I finally finished the second documentary with my good friend and writer Marcela Hervia about the homeless issue in Manchester. (About 3 weeks a go but haven’t got time to blog!) When me and Marcela finished the first video it wasn’t any news about any good shelter for them but now there are news that empty buildings will be open for them so hopefully the promises are genuine and we won’t see anyone sleeping rough in this cold winter.
The main thing for me that kept me thinking A LOT is seeing young people on the streets that is not good for the future of a city because those young people are the future. In any situation they need help and direction and I hope they will be taken seriously to be out of the streets and get their lives back.
I don’t know why being homeless became a badge and the forever dark at the end of the tunnel when as a human we know life has ups and downs and everybody deserve help and chances to live as long as they are breathing.
I will write about it soon but … yeah … it just broke my heart watching people living in the streets in the Manchester and as it gets worst from more than 5 years a go till now.
I also made a short comedy animation from one of my short pieces at Commonword Identity writing workshop.
It will be screened at CAN‘s “Community Spirit” event at Mad lab and in Filmonik at old corner house (MMU) and I will upload in youtube soon.
I just invite everyone to watch my documentary just below and let’s not think about the BUSY schedule before Christmas and … yeah I’m fine and I will write about it soon.

So basically I finished two projects at Community Arts Northwest (CAN) that was one of the greatest experience and opportunities I could have as a Digital Artists/Animator. Beside finishing the production of my first test animation based on my research and Japanese Mythology that was an amazing success for me.
Do I.T. that was a digital media course and “Rule 35” a project and performance based on the detention system in UK specially Yarl’swood.
And both were so successful and made me proud being a part of these great projects and meeting new people and getting more on track in my professional life.
So looking forward to expand my research plus new opportunities and new beginnings universe 😉
The brochure above is the latest project that I am on as an digital Artist and its called “Rule 35” by CAN (Community Arts North West Manchester)

And I just need a bit rest in whole my life and plan to do some thing for my website not just this blog and bunch of update. But at last I am posting in these busy days of my life having adventure as I call them “placeless memories” that is so relatable to my situation. (And I just made up an English word from relate and yes let’s say relatable 🙂 )

The meeting today with Yuko Howes the amazing Japanese lady from JSNW (Japanese Society of North West) was made me think of I forgot to add the photo of Japan Day!
So The Japan Day in Manchester was on 25th of August 2014 with lots different activities from showing martial arts to the costume contest mostly from animation and manga characters and information about the Japanese art (like craft and paintings and etc.) and culture.
And Yuko invited me being as the guest of fantastic tea ceremony of Japan and I absolutely LOVED it.
The adventure was cool and the venue “Midland Hotel” was great, and I think bigger venue was even better because LOTS of people came and yeah! … it was full with people who were interested in Japan and it made me super happy 🙂
Here are some photos:
And finally me as a Japanese warrior … Kind a … ^_^
“The pen of creation” is about Artistic creations based on the far East of Asia.
