How to spot fake Twit­ter accounts and misin­form­a­tion

The main way to keep up to date with what’s happen­ing on the ground with the Black Lives Matter Protests is via social media (and Twit­ter in partic­u­lar).

It’s really confus­ing though, because there are a lot of people and organ­isa­tions acting in bad faith and delib­er­ately making commu­nic­a­tion and fact-check­ing diffi­cult, and using manip­u­la­tion strategies to drown out the real inform­a­tion about what’s happen­ing on the ground.

Fanzine Ynfytyn 27- Solitude Stand­ing digit­al version

In 2016 I left London to house sit in the small town where my grand­par­ents had lived. After a sequence of unfor­tu­nate events involving elec­tri­cians and train strikes I ended up spend­ing the whole summer pretty much alone in a town full of old people, where I knew no-one and there was very little to do, and I had very little in-person contact with other people. A situ­ation a lot of other people can relate to at the moment I think.

Roskilde Viking Ship Musem

It’s very unlikely I or anyone else will be trav­el­ling much this summer (I’ve not been more than a mile away from home for months now), so I thought I’d sort out and post some old travel photos. Here’s Roskilde from 2015. I posted photos of Copen­ha­gen and Malmö at the time (you can see them here and here), but I forgot to do these ones.

I want my MTV (late 90s edition)

I was a teen­ager in the dark ages when you had to have light­ning reflexes to tape songs you liked when they came on. I didn’t have cable or satel­lite at home, but I did a lot of babysit­ting at houses where they had the music chan­nels. So I used to to make mix tapes of music videos. Here’s some of the stuff I remem­ber taping.

It’s a fool who doesn’t see what I see watch­ing trees

Here’s a playl­ist. There’s a certain early 80s synth pop mood, even if all the songs aren’t actu­ally from that era. There’s some Russi­an stuff, there’s the Deftones cover­ing Duran Duran (yes, really). Have a good aesthet­ic­ally composed sulk on me.

Soph­ie Woodrow sketch­book page

I’ve really been in a creat­ive slump under lock­down. All that time, no motiv­a­tion. I forced myself to do some draw­ing today- just some simple sketches of some ceram­ic sculp­tures by Soph­ie Woodrow that I’d admired. I think it did me some good.

Mycenae­an Grave Goods

I was tidy­ing up and found some bits from art school ten years ago. Here’s some prelim­in­ary sketches I did for a project based on Mycenae­an arte­facts. Rather than draw direct, I drew vari­ous motifs on some acet­ate with mark­er, and then held it on the cyan­o­type paper with glass to expose the pictures. These prints were not the final project, I don’t know where that has gone. They were more prelim­in­ary explor­a­tion work.

A walk along an empty beach

Not many people are getting to the beach these days, but I live right next to it (in fact I can see the sea from my living room window). It’s strange to live in a tour­ist town when there are no tour­ists.

Bulgaria- toy camera vision

In the fuzzy zone between Christ­mas and New Year I scanned a lot of old negat­ives. I’ve recently star­ted going through them and edit­ing the photos. It’s not like travel is going to be much of an option this year, so might as well sort out all my old travel photos that I over­looked.

Tim and the Hidden People

Tim and the Hidden People is a series of children’s school read­ing books from the late 70s/​early 80s that a lot of schools had. They have a strange, bleak folk-horror atmo­sphere, and the illus­tra­tions in the first three collec­tions are a little uncanny valley. Tim is always walk­ing along lonely canal paths with strict instruc­tions to not look over his shoulder and tie the silver string around a partic­u­lar tree or else.

Schloss Belvedere, Vienna

I real­ised I still had a few photos from Febru­ary in Austria left unposted, so here they are. Strange to think that six weeks ago I was trav­el­ling around Cent­ral Europe for work, and now I don’t venture more than a mile or two from home.

A gener­al update

I haven’t posted much this month because I was ill- not ill enough to need medic­al atten­tion or be bedrid­den, but not ill enough to do anything much either. Was it the virus, or not? I have no idea because of course I wasn’t able to get tested, but the symp­toms fitted, and the people in the flat next to and below me were equally ill with the same symp­toms, and I live in one of the most affected parts of the UK. I also felt tired and grey for a long time after recov­er­ing- simil­ar to after having glandu­lar fever and shingles (not helped by doing some­thing pain­ful to my shoulder in the mean­time). So it seems likely.

