This is from 1997 when I was still at school; I was always discouraged from this graphic style by teachers so I don’t have much around.

Reminiscing about my time at University while thinking about new horizons. These two different landscapes were both captured while studying for my degree at the University of St Andrews.

The Wasp

I wandered lonely as a wasp, who cannot find her feet
For every time she tries to land upon a tasty treat,
Waving hands and tempers flared, thwart her simple plan;
She only wants to settle down and feast upon some jam.

“I don’t know what else I can say,
I could hang on the ‘phone anyway
And just listen to your static.”
