what i do

words

to be fair i don't make words, i only use them. i choose the words from a magic cauldron, called the dictionary, and as if by magic i create a story, a thought.

drafts

i don't know make drawings, so i just do rough drafts on any piece of paper and thereby i get drawings.
another paradox!

photography

i am not a professional photographer, but i'm a shot addict - bang! bang!
i shoot to the left, to the right and from time to time i get some great photos.
