Movies | ‘Coco’ Review

It’s been a long wait to finally watch Pixar’s Coco, a movie which was released in the US all of three months ago, but boy… was it worth it.

I knew to expect great things – this IS a Pixar film after all, known for its strikingly beautiful animation and in-depth, emotionally driven storytelling. My favourite Pixar movies include the Toy Story trilogy, Inside Out and Up just to name a few, but ever since finally getting to see Coco at the cinema, I think I do indeed have a Continue reading “Movies | ‘Coco’ Review”

So far, I have Continue reading “Catch Up With Me | Launching My YouTube Channel, Our London Adventures… AND My Engagement Story!”

Movies | ‘Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’ Review

It’s the movie everyone has been anticipating for the last couple of years since Episode VII. Sure, we had Rogue One hit cinemas last year, but we all eagerly anticipated what was next in store for newcomers Rey, Finn, BB-8 and pals. However, The Last Jedi is a new chapter that has ultimately divided opinion. Has the hype lived up to it’s multi-billion franchise name?

(I’m writing this review a few weeks after release so I can discuss my opinion on every detail, including spoilers. If you wish to avoid, I suggest you attend the nearest screening, then come straight back here!)

Okay, I’m gonna be serious now. The Last Jedi is my favourite Star Wars film of the whole franchise. Why? Continue reading “Movies | ‘Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’ Review”

“Make It Pink, Blue, Green!” Pencil Sketch

I’m finally back at the art after many months! It was nice having some time yesterday to just sit down and draw. These sort of sketches never take me that long anyway – I can have the mainframe sketched within 5 minutes, then I spend some time adding detail.

I love Aurora, but I’ve surprisingly never Continue reading ““Make It Pink, Blue, Green!” Pencil Sketch”
