This website was invented many years ago, when the author kept coming across interesting things in pockets whilst doing laundry. Like small, terrified reptiles. Blogging about raising children in the rainforest, moving them to the UK and watching them leave home one by one to have their own adventures has gradually been replaced by a return to grownup life for their mother, Nan Sheppard, who is an anthropologist, writer and public international law consultant.
I'm updating things. You know that local Magazine I've been working on? You can see some of the issues online now here. I've always been so bad at keeping a portfolio. I would much rather hang out with humans than computers, and though I always know where everything is, it's usually where no-one else will ever see it. I send artwork off without taking a photo, I file things onto external hard drives and put them safely in a drawer. So now, I'm searching and scanning and uploading and having FUN and getting a crick in my neck.
But the modern working world demands that I have my work visible on the internet. Sigh.
In Smelly Teenager news, Chas slammed a door and BROKE a glass pane. He is £138 poorer, and I feel for him, I really do.
