I create stylised vector portraits and landscapes, and I can use most anything as a resource to do so. I have a gallery on deviantART where you can see other examples of my vector artwork, and the various styles I’ve used throughout the years. 

(see full post about commissions here or check out my vector gallery)

If you would like a portrait, landscape, animal or anything else produced in vector, then inbox me or email me at to negotiate your request (image, resolution, format - digital, printed, canvas etc.) and price!
I am highly flexible and will be more than happy to accommodate to your personal wishes.

ESA Withdrawn while unfit for work.

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 3, 2015, 1:32 PM

ESA Withdrawn while unfit for work. (gofundme)

I'm a mentally ill trans woman who has been declared fit for work by the Department for Work and Pensions. I am not fit for work, due to an anxiety disorder with which I have been struggling since early 2012.

Due to frequent panic attacks, agoraphobia and sleeping problems I am on strong medication which only serves to dampen the severity of my anxiety; day to day I live in constant discomfort and fear of spending time out of doors, and yet despite legitimate medical evidence provided by my doctor - a specialist in my particular form of anxiety - the DWP have decided to cease my receipt of Employment Support Allowance, which I used to receive for my disorder.

While I appeal for a reconsideration, I will have no income whatsoever to cover regular household expenses, my phone bill, food and rent etc.

According to the information I've managed to obtain from sources online such as the Citizen's Advice bureau it can take at least two weeks for any reassessment to be made and due to a current high number of cases similar to mine, it may take significantly longer.

In the event that my appeal is denied, I'll have to take the case to independent tribunal and potentially further to an upper tribunal.

This, of course, means I will be receiving no income for potentially several months and I am already bottomed out in my overdraft; I have literally no money to support myself at this time.

For the time being I'd like to at least get out of my overdraft, so I've set my goal at £1000 - which is my agreed upon limit with my bank.

Anything exceeding this goal would be amazingly appreciated, and if there's anything I can do for you in return, such as a piece of artwork or something like that, I'd be happy to accept commissions and negotiate a price with you for that.

It's hard, however, due to my disorder resulting in a cycle of stress and demotivation that precludes me from taking regular commissions. 

Here are some examples of my recent artwork so you can see what you’d be getting if you wanted something done (though I’m not just limited to portraits):
(full size here )

I'd like to do what I can to earn my own way on a regular basis, but I can't at this time.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank, from the bottom of my heart, those who have already begun to support me by donating via paypal and commissioning me.

Those who wish to contact me regarding commission work (or even just advice and support!) please feel free to go ahead and message me :)

Green stuff!!

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 8, 2015, 11:24 AM

Ok so I recently joined the Scarborough & Whitby chapter of the Yorkshire/Humber part of the UK Green Party and I am officially part of the GREEN SURGE that has been sweeping the nation over the last few weeks.

This is all so exciting!!

I'm part of the fundraising team (which consists of myself and one other nice lady named Gaby). I have lots of plans that involve crowdfunding and video production, so I'll post more about that later when things aren't so in flux. We're in a stage of bouncing ideas off one another right now.

At any rate, the upcoming election is going to be pivotal for the Green Party - whether we win or not - and I URGE you who live in the UK to register to vote if you haven't (and vote Green, of course ;D).

You can register to vote [here] and should do so as soon as possible, because there is a limited window in which you can register, and the election is in May.

If you don't vote, for whatever reason, [here] is a video rxplaining what a wasted vote actually is by my local parliamentary candidate (and new friend!) David Malone, who is a super swell guy and is worth listening to.

If people stopped tactical voting, then the Green party would absolutely storm the election, as shown by this constituency map taken from

Vote for Policies gives you a multiple choice survey that gives you the option to pick individual policies you agree with, then calculates which party you are most suited for, which is for whom you should probably vote.

Give it a go, see where you end up and maybe you'll be joining your local Greens for drinks before you know it. I know I did!

On a seperate subject, thank you to those few who donated/loaned me some money to get me out of the immediate trouble with my bank. While I'm still in pretty hot water with regard to that, you guys have relieved my major stresses and hopefully I'll be able to recover soon.

For those that are interested, or missed what I'm referring to, check out my previous journal entry and it should clear some things up.

Take care, everyone.

Chains (also help omfg)

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 18, 2015, 5:24 PM

Greetings, folks.

