Theodore prince Boxman (born 7th June 1981). He was named after the 26th American president and explorer, Theodore Roosevelt, and his parent’s favorite musician, Prince. Theodore was actually conceived at one of Prince’s early gigs at First Avenue, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is his parent’s home town. Shortly before Theodore was born his parents Marty and Jennifer Boxman moved to London to head the marine department at London zoo. They settled in Paddington.
Sadly in the summer of 1999 both his parents were killed whilst testing a new shark repellent. Theodore watched as his parent’s successfully repelled two great white sharks, unfortunately the repellent attracted giant jelly fish (a problem that was later ironed out) that stung his parents to death. Theodore now makes a small fortune from his parent’s invention, but hates to go out in wide open spaces, local swimming pools and refuses to eat jelly.
When Theodore was a young child the other kids were constantly making fun of his name. At the time when he was growing up he shared his name with a three inch talking chipmunk with a funny voice. The constant name teasing was the reason enough for Theodore changed his name to Prince, however, the numerous references to a short weirdly dressed Androgynous man in cuban heels lead to even more name teasing. He then changed it to his first initials: T.P, and that worked for a while until the “T.P for my bum hole” episode of Beavis and butthead aired on channel 4 in the 90’s. His peers soon realized that the initials stood for toilet paper and it was back to the constant piss taking. so he change it back to Theodore again. Because of this weird history of name changing, Theodore now has a strong dislike to Prince and his music; Prince William and Harry (but mainly because they’re sloaney socialite dicks); and Alvin and the chipmunks.
In fact Theodore doesn’t like any music unless it has reference to a movie or TV show, and links most of his daily activities to movie soundtracks. I.e. he always listens to “Flight of the Valkyries” from Apocalypse Now while he’s pooing, and if it’s been an emotional bog roll clenching, all clothes off (including watches),bum stinging, sweaty battle poo, he’ll play 'It's Over' ('Good-Bye') from ‘terminator 2 judgment day’ sound track whilst flushing.
Since his parents have died, Theodore stop going out and purchases all his shopping from tesco.com, or he calls out for takeaway food. As a result most of his friends with in the first year gave up on trying getting him out, and he now only has a couple of close friends who go around his two bedroom flat and visit him from time to time. The only time Theodore leaves his flat is to visit his parent’s graves, but only in full Robocop attire (he’s recently been persuaded to keep it to a 3 piece minimum, foot wear, upper body armor and helmet)

I’ve been talking a lot recently to a couple of my close friends about inspiration; what they and I think makes art and creativity so interesting. I think sharing messages and thoughts is the key.
This is what these discussions have concluded. Choose your medium to communicate your messages. Your mind is the creative part so pick a medium, whether it's music, writing, film, animation, painting, sculpture, and share yourself via it.
so here is my life drawing from today the last couple days
this is a poem by my friend that i find inspiring.
Merely about doing
“Underestimating yourself is the beginning of not achieving”
Instead of telling yourself I can’t, just do.
The way you do that is, stop becoming your thought and start becoming your action.
When thinking hard about the action you want to do, a lot of the time you think yourself out of doing It. Which is the enemy within yourself.
Just become your action,
Get a clear mind, find your focus, your comfort zone, and go for it. Your actions are the only thing worth living for.
an independent thinker.

Anyways, I’ve also not done any digital work for a long time, so I finished off a Spiderman drawing I started about 4 months ago (that I found while under my desk, when I was cleaning my disgusting bedroom today, they don't call me messy Timbo for nothing) so I decided to colour it. I drop it on top of a background i did when I was practising bg's for my final project.
Well I think that covers everything...I’m going to start animating again tomorrow. I might even do another post by the end of the week.
