I often imagine what the new year has in store for me…next year I imagine my career will come into its own and I will be exactly where I imagine my 27-year-old self to be. 2011 will be my year…I will make it happen.
Oh. and of course I will get more ink. That goes without saying.
Imagine. What are your new year’s resolutions?
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…
Here are a few festive pics to wish all my readers a very happy Christmas…love and merriment to all.

The enchanted tales and illustrations of Beatrix Potter will forever have a place in my heart, they were much loved in my childhood.
And once upon a time there were some Potter fans who decided they would take their dedication one step further…
An adult take on a childhood memory…

Bradley’s escapism from a troubled Belfast came from reading Hergé’s Adventures of Tin Tin. His art is influenced by the black lines of the vivid illustrations in these tales. He often imagined travels and the exotic world beyond the realities of Belfast. Bradley discovered that drawing calmed his nerves and he could lose himself in the complexities of observing people and then recreating them in his own way on paper.
Terry’s interests lie in both art and fashion. Ever an eye for the aesthetic Terry opened his own clothes shop in the trendy university area of the city. The shop was named Retro and soon became a leader in fashion for the clothes conscious of Belfast City.
Terry is a multi-talented man and his collaborative work means that his work goes beyond the painted canvas. Take a look at his projects here.
Here is a selection of his beautiful work.
