"Who am I to judge?"


Give it a go

"Don't be afraid to do something for the first time.
Amateurs built the Ark 
and pro's build the Titanic."

Thought that was alright,
Steven Tyler said his mother told him that.
He said that on Top Gear there.

Watching it with my dad desperately trying to 
finish my work before I go away tomorrow.
I'm going to Galway by the way.

My boss Tim tells me that all the time
"the first attempt is always the best" and it's true.
(But you have to think about it.)

Stop procrastinating love.

I take orders with this book in the restaurant. 

Blue Umbrella Interview

Saschka Unseld. Fascinating

He's like me, except less shit.
One day..


From the minds that brought you Gay Bar and High Voltage,
comes another lesson about the nature of human people.

It really old, it's even in the same album.
But I always liked it, I remember listening to it when I
started to think about art properly (or more).
About the same time I first watched
Rocky Horror Picture Show.

It's weird now looking back that the same things that at
first I outright detested, then made me agree and
in the end love it.

The first Jackie Chan

"I never wanted to be the next Bruce Lee. I just wanted to be the first Jackie Chan."

So universal... 
Hah. If anything came out about Jackie I'd die.
I'd literally lose all faith in people. 
He upholds ALL my values.

Good then, good now.

The Blue Umbrella

Go see Monster's University
and you will see this short animation.
Don't watch it online. See it at the pictures.

It will have you.


"Collaboration is the act of joining together to make possible that which cannot be accomplished alone.Whether you are collaborating in the workplace, in school or as part of a creative project, collaboration can both help and hurt a project, depending on how it's done..."

[It frightens me sometimes when I realise I don't understand basic things as well as I think I do.]

July 20 photos

Photos from the last week or so.

My friend Ross took this from his room in Vietnam while I was talking to him. He's there teaching kids to swim.

Clean up crew after the twelfth in Shaftesbury Sq. Belfast.

My mother, age 15 at Smithfield Park, in my hometown, 1983. Found this at my Grans today.

My boss made this (thon company name) in a toy shop in Amsterdam last week.

The 'Terracotta' soldiers come to Belfast city hall yesterday, ready for the wee ones to paint!

Ulster Wildlife Film

The Film we made for Ulster Wildlife.
If you have a spare 20 minutes to learn about Northern Ireland's sea life.

The animations I done are at 4:20, 8:02 and 11:08.
I did the map bits and the tracking labels on the animals 
(and charlie).

That presenter is Graham Little,
him and my maps of Northern Ireland are intrinsically linked.

This is playing at the Titanic Centre now in Belfast.

cruse video

One of the videos my 'colleague' Robbie made about
 the Cruse bereavement residential.

The password is cruse123

This is more for me than anything else,
it makes me happy.
