I’m not an artist but an occasional-when the credit card allows-collector; & found myself on redbubble after purchasing a work by Sarah Moore . Intriguing.

Other artists that i try to support regularly – either via redbubble or with original works – are Mayu & Samantha

Another way that i’ve found to keep my bank balance low is loaning money to third world entrepreneurs through kiva.org & more recently wokai.org . Nothing breaks the darkness of a seriously lousy day faster than knowing that you can help someone in Cambodia buy pigs

After a highly turbulent year & a bit, i’m now living with my wonderful Teresa. She is the joy of my life – but she can be a handful, too. I love her

My facebook page is here & In my spare time, i write strange, vaguely visionary poetry & fiction, some of which i’m posting here . I hope people like it
