The Laughing heart

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

Compuderr skillzzz

I used photoshop for the first time last week to complete a uni brief we had been given to design a book cover for a wildlife book using a maximum of three colours and incorporating text etc etc yadda yadda
anyway heres what I came up with
I hand drew the owl and mice and scanned them in and then inverted the outline - all very complicated and technical I assure thee :)
