About me

In 2009, I was involved in a car crash that nearly killed me. Round about the same time, I lost my job, my flat, a LOT of my books, my career as a massage therapist and a lot of other things. I also found out I was autistic, which explained a lot of things that had been going on in my life.

I developed PTSD. I developed some incredibly debilitating back pain. I had to get some minor spinal surgery.

Very little of this actually slowed me down for long.

I started experimenting with PhotoShop. I took pictures, edited them and uploaded them. I started creating short videos. I started performing naked, for hen parties. I got involved in performance art. I developed a concept for an art installation that I want to act on. I learned about silk screen printing.

I took a sexual fetish and built a whole creative concept around it. I started writing and found ways to present my story and my pictures together. I kept creating.

I started to become comfortable – or, at least, less UNcomfortable – with people calling me an artist. Sometimes, I even felt prepared to call myself an artist.

I still don’t know where I’m going with all this. It’s ten years on from that car accident and I’m still working it out as I go along.

About the stuff I do

I’ve been exploring male chastity for the past couple of years, and I’ve finally found myself an actual keyholder. I’m creatively dragging a quirky little sexual fetish out into the mainstream world. You can read about my progress here or view the pictures in this gallery

I’ve been running a small business for the past ten years. I ran life drawing classes for parties. Sadly, the concept has been diluted by imitators, so I think it’s just about to collapse, but it was at least fun while it lasted. You can learn about it here

Most recently, I’ve been learning how to screenprint. You can see those pictures in this gallery

I have a profile on the Noisy Rain website and I have been featured in two issues. Issue Eight and Issue Seventeen.

And if you’d like to buy an original print, you can get in touch with me directly. My email address is graham@funkygee.com

Train tension

I’m on the train, midway between Glasgow and Dundee. There’s a couple of guys having a bit of an argument near me. It’s not loud, but there seems to be genuine tension involved. I’m getting a little wary and I’m paying attention. At first I’m not clear on just how many are in the group, but there’s definitely two of them involved in this dispute. / https://farquhar1970.blogs…
