I cannot sleep because I need a coat stand. Indirectly.
I can not find a coat stand I like and can afford. A normal person would just buy a fucking coat stand and not think about it.
So I spent an hour looking for a coat stand, rather than just purchasing the first one I found for a tenner on ebay.
I found nothing to make me happy. So I designed one. In my head.
Then I spent an hour working out where I could source the materials from.
Then I had a bit of a think about the fact I’m not very good with my hands.
Then finally I thought about how little spare time I have in which to build a fucking coat stand. This was upsetting because the one in my head is really nice and it would be a shame for it to not exist, and frankly I really want to build something. But by taking time out to learn how to and then build a coat stand I will be letting people down.
I should probably just buy a coat stand on ebay for a tenner.
The source of my insomnia is a coat stand. I am not normal.

I had to draw a bunch of retro patterns this week for a tech project. Here’s a couple of them lovingly arranged with some text. When time allows I’ll put together a pack of them for download.

For a while now I’ve been tracking and photographing the wild trolleys of the urban plains of Maidenhead. You can now view my journal in it’s full splendour online:

I’ve been learning how to code for mobile devices, (mostly for commercial purposes) as part of the process I realised I could write games for Alexander so I created one with all his favourite things (windmills, bees, bubbles, butterflies). I released it on the app store a week or so back. It’s for 2-3 year olds (although anyone might enjoy it).
It’s an interactive picture of a garden, with various things you can click to make them animate.

I found a little bit of spare time to do some illustration over Christmas, I was hoping to do some painting as well but didn’t find the time in the end. Here’s the bits I managed, all a combination of Illustrator/Photoshop.
Green Mandala. I’ve started drawing Mandalas as warm up exercises for digital illustration. I find it very calming although tend to end up just doing those rather than starting on what I originally intended.
Happy New Year xx

I did a second Vlog. I also attempted a third but kept getting interrupted. If next week is calmer I will try again.

Trying to find time to get some more illustration practice in. Here’s a tile design I knocked up last night.
