Journal

The funny farm inside my head

Hey there, just thought id do a journal entry on my latest series as i havent really mentioned what its about in the images. Basically im doing a series of portraits on how mental illness can sometimes allow people to see the world and themselves differently whether it be good or bad.

Book time!

heyy everybody, ive gotta do a book for my course! which is awesome. but im having trouble finguring out which ones go together, flow together, which ones r strongest etc. im thinking a theme of my mental illness series stuff but am not sure. any chance of your help?!? cheeeers guys! :-)

Plus he’d broke in before and knew the way in :-D so me and my bro, acting all stealth, ran past the CCTV and i push him up one of the walls only to find a car practically running past my shoes. I smiled politely as i lowered my brother and pretended that i was purely lifting him to see the lovely view of the decaying building…and then proceeded in lifting him up …