Japan Zine- digit­al edition

A couple of years ago I won some plane tick­ets to Japan, and went inter-rail­ing around West­ern Japan with my friend Vicky. The whole trip was short notice and on a very low budget, but we had fun. When I came back I made a zine about the trip. The paper edition is still avail­able here, but for the fore­see­able future I can only send phys­ic­al copies to the UK. So I’ve made a digit­al edition for people to read.

The Shame Pile

My living room has a very handy built-in book­shelf (although the amount of differ­ent compart­ments meant it took a long time when I moved in to paint over the old nicot­ine-stained paint). The major­ity of my books live on the bigger book­shelves in my bedroom, but the living room houses the Shame Pile.

Ichi-go ichi-e

This was my April 2014 piece for Story­board , a writ­ing site with monthly prompts run by a friend. I couldn’t think of a story idea, so I wrote a kind of essay instead.The theme that month was “Ichi-go ichi-e”: a never again moment. I couldn’t think of a story, so I decided to talk a little about ways other writers have handled the theme. I suppose you could call this a casu­al essay. I’m afraid it won’t be closely argued or metic­u­lously foot­noted, and it is quite loosely put togeth­er, but maybe it will give people some good recom­mend­a­tions of things to read

Ink Master Copies

I had a whole folder full of artwork masters, so I decided to stick them into sketch­books this after­noon (these kraft paper folio-sized books are around £6 from Muji). I tend to draw the line artwork by hand with a non-photo blue pencil and posca mark­er, and correct mistakes/​add the colour digit­ally.

Ivan Bilib­in

I thought while stuck at home I’d do regu­lar posts show­ing things I like which other people may not have heard of. Ivan Bilib­in was a Russi­an artist most famous for his lavishly illus­trated books of fairy tales taking inspir­a­tion from Japan­ese wood prints, Russi­an icon paint­ing and Ye Olde Slavon­ic script.

Diana Wynne Jones zine- digit­al edition

A few years back I made a zine with articles about writer Diana Wynne Jones (prob­ably best known for writ­ing Howl’s Moving Castle), and an inter­view I conduc­ted with her before she sadly died. The paper edition is still avail­able here, but for the fore­see­able future I can only send phys­ic­al copies to the UK. So I’ve made a digit­al edition for people to read.


Amstetten is the most extremely aver­age place in Austria. It’s a largish commuter town in between Linz and Vienna. You have no reas­on to visit it. Its main claim to fame is that Josef Fritzl lived there. I was there to teach in one of the schools as a visit­ing teach­er.

A less than excit­ing walk around Salzburg

I was supposed to be back in Austria right now, running more school work­shops. Obvi­ously that’s not happen­ing now, due to the Coronavir­us lock­down. Here’s some photos from Salzburg a couple of weeks ago, where I flew en route to Amstetten.

Hibern­at­ing & clean­ing

I was supposed to be in Austria right now running school work­shops, but obvi­ously that’s not happen­ing. Like many other people right now I’m unem­ployed as my whole industry has stopped exist­ing overnight. Seeing as I’ll be spend­ing a lot of time at home in the fore­see­able future, today seemed like a good time to have a big cleanup of the living room.

What’s in the box?

Austria Post does an excel­lent fixed price box with­in Europe which is extremely handy when you’re trav­el­ling around for weeks on end with a 20kg luggage restric­tion and need­ing to dress nicely for work and no access to laun­dry.

Assor­ted Deutsch­lands­berg

Here’s some assor­ted photos from Deutsch­lands­berg. It’s a very ordin­ary small Austri­an town near Graz. Although it’s a pretty and nice place, it’s prob­ably not where you’d pick for a holi­day in Austria (although they do get hikers and people coming for the wine trail in the summer).

Arrival in Deutsch­lands­berg

My next work assign­ment was in Deutsch­lands­berg, a small town at the foot of the Koralm Alps, near the Slov­e­ni­an border. (Austria is a lot further south and east than people imagine). I was there three years ago (at a differ­ent school), when it was snow­ing heav­ily. This time I arrived to bril­liant sunshine, and went for a walk up in the vine­yard filled hills with Jemeala, one of the other teach­ers.


En route to my next work assign­ment in Deutsch­lands­berg near the Slov­e­ni­an border I stopped off in Graz overnight. I’ve been to Graz loads of times. It’s a really nice city, even if every­one does have a thick Arnie accent. 

