I am a recently graduated BA Fine art student, this blog is intended to detail the ideas and construction of my studio practice. My work is about exploring the notion of taboo, censorship and obscenity. I recently started using digital manipulation, but primarily work in painting and drawing. My work often uses transgressive themes which contain nudity.If you are under 18 or feel you may be offended by this, please leave the site now. Thank you.

Charlie Brown revealed.
Schultz explored lots of different philosophical ideas in his Peanuts strip. Even bringing in a psychoanalysis/lemonade stall for the characters to discuss their fears. In my version Brown is now an adult, he has given up on the 'football of life' and is finding therapy in beer and drugs.
Schulz wrote of laying awake at night and asking the universe 'why me ?' and he said a voice whispered back ' I dunno', your name just came up is all'.
