My name is Mal - but close / long term friends on dA also call me Mel.. you get to choose!!
I was born in London, UK and spent a lot of my professional career travelling much of the world. I now live in Portugal, where I have permanent residence which I obtained well before Brexit was even thought about...
My favourite medium is photography, although I do write from time to time. I have no problem with people wanting to use my work as a part or a basis for their own creation, but I like to be asked BEFORE you use my work - and then given a link to your completed piece so I can see what you have created. But, never post my work as your own - that's theft!!
Favourite cartoon character: Dogmatix - Asterix's little white dog