Cross­ing the Alps playl­ist

To travel in between Vienna and Graz, until the never-ending tunnel under the moun­tains is finished later this decade, you have to take the train over the top of the Semmer­ing Pass, going up and down over the Alps. You get some spec­tac­u­lar views, and the train­line itself is a UNESCO site. It’s hard to take good photos out of the train window, so here’s my playl­ist for over the moun­tain.

Eszter­házy Castle- The Versailles of Hungary

Fertöd is also home to Eszter­hazy Castle, a baroque palace often called “The Versailles of Hungary”. The Eszter­hazy family were the ultra-rich landown­ers in west­ern Hungary and east­ern Austria, and have palaces and castles dotted all over the place. This wasn’t even their main palace. It’s now a museum with guided tours. The tour was all in Hungari­an, but luck­ily with an English crib sheet. 

Assor­ted Fertőd

Fertőd is the village in Hungary just across the border from Pamha­gen. It has a huge Baroque palace there (which we also visited) and there­fore more places to eat than Wall­ern (and the exchange rate is very favour­able). The train takes about five minutes, but only runs every four hours. In fact the train jour­ney was so quick a lot of the time the conduct­or couldn’t even be bothered to sell us a cross-border tick­et.

Wall­ern Carni­val- home of the Party Tract­or

A lot of small towns in Austria have a Mardi Gras carni­val, and they often organ­ise them to be on differ­ent days to not clash. This means that if I’m in Austria doing school work­shops in Febru­ary I often see multiple carni­vals. Wall­ern-im-Burgen­land is still the most surreal I’ve seen.

Pamha­gen and Wall­ern-im-Burgen­land- the Kansas of Austria

My next work assign­ment was in a small village called Pamha­gen on the Austria-Hungary border. The main hotel in the village was closed, so we were put up in a neigh­bour­ing village called Wall­ern-im-Burgen­land. Pamha­gen is only about 70 miles away from Vienna, but it’s a million miles in real­ity. Until 1989 it was pinched between the lake and the heav­ily milit­ar­ised Iron Curtain. The border is open again now, with no pass­port controls (thanks Schen­gen Agree­ment!) but the area still feels like the end of the line.

Győr Station Lives in the 50s

Győr station is really quite styl­ish in a 1950s way. I took most of these photos while I was wait­ing around bored for my delayed train back to Austria.

Draught excluders of Győr

There were a lot of decrep­it old wooden windows in Győr old town. Here’s some of the vari­ous designs of draught excluders I saw.

Győr, Hungary

After work­ing in Vienna for a week I headed off on the train to Győr in Hungary. It’s the region­al capit­al of NW Hungary, and exactly halfway between Vienna and Budapest. I’d never been there before, and it was an easy train jour­ney from both Vienna and the tiny village on the Austria-Hungary border where my next work assign­ment was.

Street Signs of Vienna

Vienna has strong rent controls for shops, mean­ing that many of them are in the same loca­tion for decades, lead­ing to lots of vintage shop signs around town (along with styl­ish new ones like the brew­ery one above). Here’s a selec­tion of differ­ent ones I spot­ted on this trip.

Architek­turzen­trum Wien

I also visited Vienna Archi­tec­ture Centre- I’d never been inside this small museum before, but the entry was thrown in free with the bundle tick­et I bought for the other exhib­i­tions.


About 15 minutes walk from the school I was work­ing at in Vienna, and next door to the Univer­sity of Life Sciences was Türkenschanz Park

Vienna Academy of Fine Art

On a rare day off in Vienna I went to the Open Studio day at the Vienna Academy of Fine Art. This is the top art school in Austria, and also the same insti­tu­tion that famously rejec­ted Hitler twice for his lack of creativ­ity. The studi­os are in this impress­ive build­ing, the Semper­de­pot, which was origin­ally built to store theatre scenery and props.

Das Geht Sich Gut Aus

I’ve been in Vienna and now a tiny village on the Austro-Hungari­an border for the last few weeks. Here’s what I’ve been listen­ing to.

Kunsthalle Wien – Nina Vobruba/​Malte Zander + Time is Thirsty

The Kunsthalle Wien holds tempor­ary exhib­i­tions- I caught the last day of this show. It defin­itely isn’t the best thing I’ve seen there- I’ve previ­ously been to block­buster Basqui­at, Haring and Švank­ma­jer shows there, but it was included in the Combi-tick­et I bought for the other museums, so I made sure to see it.

