So I’m thinking of going abroad somewhere snowy for my birthday weekend.
Sarah is going to be in Amsterdam, Kerry will be in Australia, Hayley will be in Paris, Ryan will be in Canada anyway and none of my other friends will have the money so ill be going alone but I need a holiday and some snow in my life.

Hmm… what to do?

The Magnificent 7 at Point Village, Dublin

Situated on the side of The Gibson Hotel my latest mural is a 13 foot high by 150 foot long wall featuring the majority of my models/muses to date plus a first outing for a couple of new faces

Happy Earth Day! The stunning photos above show the Sacred Headwaters, a pristine area of protected land in a remote corner of northern British Columbia. The area is about the size of the entire state of Oregon, and only one tiny road winds through it. (For context, on the US mainland, the farthest you can get from a maintained road is about 20 miles. Oregon is 98,466 square miles.)
