If anyone out there has a spare £200 (I can contribute the £2.49) and feels like treating me then here’s the link….. Zombie Peepshow Etsy Shop. Seeing these inspired … Continue reading Those Unicorn Shoes….
Waaaah, my first sketchnote diary! So, I don’t think I’m doing sketchnoting”properly” (but when do I ever do anything the way I should?!).

So this weekend I went on a little Steampunk adventure with my friend Kate and her lovely family. I love Steampunk, but Norfolk doesn’t have a very big scene at the moment so I’ve only ever been to one event. I had a great time making my costume for that one, so I jumped at the opportunity when Kate asked if I wanted to head … Continue reading BresSteam! – Steampunk Fair
