- Sofia Coppola on Lost in Translation (2003)
Yesterday I went on a wander around Southsea, Portsmouth. I covered 10 miles by the end of the day, but found places I never knew existed thanks to my awesome guide, Paul from Strong Island. It was a day made for instant film. Later we held a pop-up exhibition..it’s been a busy few weeks.
Finally got my Polaroid 210 Land camera working again. Grabbed some old film I keep in the fridge and these are my first results. :) I now have an obsession for instant film again and three working Polaroid cameras…happy times indeed.
Loving this already…contender for album of the year. Not as ‘tricky’ to listen to as certain reviews have suggested.
Mark graduated from the University of Huddersfield in 2006. Since graduating he has had shows across the United Kingdom, the United States and Europe.
Both the canvas he uses and the faces he draws offer a mysterious story. They carry the scars of travel, a life lived.
He trys to catch a certain beauty that is a step away from the image of beauty fed to society that you see today.

just beautiful :)
These are the monotypes I’ve been working on this morning…I’ve printed the heart boxes and just need to add some other bits and bobs. These little lovelies will also be available at the exhibition. Now gonna grab my bike and head out to see the sea :) #skullduggery
Today I have been printing these drypoint etchings of a Stag Beetle (Lucanus Cervus) for my exhibition that starts next week. I only put the Latin because it makes me feel like I’m in a Wes Anderson film. Here’s one of the little guys that I found in my garden :)
Sketchbook doodle from a beautiful photograph. The usual stuff..ink, tea, salt, bleach..it’s not finished yet, needs more layering and detail..I’ve obliterated the words I wrote on there, but i like how it dissolves into the page. I’ve ‘borrowed’ the image from my friend ‘mothlight’ :)
