You never know what you can get until you ask

A few days ago, I got an email from a 15 year old girl named Gemma with the subject “A Slightly Daring Request”. Gemma is an aspiring illustrator and she asked if I had any old design work that I could send her. I don’t usually get emails that are quite so direct, so I…

A Look Back at 2012

Hello everyone and welcome to 2013! Unfortunately I’m still sick with a sore throat (it got better after Christmas but then New Years Eve happened and now it’s terrible again). So even though I can’t make a video yet about my new year’s resolutions, I wanted to gather up all the best stuff I made…

I’ve been a supporter of the Harry Potter Alliance for many years now, and when they called on me for help with their Equality FTW campaign, of course I said yes. To start off the campaign, the HPA had a fundraiser in which you could get certain rewards depending on how much you donated. Two…
