I like creating. I think that’s why I like all this. The products are interesting and often beautiful in themselves but they’re also tools for making something new. Whether that’s a letter, a quickly scribbled note or a picture, pens, paper, pencils and ink are what you use to create something that wasn’t there before.

Apparently people like it if they know what you look like. I think that probably doesn’t apply where I’m concerned but here’s a picture anyway. View at your peril.


Funnily enough I’m pretty sure the seagull in the picture could well have been the one that seconds later deposited something unpleasant on my coat.

Everything I write about here was bought with my very own money except where I say otherwise. Please look here for details about the site’s ethics policy.