Post Club

Get a nice surprise in the post every month- sent out on the 22nd of each month. Zines, mini-prints, post­cards, stick­ers. It’s a surprise.

This Means Noth­ing To Me?

I’ve been back in Vienna since Saturday, but I was busy at the annu­al work confer­ence. Last year was the first in a decade that I didn’t spend any time in Vienna, and that was strange. Vienna is a very big and grand capit­al city for a small coun­try of six million sparsely spread moun­tain people, a remnant of the days when it was the capit­al of the whole Austro-Hungari­an empire, cover­ing Austria, Hungary, Czech Repub­lic, Slov­akia, Slov­e­nia, Croa­tia and parts of Romania and Poland.

Slov­ak Nation­al Gallery

The Slov­ak Nation­al Gallery was also open late- it was free that day too because they were chan­ging the exhib­i­tions and only two rooms were open. From the website it seems like there’s a lot of inter­est­ing stuff in the museum, and it’s a pity I didn’t get to see it, but I enjoyed the small section I did get to see.

Overnight in Brat­is­lava

I’m work­ing in Austria for the next few weeks. I’ve been visit­ing for the last ten years to run school work­shops. You spend a week in a local school running drama, creat­ive writ­ing, and some­times art or cook­ery classes as an English immer­sion programme. Every week you’re at a differ­ent school.

I normally take my DSLR, and sort out the photos after­wards, but I couldn’t find what I’d done with the char­ger. My phone has a very decent camera though, so I’m going to use that and post them as I go. I’ve become increas­ingly frus­trated with the way the FB and Instagram algorithms decide what people see and in what order. Everything’s jumbled up and got no context or order, and it makes seeing travel photos partic­u­larly frus­trat­ing. So they’re just going here, where they stay in chro­no­lo­gic­al order and in context.

Two 24 page 1/​4 sized perz­ines on purple paper about work­ing in Museums. Avail­able for £3.50 here in the shop. UK post­age free, inter­na­tion­al calcu­lated by weight.

2020 Calen­dar

I’ve made an A5 calen­dar of my illus­tra­tions – the calen­dar itself is £7, and the artwork is also avail­able as prints of vari­ous sizes. UK post­age is free, and inter­na­tion­al post­age is auto­mat­ic­ally calcu­lated by weight.

Photoshop Digit­al Colour tutori­al

Multiple people have asked me for a tutori­al of how I do colour in Photoshop. A lot of people think my prints are analogue screen-prints, but they’re actu­ally mostly digit­al. I draw the ink lines by hand, but all the colour and texture is created in Photoshop.

Versailles Xpro- Summer of 2005

I’ve recently scanned around 60 old rolls of film, which I’ll gradu­ally post. These are some photos of the palace of Versailles taken on some extremely expired slide film. At the time I worked in a photo lab, and ended up with a huge bag of all the expired film from the shop for about £20, and also got free devel­op­ment as a perk. Half-melted and degraded Kodak slide film + Olym­pus XA2 camera, cross-processed as C41.

2019 in Books

Every year I take part in the Good Reads chal­lenge. My target this year was 52 books. I completed it with one for luck- 53 books this year. As I read each book I took a photo for instagram and gave a brief opin­ion- I’ve copied and pasted them all here. I’ve separ­ated them into categor­ies, but left them in the order read with­in the categor­ies.

Caecili­us est in Horto

If you study Latin in the UK, there’s a very good chance you will use the Cambridge Latin books from the 1970s. Although they’re forty years old, they’re still in print (and also on the Apple Store), and have a special place in people’s hearts. 

Magic Stor­ies From Around the World (1986)

Here is anoth­er scan of a vintage book I have had since I was a child. This is a collec­tion of myths and legends from around the world. It was origin­ally Czech and trans­lated to English, and has a large selec­tion of cent­ral European stor­ies less known in the UK, along with stor­ies from places like the high Arctic and Poly­ne­sia. There are also lovely illus­tra­tions by three prom­in­ent Czech illus­trat­ors.

The Ghost Stor­ies of M.R. James

Around this time of year on the Solstice there are two things I like to do as a person­al tradi­tion- go for a walk to Botany Bay around sunset and read the ghost stor­ies of M.R. James. Includes full text of Whistle My Lad, and links to read the stor­ies and watch the 1970s films for free.

Trees and Snails

I’ve got some more of those 70s badges people liked so much (plus some mush­room and moth ones leftover)


Here’s some more old films I scanned- this time of Inns­bruck from two years ago. Stand­ard Ilford HP5 with a 70s Pentax SLR.

