If there were a vote to see who the most appreciated photoblogger was then my vote would go to you. You are truly a creative person in the fact that you are able to come up with infinite designs for masks, the quality of which are quite engaging. The fact that you are sticking to your one line of enquiry.

Please tell me more about yourself eg background training work?
russell higgs: thanks for your supportive comment Chad.

Here's 3 factoids from my past....

1: In primary school (in north London in the 60s) I was a story teller. I would sometimes be asked to stand in front of the class and make up stories. A few times I was even asked to stand in for absent teachers. The head teacher of my primary school used to call me Professor Higgs. I was a very smart child and I found schoolwork very easy. But as is often the case with bright kids, the school system did not engage my attention. I left school when I was 16.

2: In the early 80s I formed a band called Wicked Kitchen Staff. I sang and I shoplifted consumer goods to redistribute amongst the audience. Many people believe that the cakes we fed to the audience were space-cakes. But in reality they were just regular cakes, sometimes made by my nan.

3: In december 2000 I chose to commit to not wearing any clothes for an indefinite period of time (which eventually lasted an entire month).
