The last post here at Messy Miscreation was back in April of this year and there are many reasons to that. The last time I properly sat down and created artwork for any project was for the Wellcome Collection in July [posted in August] but unfortunately my life took a turn I didn’t foresee. I … More It’s been a while
Long story short is my brain can’t handle it currently to balance Piece Of Mind, Moving house and running Messy Miscreation all simultaneously. When I started Piece of Mind last year I had more time to be able to juggle all of the above and I now realise that I’m only on person. I still … More Wait? Where did Piece Of Mind go?
According to everyone’s favourite website, google has told me today is the last day of Autism Awareness Week. Many of you probably saw my opinion on what this “celebration” has become as it is raising awareness for all the wrong reasons. Along my travels I have met many fellow autistic adults trying to find their … More Living a double life [Part artist, part dyer]

Hopefully its dapper charm will come across especially since we spent … More The February store update lands!
As I lay in bed last night it suddenly occurred to me that two years ago I was preparing to start a business with the help of the Princes Trust. Messy Miscreation began its life over the course of 2016 and if you had told me what I achieved in 2017, I would have laughed. … More Messy Miscreation: A reflection of 2017

For each day of October I posted an A5 drawing which ended up being a mistake because I was working in a very detailed style and would eat up most … More Inktober 2017!

It goes to show what a willing group of artists and one crazy big eared man can do for charity. It was only a month ago I came up with the idea to host a art sale to raise money for charity. I posted on social media seeking artists that would be willing to help … More We made £244 for Mind!
