fantasy
On a typical Friday night I am
attempting to pour myself into words and pictures but actually staring at 4 walls

or crying over other peoples dead dogs on the internet
You should message me if
You would like to see a magic trick. I only have one, and I will need 2 rubber bands...
