I'm a fairly nice bloke. You'd probably like me if you met me.

Entr’acte

Welcome back to ‘Artist’s Corner’, the only bit of my blog where you can find the much-celebrated artwork of Little Proclaims, my two-year-old daughter. This is very much the final entry in the 2020 series, as all regular activities on my blog must cease next week in order for me to begin my usual festive…

A Thousand Words From Little Proclaims

Welcome back to ‘Artist’s Corner’, the bit of my blog that is currently devoted to the art-work of my two-year-old daughter.

I don’t know if that makes Halloween more or less worthwhile. We’ve basically been experiencing the apocalypse since the end…

The September Sessions – 7 of 9

We are, once again, at that time of the week when I post a picture produced by my daughter, with her washable felt tip pens, and make the bold claim that it is art. This particular bit of my blog has been going on for months but the last few weeks have been given over…
