Vintage Advert - The Hard Disk You've Been Waiting For



Not sure about the year on this advert but a 10MB hard disk for $3398 *jaw drops*. My first computer was a Macintosh LC II or "pizza box" as they were otherwise known, it had a 30MB hard disc and 4-10MB of RAM, I used to have to wait forever when making graphics but it was a great computer to have at the time.

Childhood Fears....Moths - Illustration




I can't remember when it came about as I always seem to have had a kind of fear of moths. I'm still not sure if they just annoy me or I am fearful of them though. Moths always seem to want to fly around my head and they are just ugly butterflies who tap at your bathroom window when you switch the light on at night. A friend of mine used to be scared of birds, she would crouch down behind me and hold onto my waist if we ever had to walk near a town square where all the birds would usually hang out. If any of the birds flapped their wings, which they would, she would run off screaming down an alley until she felt safe to stop and turn around. I would find this highly amusing and the people in town would wonder what the bloody hell was going on.

Self Shadow - Photography

Self Shadow

At the moment I love shadows, especially that of the human form. I wanted to create a selfie photograph of myself using my own shadow and a cut out so as to not show detail.
