2013 was my favorite year ever.

Amongst the great things were …
Selling my art/camping from town to town around the UK again with two backpacks after breaking my ankle in 2012 and being unable to walk for months.
Re-discovering and having an ongoing love affair with my bike.
Getting over my obvious nerves and playing live again at the Off Key Sessions in Bristol and at the Homenormalism Festival at Cafe Oto.
Having my albums Book Of The Folded Forest on Home Normal and The Blizzard That Birthed Her on Facture released into the world.
Planting seeds that will blossom into 2014, finding me once again in Spain, Scotland and Montreal.