I've been really inactive for a few years; just came back most days to check messages, clear out notifications and such.
I'd like to get back into updating my dA but I've got a pretty serious anxiety condition which has kept me mostly housebound and demotivated for a long time.
I was hoping that once I'd graduated university, I would feel less stressed and not have to worry about deadlines and producing artwork for academic purposes, but it has really drained my artistic drive for a long time now, and I'm only just starting to recover from that.

As a few of my close friends know, I've been planning a series of web-based stories called Chains ever since the inception of the first volume "Symphonum" back in 2009. The bulk of that story is planned out, but it still needs fleshing and better character development for the secondary and tertiary characters. I've been thinking a lot about the later volumes in the overall series, too, which has been taking up a lot of time that I should be using to create assets and write actual content for Symphonum.

This isn't a "look out, here I come!" kind of update, it's more just so that I can get my dA profile in a more "ok, I'm ready to pick this up at any point" state, without having to go through and do all the journal CSS and profile widgets and such when I want to focus on actually presenting the work I have planned.

At any rate, here's some of the stuff I've been working on for Chains. These are two unfinished models I'm working on for two of the stories within the Chains universe:

William Horsleigh; Peremaya.

Ripley; Revenant Rooster

Ok, so here's the bad bit that I feel terrible posting about at all:
Aside from the artistic/academic/anxiety based struggles I've been going through, I recently got some bad news from the local town council who not only denied my application for housing benefits because I have been unable to demonstrate that I have been paying rent at all while living in this property. The really annoying part is that the reason I haven't been able to pay rent is because they hadn't given me anything with which to pay rent, and given that I am literally agoraphobic and find it VERY difficult to leave the house regularly, I am also unable to work a steady job. If I could do some arty stuff online, that'd be great, but my inspiration and drive has been sapped by the academic side of things and I'm still in a recovery period from that. To make matters worse, the council noticed that they overpaid me some of the benefits they'd given me before I moved in here and so they're reducing my disability benefits to account for that. If anybody can support me with that side of things I'd greatly appreciate it, but I'm afraid I can't take commissions right now and I feel awful asking for charity.

Update: I am so overdrawn now that the bank are charging me £5 a day for every day I'm overdrawn, and I need to find £100 from somewhere to get out from being overdrawn and my benefits payments will not be in for another 12 days so that's another £60 just GONE unless someone helps me with this, uuuggghhhhhh.....

p.s. it took me days to get the css working properly but now I have an actual paypal button on my footer so you can easily find my donation page if you're willing to help a scared lil dryad out

Pokemon Black: Spoiler Warning!

Tue Dec 21, 2010, 5:10 AM
So I am NOT FUCKING HAPPY about the end of Pokémon Black.
I spent over 100 hours raising my team of bros in preparation for the all-important first-hall-of-fame clear photo.

My final team consisted of:

Ulgamoth (the head of the party) hadn't evolved yet so I was levelling her up the final two levels in the elite four.
I had other team members, Bron included () sacrificing themselves so that all the exp could go to Ceren () to make sure she evolved in time for the elite four photo.
That's how bro my team is; they take hits for each other in the interest of badassery in the final photo.

Then suddenly, when I go to face the champion: N bursts in, destroying the elite four building with what I can only describe as rock hard tentacle rape (I shit you not), makes a dumbass speech and has me follow him into his house.
Inside his house a bunch of ghost people tell me which way I'm meant to go (implying I'd be unable to find it without their help in one of the most linear locations in the game) then finally I meet Reshiram while N tells me to rape it.
Instead, I knocked it out.

But it was still there. Apparently it respawns until you catch it, saying "Reshiram wants you to catch it" or some shit.
I figured I may as well catch it so I did, then it asked if I wanted to place Reshiram in my party.
I said no.
It asked again and I declined once more but it said "Which pokémon would you like to replace?"

I was like fuck no, I'm not giving up one of my bros for a ho I've just met; bros before hos and all that.
There was no way around it, however, and so I had to replace Bron because she was the least useful against N's final team.
My beautiful Zaburaika got booted from my team in favour of some bimbo I'd just met five minutes ago and then I fought N and Geechisu and because N had beaten the champion I assume that made me become the champion.

So now my Hall of Fame photo looks like this:

Bron sacrificed herself for Ceren at LEAST twice during the E4 and she didn't get a place. She fucking earned a place.

