Something Unexpected that has happened….
This was it. It had been about a week since we were in Ireland for a trip and it was time to go home back to Scotland. The cases were packed and we all left the hotel room to get back to the car but then it happened, the one thing that would change my life forever. Something that would shock me and made me realise how much my father got more silly and accidental.
He left the car keys in the bumper.
The bumper locked up as he closed it and the keys just lied there silently. When he realised what happened he felt an urge to laugh but somehow felt more annoyance in his mind.

ENVIROMENT THAT INSPIRES ME
even though I have never been to this country before, its inspired me because I started getting into thier culture, even started getting into drawing manga and I ended up being a Japanophile as a result of it.
I like the landscapes in Japan and the culture which somehow inspires me to make more manga and art.
REAL LIFE INCIDENT THAT INSPIRED ME
Charlie Hebdo Terrorist attacks in Paris, France.
On 7th January 2015 two Islamic Extremists burst in the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo a humorous satirical magazine in Paris and murdered many cartoonists and artists as they were angered about their religion and their prophet Mohammed being made fun of.
this was a horrible tragedy and became the result and debates of freedom of speech however in way it inspired me because I am an artist and cartoonist myself as these people that were killed were cartoonists that were just doing their job and making a stance towards freedom of speech so I can quite relate to these people as I got a simular hobbie to them.
It also has inspired me to make cartoons containing the now famous slogan:
“Je suis Charlie” which represents freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
this is something that I may do during the summer holidays.
