You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

**********PET PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY!**************

I’ve managed to re-arrange my days at work, so instead of working 6/7 days a week I’m now down to 4, hurray! More free time means more time for the important stuff in my life, like art! In celebration I’ve decided to do a pet portrait give away since I’m a little out of practice.

Please note that these are digital paintings. 


1. The winner will be chosen at random either with a random number generator or a good ol’ fashioned pull from a hat.

2. You do not have to be following me.

3. Reblog only. Likes will not count.

4. Please do not reblog any more than three times to make it fairer for everyone. 

5. You will receive ONLY the digital file of the painting, not a printed copy. You are welcome to get the file printed yourself for your own personal use (eg. not for you to resell as your own.) This is because a) I appreciate people aren’t comfortable handing out their address to someone online and b) I can’t afford anything right now. Nope! Not even a £2 print and it’s £2 p&p. Very sorry!

6. You must have your ask open so that I can contact you to let you know you’ve won.

7. The giveaway will end September 30th and I will draw the following day.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle collider, built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). The LHC is designed to answer some of the most profound questions about the universe: What is the origin of mass? Why are we made of matter and not antimatter? What is dark matter made of? It could also provide important new clues about conditions in the very early universe, when the four forces of nature were rolled into one giant superforce.

What it says in my paper: "Specimens were mounted and stabilised at an oblique angle using polystyrene and small wooden braces inside polyethylene and polypropylene vessels"

What it actually means: "Specimens were mounted and stabilised at a slant using Styrofoam stuck down with toothpicks inside a Tupperware tub"