Who can resist it? I can't.

My lights are on, but I'm not home
My mind is not my own
My heart sweats, my body shakes
Another bite is what it takes
I can't sleep, but I can eat
There's no doubt, I'm in deep
My throat is tight, I can't breathe
Another bite is all I need

Whoa, I like to think that I'm immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say I can't feel well fed
You know I'm gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to bread

I see the signs, but I can't read
I'm buttering at a different speed
My heart beats in double time
Another slice and they'll be mine, a one track mind
I can't be saved
Unleveaned is all I crave
If there's some left for me
I'll toast it up and add some ghee

Whoa, I like to think that I'm immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say I can't feel well fed
You know I'm gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to bread

Might as well face it I'm addicted to bread (repeat x5)

My lights are on, but I'm not home
My will is not my own
My heart sweats, my teeth grind
Another slice and they'll be mine
Whoa, I like to think that I'm immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say I can't feel well fed
You know I'm gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to bread

Might as well face it I'm addicted to bread (repeat, fade)

For anyone who's about to leave.

Mon Sep 13, 2010, 10:35 AM
I was browsing deviantART today and I came across a girl who is 13 years old. Her art far surpasses mine, but that isn't the point.
She was born in 1997. There are people alive today who were born in '97, '98, '99, 2000 even.
People I see and speak to online and in real life whose talents are evident and whose skills are developing incredibly quickly.

I remember the year 2000 just like it was yesterday.
I remember the moment 01/01/2000 happened.
I remember having a little bit of babycham and shining my spiderman torch so a silhouette of his insignia appeared on the wall.

There are some people who weren't born then but are a decade old now; living people with thoughts and ideas of their own.
The idea of that terrifies me, I've been on this earth for almost twenty years and at the end of this week – in four days time – I am leaving home and making my own way in this big old world.

It's really hard to convey exactly how this feels but I expect many of you know how it feels, having done it yourself or indeed experiencing this just as I am.
I can't tell you how strange it feels to feel so young and yet so much older at the same time; I'm not claiming to be wise and sagely and I'm not claiming to be experienced – in fact, I'm claiming just the opposite.
I'm a baby, a newborn and I'm being thrust out into the world of independence without a clue how I'm going to cope.
I will have to deal with money, buying and cooking my own meals and even (oh the horror) washing my own clothes.
Until now, it's been my mother who has done all of this for me and while I have some basic skills in all of those areas, I have no experience in doing the weekly shopping and regularly washing my clothes and all that.
I am very grateful for the things my mother has done for me.

I'm 18 years old but I feel like I'm still that 8 year old boy looking out of his living room window to see the millennium fireworks and a man dancing naked on a digger.

I still remember the days I spent crawling through our garden hedge following a path the cat had made between our garden and the field next door.
I still remember the summer my siblings and I hollowed out the massive dense hedge in the front garden using a pair of garden scissors.
I still remember the baths I shared with my sister where my father washed us before dinner and Scooby Doo.
I still remember all those times we hurt ourselves and each other playing our silly children's games.
And now the cat is dead and we bounce on the bed no more.

I recall being nine years old and the birthday of one of my classmates. He was ten years old – his age was double figures. I was in awe; he was a full decade old.
Now, nine years later, that seems like such a small number.

All these things and more; making videos with my sisters, filming our hamsters (both now deceased) running obstacle courses, eating sweets on my trampoline after school, playing with my auntie's new puppy and being unable to climb so high up onto her bed – they happened yesterday.

Yesterday I read a bedtime story about rabbits, closed my eyes and woke up 18 years old and so very scared about leaving.

Today I'm terrified and I'm unready; I want to crawl back into bed and wake up 8 again.

Tomorrow…at least I'll have more people to get drunk with.

Quills of Fury

Wed Sep 8, 2010, 2:11 PM
As some of you know, I am looking for writers for my friend's blog.
This may sound a bit strange but our idea is that if we can get lots of people to collaborate on this it'll be far more fun and interesting.
The theme of the blog is "Anger in the Pokémon world".

Cyndaquil and I can get busy with our own projects at times, so we won't always be able to write our own updates.

Basically, we are looking for people to pretend to be Cyndaquil and write about something that annoys you.
I've received a few entries so far via deviantART and CSI but not enough to keep a regular update system going.