Special Zine Deal

A pack of seven zines and a post­card (cacti not included) avail­able here for £5 in the UK, and around €10 or $12 USD/$18 AUD. All prices include post­age.

Altern­at­ive London 1969/​70

I found this book in a char­ity shop. It’s a prac­tic­al guide to altern­at­ive living in London from 1969/​70 cover­ing a wide range of topics from rent laws, to sexu­al­ity, drugs and communes to join. This is the first edition, there were yearly updates through­out the 70s.

Read­ing Diana Xpro

I’ve been work­ing through scan­ning a moun­tain of old films. Here’s some from 2004. I was living in Read­ing and study­ing at the univer­sity there. I also hand­ily had a part-time job in a film lab, result­ing in free devel­op­ment. At the time I got a cd of the photos, but I have no idea what happened to it.

Extinc­tion Dome print

Here’s anoth­er print- price in the shop varies from £6-£24 depend­ing on size. You can order one here. Features a plesi­o­saur, a nautilus and a coel­acanth for your pleas­ure.

Le Haut Boulay /​ Fomapan 400 review

Some photos of a place called Le Haut Boulay in North­ern France near where my mum lives. I have never seen a soul in the hamlet. There’s a hand­ful of houses and the road­side shrine, and that’s it.

It was really a test roll for the film. Fomapan 400- a very cheap black and white film from the Czech Repub­lic.

Lunatrak­t­ors at Halloween

I took some photos of my “broken folk” musi­cian friends the Lunatrak­t­ors doing a Halloween perform­ance. The setting was an art install­a­tion of a crypt of obsol­ete tech­no­logy in a tunnel on the seafront by  Sadie Hennessy. The metal­work head­pieces were created by local jeweller and metal­work­er Billie M Vigne. 

Nervy Betters poster

I designed this poster for my friend Henry, based on Ware land­mark Scott’s Grotto, but forgot to post it here. It’s tomor­row if you are in the area.

το υπνοδωμάτιο μου

I moved to this flat in Janu­ary but only recently sorted out the bedroom how I wanted it. Due to the place­ment of the window, built in ward­robe and door, there’s really only one layout that works.

2012 sketch­book

While clear­ing up, I found an old sketch­book from 2012. Here’s some photos of some pages.

My Office

I have spent the past few days rearran­ging and clean­ing my office. The old layout just didn’t work. I spend a lot of time here work­ing, so it was time to change things round.

Bognor Char­ity Shop Finds

Here’s the best stuff I got for very cheap in the excel­lent char­ity shops in Bognor Regis (the only enter­tain­ment there). The reas­ons for so many good finds is fairly grim- lots of old people in the area who die and have house clear­ances of all the 60s and 70s stuff they were hanging on to. Everything cost less than £5.

Robert Smith’s Cabbages

A couple of years ago I went down to Aldwick, near Bognor Regis for the summer to house-sit a relative’s house. I ended up being stran­ded there due to a lengthy train strike. Robert Smith of the Cure is prob­ably the only famous local resid­ent. The owner of one of the local shops told me where he lived, and I went along to see it once out of curi­os­ity. The house was dull and expens­ive look­ing, but the beach it stands next to was much more Robert Smith like, with windswept shingle like Dunge­ness and rare sea cabbages. I never bothered to look at Robert Smith’s house again, but I made many trips to the beach because I liked it so much. I was usually the only person there.

Fanzine Ynfytyn 27

I’ve done a new zine about that time in 2006 I acci­dent­ally spent a whole summer alone in Bognor Regis. For £2.50 you get both the zine and the mini zine I made at the time for the 24 hour zine chal­lenge. Find them here.

Mush­room King prints

I now have prints of this Mush­room King artwork up for sale. A5 is £6, A4 £12 and A3 £24. Find them in the shop.

60s slides: Costi­era Amalf­itana

Here’s some more 60s tour­ism slides from my grand­par­ents’ house (you can see others here). This time from the Amalfi Coast in south­ern Italy, now a UNESCO site. Again I have posted all 36 images. It looked pretty much the same when I was there about 10 years ago, minus the annoy­ing coach party of loud Texans who kept appear­ing every­where you looked and complain­ing there was no Taco Bell and you had to walk places. Further along the coast in Sorrento I bought a very fancy waffle-knit towel that still serves me well for trav­el­ling. The shop assist­ant seemed very confused that I wasn’t buying a whole match­ing set of them like the major­ity of their custom­ers. Afraid I could only afford one small one. 

