    _DSC9260

    A return to Obonjan. Following on where we left off we re-established our focus on the secluded Croatian island that provided so many good times and memories the year previous. Whereas year one witnessed the handy work of Camille Walala, Carl Cashman, Slinkachu, Xenz, and Darren Henderson – the first phase of year two would [...]

  6. A Fish Tale – An Animation Project

    11 Stormie Mills the simple goodbye lowres

    For ordinary folk going through their pile up of emails on any particular morning does little to inspire. However, in the art game there are always glimmers of magic and when you receive something from Stormie Mills you know it’s going to be good.

Before conversing with Jack over this project I was completely naive with regards to the institution, it’s volunteers, it’s [...]
