A Gentlemen’s Guide to Style

I wanted to focus on a mens style guide. There are many of you out there who are simply playing it too safe or too boring when there is just no excuse for it. I’ve created a 14 piece capsule wardrobe of bare essentials just for you men out there that want a little guidance into looking street chic for any occasion.

Photoshop!

First off…HURRAY FOR MEEE! *does a victory dance*

After literally almost a decade of promising myself i’d learn how to use photoshop i’ve only JUST learnt a few basics this saturday with the tremendous help of Frankie Biscuit (thank you!) So this post is really short and sweet, I thought i’d just upload my first attempt and the second piece i’m currently working on right now.

Salutations all!

With much regret this amazing blog was abandoned years ago due to PURE laziness! I plan to try and turn this around, hopefully with the help of Frankie Biscuit and bring back the incoherant babbling of some kooky kids behind a screen! Much has changed career wise for the both of us since 2009 and in due time we shall fill you all in! So i’ve kept myself busy as a makeup artist and have been grateful to be apart of some amazing projects, once in a while I manage to squeeze through a few drawings in my spare time!
