Oh, hello there!

I'm someone who lives on a tiny island somewhere in the English Channel, writing, drawing, photographing, and learning to accept my underwhelming existence on a rock around some gas around a hole around everything around nothing in space.

I am wholly aware of my insignificance, but if you'd spare a moment, I might be able to make you interested in it.

So, what am I?

I tend to call myself a writer, because that's what I mainly do. It also sounds a bit less pretentious than the more accurate "creator". I've thought up various worlds, and at the moment I'm working on one imaginatively called "The Fifth Sector". It's a sci-fi setting with planets, ships, asteroids, a lack of orbital fighters, and some animal people. I've already got a few short stories set in it, but there's a lot more to do.

Speaking of animal people, that brings me onto something else I create: art. Or, rather, drawings, photographs, and some things in Blender. When it comes to sketching/painting, I'm still an early learner. Personally, I don't think they're all that great, but my mother says otherwise, so what do I know? The same can be said for Blender; I'm pretty certain a professional would want my head on a stick if they saw my war crimes.

In terms of photography, well, I'd hope I'm alright. I can frame a picture, I can sort of understand the settings on my camera, and I have a knack for taking landscape shots at sunset. Sometimes, I'll superimpose a render of something from Blender onto a photograph. I don't know what else to say here, so...

What does this mean for you?


Well, since I asked, I'd be very grateful for some help with funding my interests. Unless I publish something that really gets out there, pursuing my creative side will be somewhat problematic. I would love to just sit down and make things, but in the world as it is, I unfortunately can't simply do that.

So, if you're interested in helping me out, please consider pledging to me. Everything on this island - especially the houses (none are below £150,000) - is ludicrously expensive. While I honestly doubt I will ever have enough of you to fully support myself from here, every little helps. I'll be able to buy things such as art supplies, programs, and a slew of upgrades I really do need.

What will you get?

A lovely warm feeling knowing you're helping me out.

In all seriousness, you will have access to posts here. These include high-resolution images - be they drawings, photographs, or photographs with drawing over them - large-ish snippets from WIP stories, and perhaps a little ramble here and there.

Honestly, I'm still figuring things out here. But, in time, this place should be nice enough.


Thank you very much for getting this far!