If you're interested in writing something, email either myself or Cyndaquil:

Some writing tips include:
:bulletred: Take a personal experience and put a Pokémon spin on it. For example, one person has written about a bus journey with irritating buizels on it.
:bulletred: Think about the limitations being a Pokémon might offer; how humans react to Cyndaquil trying to do "people things" like buying alcohol, maybe.
:bulletred: Think about interactions with his trainer (Gold) - how will an exceedingly cranky Cyndaquil act when told to do things by his trainer? (also he frequently steals money from Gold's account, the pin is 2515 apparently)

You can read the blog here:
Quills of Fury

Lots of love,

PS. Cyndaquil or I may edit your posts, fix grammar, change bits to make it more suitable etc. so don't be upset if we modify it a little.
Also bear in mind that all of the posts will be submitted with Cyndaquil as the author ;D

Angry Blogging

Tue Sep 7, 2010, 4:47 AM
Hello everyone.

I am looking for a dedicated "angry" person who is interested in writing a blog.
I don't want to give away too much because it would spoil the fun, but note me if you want more details.

The general idea is that I want you to come up with something that annoys you and write about it; feel free to swear but bear in mind that some people don't like this much so don't go too overboard with it.

You're under no obligation to apply, so don't worry if this doesn't interest you.
It's a non-profit website so I'm basically looking for a volunteer - it might be better to apply if you're bored with some spare time every now and then.

You must like Pokémon and you'll need to be able to keep a secret.

So note me if you're sincerely interested.

son's Tale: Emerald Nuzlocke.

Fri Jul 30, 2010, 4:27 PM
So you may have noticed a recent influx of poorly drawn comics flying your way.
This is because I'm doing a "Nuzlocke" run.

It's basically a harder version of Pokémon with rules you set yourself.
The rules I'm playing by are these:

1. You must capture the first wild Pokémon you see in each route.
1a. If the Pokémon faints or flees, tough luck; move on. You cannot try again.
1b. If you encounter a wild Pokémon in a route before you have any balls, you cannot capture a Pokémon from that route.

2. If a Pokémon faints, it is dead and must be released.

3. The use of healing items outside of battle is strictly forbidden; if your Pokémon is poisoned on the last turn of a battle you better hope there's a Pokémon center nearby.

4. All captured Pokémon must be nicknamed. They are your friends; you love them, you have a bond with them. To lose one is heartbreaking.

5. Legendaries can not be captured. This excludes roaming legendaries, provided they are the first Pokémon you meet in a new route.

I'm making a comic of these, episodes of which you can see here:
Episode One:…
Episode Two:…
Episode Three:…
Episode Four:…
Episode Four Point Five:…
Episode Five:…
Meanwhile, the next day: Johto:…
Episode Six:…
Meanwhile, the next day: Kanto:…
Episode Eight:…

You should all do one and post the results :D

Damn it I fucking hate Ross, he's so patronising.
He just asked me if the phone rang. He KNOWS 1471 gives you the time of the last call; he only asked me to find out why I didn't pick it up. I told him I didn't hear it, but the point is that he only asks shit when the implication is that I'm lazy or inept.

"Did the phone just ring?" - if it didn't, how would he know to ask? He only asked me to find out why I didn't pick up the phone. He doesn't ask "Why didn't you pick the phone up?" like any fucking normal human being would.
This morning he called, the conversation went like this:
"Sam. Oh, have you taken the dog out already?"
"What? Was I meant to?"
"Your mum left a note on the table."
"Oh, I haven't been downstairs yet, I was just asleep."
"Well are the cats inside?"
"I don't know, I haven't been downstairs yet, you just woke me up with this phonecall."
"Make sure the cats aren't inside."
Then he hung up.

"Oh, have you taken the dog out already?" not "Sorry, did I wake you up? Your mum wants you to take the dog out."
Implying I already know about it but the fact that I hadn't done it means I'm lazy or inept, then asking me if the cats were inside - implying he doesn't believe me when I tell him I WAS ASLEEP and he woke me up.

The worst part is that he doesn't think I notice it, he thinks I'm of such low intelligence that I don't notice his fucking douchy attitude.

I went downstairs a minute ago to get some food and he interrupted his television programme to walk back and forth through the kitchen to make sure I didn't take my sandwich upstairs and eat it.