Plan­et­ary Urban­isa­tion

Yester­day I went to a talk at Well Projects from anthropologist/​sound artist Dimitri­os Borm­pouda­kis from the Univer­sity of Kent as part of A Cut From Sharp Grass, “a visu­al art exhib­i­tion & series of public events developed in response to the increas­ingly urban­ised, networked & tech­no­lo­gic­ally integ­rated land­scape of Kent”. Here’s my sketch­book notes from the talk.

60s slides of Hercu­laneum

When clear­ing out my grand­par­ents’ house a couple of years ago I found seven pack­ets of these 60s tour­ist slides of vari­ous places around the Medi­ter­ranean. I’ve been scan­ning and restor­ing them. First up, these from Hercu­laneum.

Hercu­laneum is a smal­ler coastal town near Pompeii that was also destroyed by the volcano. It’s not as well known, but there are some magni­fi­cent villas there in a simil­ar but smal­ler archae­olo­gic­al park to the one you can visit at Pompeii.

Cake Explod­ing

I had a dream that Cake Explod­ing was a popu­lar hobby, with world cham­pi­on­ships and dedic­ated YouTube chan­nels. Here’s the comic version. Avail­able from the shop for £1.75

Cadbury’s Novelty Cook­book

I got this late 70s/​early 80s book from a char­ity shop a while ago. A lot of famil­ies in the UK had it when I was a kid I think. I got it out because I prom­ised to make my friend a really ludicrous birth­day cake from inside. The recipes are fine, vari­ous flavoured sponge cakes with butter­cream icing (albeit with gratu­it­ous Cadbury’s product place­ment in every recipe). It’s the choice of cake themes in the book that’s a bit odd …

Cambridge Botan­ic­al Gardens

I was sort­ing out old folders on the hard drive and have found a lot of photos from the past couple of years that I never got round to sort­ing out. Here are some from the Botan­ic­al Gardens in Cambridge two years ago. I was work­ing teach­ing on a summer course there, which was stress­ful mainly because they hadn’t actu­ally hired enough staff to cover all the hours, so we were doing some extreme over­time. So a stroll around the gardens while the students completed their activ­it­ies was a nice respite.

Feral Prac­tice

Earli­er this week I went to a free art work­shop hosted by Open School East. Open School East is a combin­a­tion art course/​residency and students are required to organ­ise public art work­shops. This time envir­on­ment­al artist Fiona MacDon­ald aka Feral Prac­tice was the visit­ing artist. There was a talk about ants and fungi and the aim of “meet­ing  with animal/​plant/​place through the processes and reflex­iv­ity of art”, and then we went out into a local park with a wood­land area to do some clas­sic sensory/​location art activ­it­ies. Here are my sketch­book pages and some snaps from the day.

Diana Wynne Jones confer­ence notes

A couple of weeks ago I went to an academ­ic confer­ence in Bris­tol focused on the works of Diana Wynne Jones. She is prob­ably best known for writ­ing the book that the Studio Ghib­li film Howl’s Moving Castle was based on, but she has around thirty other books aimed at a vari­ety of ages. Even the ones aimed at chil­dren have a surpris­ing amount of psycho­lo­gic­al and liter­ary depth, and a will­ing­ness to explore very dark issues not usually found in books for that age group, giving her work a huge appeal to adults and academ­ics.


Last week I went down to Pegwell Bay in between Rams­gate and Sand­wich to take some press shots for my friends Carli and Clair- aka the Lunatrak­t­ors. They describe their work as “broken folk” and combine folk, ambi­ent vocal over­tone work and choreo­graphy into it (Carli is also a choreo­graph­er and clown by profes­sion).

Infrared print

I liked one of the images I got from the Lomo­chrome film so much I decided to offer it as a print in the shop.

Lomo­chrome Purple

Shortly before I left London a couple of years ago I got a roll of the Lomo­chrome Purple film, a new formula designed to mimic the surreal colour infrared film you used to be able to buy.

I found the fragrance separ­ate from the flower

Today’s song is Black Cat, by Broad­cast, from Tender Buttons, one of my all-time favour­ite albums (I was torn between choos­ing this or I Found the F). I really wish I had seen Broad­cast more times than I did. There seemed no hurry.
