Hey, I’m currently planning a trip to the United States. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time. The motives for doing the trip now, this year, I can’t expose just yet but the reasons nonetheless are result of something positive I have done for myself.
I’m hoping to be there for a month or so; I’m traveling by myself so the trip is completely on my terms as to what I see and do. I have an idea of where I want to go internally though would love suggestions from everyone especially from locals or recent visitors on where else I could go along my rough paths or what within each city is worth checking out or local tips and tricks or people that would like to meet up.
My current trip takes me from:
> San Francisco, CA > Austin, TX (maybe) > Chicago, IL > Portland, OR > Vancouver, Canada (maybe) > Los Angles, CA >
Although I would like to go to Boston as well, I’m not planning at this stage to go any further east than Chicago.
My keyword/ phrases for the trip are:
‘culture’, the ‘lowbrow arts’, ‘history’, ‘comics’, ‘music’, ‘folk arts’, ‘craft arts’, ‘design’, ‘illustration’, ’boutique’, ‘bespoke’, ‘networking’, ‘toys’, ‘books’, ‘zoos’, ‘walking’, ‘good public transport’, ‘galleries’, ‘museums’, ‘events’, ‘street art’, ‘relaxation’, … + maybe some more to come
Any one who has a suggestion or comment please either contact me by,
This is my submission for DUD#2. DUD is brought out by the Dunedin Comic Collective and this issue comes out early May.
It’s inspired by the time when Castro’s cousins, Honey and Layla were down in Dunedin and they watched Karate Kid 2 together.

An illustration I did recently to accompany an article by Nick Laird on the Windsor Heritage street lamps. The lamps which are found on George Street in Dunedin, resemble Lighthouses which my image tries to accentuate; teetering on the edge of the rocks, and ambiguous in scale.
Hello, its has been a quiet couple of months I know with the holiday break and what not. I am keeping busy however, with a number of different ventures underway in the new year which I slowly reveal through this site.
The first, is a project I’ve had in the works for a couple of years and am finally giving it a full head of steam. It is entitled God Awful, which will orientate around the production of a magazine feed by themed submission. More on this to come but the site design is under way and will be launched in a couple of month all going well. Keep an eye on it here as it unravels.
God Awful is one of those phrases which can be inherently interpreted a number of ways. The magazine will hopefully be the antithesis of the usual negative interpretation, focusing on things which are inherently, well, not awful. The mantra for it all is ‘Good God, that’s Awfully Good”.
The project in essence is an formal curated extension of what I already do here in a way, hopefully identifying (well subjectively) things which people should know about, though with each edition having a specific conceptual sway. A lot less puppy pictures though, except for the one above.
