Dream big, live fast.Dear friends,
Today I had a spare afternoon and thought, "I have been neglecting DeviantART for such a long time, why not write a journal entry?" So here I am. I know not a lot of you probably read this or will comment or even see it, but at least it's here for those who do stumble across it and have time to read it. I just felt like writing.
To everyone who supports me along this winding photography path, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Even if I don't get to reply to everyone who messages, emails and comments, I still always and forever appreciate it more than you would ever know. You all fill me with such confidence and push me through the times when I think, "Why am I doing this?" Thank you, my beautiful army of dreamers.
When I was younger my parents told me that the two most important things in life were "happiness" and "health". And pursuing photography as a full time career and making it into my life has made me one of the happiest little people. I would spend my child

Hello friends!Dear friends,
I'm sorry for not writing in what feels like an age. To think the last entry I wrote was for the New Year makes me feel old, I can't believe how quickly time has flown! Bliss first 3 months of the year with lots of exciting things happening and unfolding. One baby step at a time.
I now officially have a blog: heartful dream Pretty please do leave me a comment over there. I find myself relying on happy little comments to spur me to continue creating blog posts, and I love hearing from old and new friends. [:
What have you all been getting up to since 2011 rolled in? I hope life has been treating you all really well and that you're all happy. Do tell me what you've all been busying yourself with, I'd love to hear what news you all have.
Thank you all for the love, support, comments and favourites. You are my inspiration and I honestly couldn't see myself taking photos without your encouragement. You are an army of dreamers
goodbye 2010.as it is the last day of 2010 tomorrow i have decided that a deviantart journal would be a good opportunity to reflect and write down my hopes and dreams for 2011.
2010 has been deliciously wild. i have had my camera around my neck every single day and it has been the best year in that respect. some days i was out of breath, drained of energy but doing something i was so passionate about kept me rolling on. there have been the low dips too, of course, but i truly think that the positive moments have outweighed the bad.
whether you support me on deviantart, flickr, facebook, twitter, in real life or anywhere else; i thank you now for making 2010 the best year yet. i hope altogether we can keep building an army of dreams and youth to eventually take over the world. thank you for all the support, love, comments, favourites, laughs and new friendships. you have all been stars to me, so thank you.
my highlights have been everything. celebrating 3 whole years with nathan, stargazing on the g
How are you all? I hope life is being good to you all. I'm just dropping by for a quick update. Lately a lot of people have been asking for more actions and curves. After a lot of umm'ing and ahh'ing I have finally decided to release some of my most precious colours for sale.
As a photographer your colours are as important as secrets to a magician. Releasing them is always a huge step into the secret world of how you work and I have spent years playing with colours through curves and actions so I feel they are like children to me.
I have put a few up for sale here: http://colourfulwhispers.tumblr.com/
Surprisingly I have already sold some copies, I had no idea they'd do so well and it has filled me with confidence that my colours are going to loving new homes where they will be enjoyed and used lots and lots.
So if you're interested too then please do drop me a line and let me know!
Until next time!
Our First (Working!) Video.Last night Facebook decided to work, so I put my faith in it yet again for it to bork up this morning. So I'm really sorry that you guys got stupid broken links, that's the last time I try to share anything through Facebook with you guys!
So I've been wanting to film a vintage style video for many, many months now. I finally got onto it the other day and Nathan and I ended up getting some really pretty footage. I spent my Saturday editing it and it is finally done! I may or may not apply for a DeviantART film account, but in the meantime, you can view our first ever film here:
And this is the new and lovely link to Youtube!
What do you guys think?! We'd love to hear your feedback. Sorry that the previous link messed up. ]:

Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga.

PE: How to Scan and Adjust ImagesTutorial Time: How to scan and adjust images on Photoshop!
Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!
Things you'll need:
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!

The TrundlerThe waste land behind the fire station is always silent. No birds sing there, and even the wild rabbits and feral cats avoid it. Weedy wildflowers nod their seasonal heads in the breeze. Lying fallow in the midst of housing developments, shopping malls, the new movie theater — the vacant lot stands out like a knife wound on a woman’s placid face, shocking, brazen, ugly.
It is always empty. Except for one thing: a ragged heap of old trash, all nasty black tar paper and vicious snarls of rusted wire, car parts and broken glass and other junkyard jetsam. The embodiment of injury waiting to happen, an invitation to a tetanus shot... the city never hauled it away. No one ever wants anywhere near it; it radiates an eerie sense of calculating watchfulness.
And at night, it wanders.
When darkness falls, and the last cars heading into the hives of tract housing stop illuminating the asphalt with moving-picture shadows, it… unfolds. Bitter, broken tangles, grotesquely mov
