Fab night of my degree show exhibition. Thank you for all those who came. Really pleased.

So tired now I'm going to sleep for a week.

Last night in berlin and I'm spending it stuck in my hostel after coming down with a bug Monday.

Still I love this city though I'm keen for my own bed now. Met some interesting people. Not met others but that's life, seen great art and sites.

I'll be back. X

They aren't kidding with the all black dress code for panorama bar. No way I'm getting in in denim shorts.

I'm swearing just watching then queue in this heat.

My outfit choice for the day. Different to what I usually wear round galleries in Wales. #wheninrome

Much needed sit down after a productive afternoon visiting memorials, exhibitions.

Thrilled to see the memorial to homosexuals by elmgreen and dragset at last. And that the video is playing too.

The "gay" (schwule) museum  was as dissapointing as last time and was so generalised even largely featuring subjects that weren't homosexual.

And I bumped into a couple from north Wales and chatted for a bit.

Well it's official I passed with an upper second class honours. Not bad considering I completed half a degree in about 8 weeks with less support, as opposed to 6 months with full staff.

Still the highlight will be a first for written work when previously I resat GCSE English.

And then all the skills I've gained in ceramics printmaking casting. To be more brave and open with my art work deal with subjects more directly when I wouldn't talk about them before. And being more confident, is barely go down the road alone 3 years ago, tomorrow I'm off to berlin alone, can't wait to go to celebrate now.

Version 2 did not go so well, wanted to make it lightweight, though went far too thin. Oh well been years since I made the first solid refresher.

My ceramic nubs came in handy to shape it though.

More to come.

Remember when you where younger and you used to just draw? Characters from games, cartoons comics. Where ever you were with who ever? I did at least.

I haven't done it much for a long time and to be honest I've done so little sketching even on the degree. I want to try relearn that carefree attitude to drawing again, unlearn the self consciousness. So along with other projects, I'll be making use of my collection of blank sketch books and materials (Including some cheap colouring pencils like these) to just draw and make art for fun.

To start here's Dr. Robotnik from the Sonic series, games I played growing up and probably one of the biggest influencers in making me draw as a child, I remember drawing him and sonic so much, while I may not have as much spare time anymore deep down I'm still a gamer (currently replaying kingdom hearts though and looking forward to checking out a gay greek romance in the new assassins creed). #fanart #artforfun #sonicthehedgehog #drrobotnik #pencil #colouring #games #retrogaming #90sgames #megadrive #nostalgia #carefree #homebargains #gamer #gaymer #chaosemeralds #firststeps #andnowforsomethingcompletelydifferent

1 week and I'll be on a plane to Berlin. Can not wait! It's been a rough month with lots of disappointments including in people. Carry on packed and ready to go. Been 3 years since my last visit. Looking forward to seeing what's on @kwinstitutefcontemporaryart
@kwfriends which I'm staying just round the corner from in a #hostel last time Michael Muller proved inspiring....wonder if the other near by gallery still does that to die for onion soup.

But here I come #berlinbiennale #folsomeurope #folsomberlin2018 #folsomberlin #art #celf #kunst #gay #gayartist #pride #berlin #lgbt #relaxation #culture #fun #men #leather #harness #jock #gayfetish

Food firing at university was interesting. Also a bit worrying that #macdonalds basically comes out like melted plastic. Shame so far my attempt at firing medication has been unsuccessful so far. Oh well more experimenting.

Lovely day in Swansea checking out some exhibitions and some of the #beeppaintingprize (Sadly by the the time I found one it's doors where closing). The N. S. Harsha exhibition is well worth checking out at #glynvivian. Puts you firmly in the art.

I still dread to think what a grindr pasty is made of. Desperation dehumanization and insecurity?

And had a lovely free gin and orange cocktail on the slug & lettuce. Cheers #sluginthecity I so wanted to reenact #icarus in a field at your bar but had no one to take the photo.

Found a small embroidery hoop I've been looking for too. #Productive
