His Lordship will see you now

Bunter
So... did the butler do it? Well, he certainly does it for me. Ahahaha! I'm allowed to make bad jokes when my tinnitus is driving me mad, which it has been for four days in a row now.
Anyhoo... for those who are unfamiliar with the the early 80ies BBC dramatisation of the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries... which I must admit I was until quite recently... this fellow here is Lord Wimsey's multi-talented man servant, Bunter, played by the ridiculously charming Richard Morant. Enjoy.

Beautiful nightmare

Ben
I like writing, always have. Sometimes I have really vivid dreams with plots and characters and I wake up and try to write down as much of it as I can remember. A few years ago now I  had a snippet of a dream... about this guy. I'm guessing I must have been exposed to something Frankenstein's Monster-esque at the time. I don't remember anymore. Long story short, I woke up intrigued... Who was he? What had happened to him? Unfortunately the dream offered up very little in way of answers to these questions. I have been trying to piece his story together ever since. He didn't have a name, so for now I've called him Ben and although his story is still on-going I can promise one thing... he'll get a happy ending :-)
I decided to road test a brush from the 'Ditlev Fine Art' PS brush set which I have had for ages but had yet to use.

Detective Sergeant

DS James Hathaway
It is no secret that I love a good murder mystery, particularly when solved by dynamic duos - such as DI Lewis and his inscrutable sidekick DS Hathaway.

For the past few weeks one of my favourite little exchanges between Lewis and Hathaway has consistently popped into my head. Things are all just a bit like that at the moment.

Lewis: 'You seem awfully chipper this morning, Sergeant.'
Hathaway: 'I'm crying inside sir.'
