Designing professional quality fonts - for the love of it (will accept commissions if you want one that is special).
A number of the families of fonts that I have designed being used in print, in: Punjabi language newspaper section headers and advertisements; on the cover designs of literally dozens of Punjabi language books; and, on the posters, flyers, DVD covers, soundtrack CDs and title sequences of a number of Bollywood films.

Now just maintaining and updating as additional details expose themselves, I wrote the book 'Let the Devil wear Black - memoirs of an analyst' from the tapes of covertly recorded meetings, evidence supplied and contemporaneous notes.
The book covers the experiences of an analyst from discovery, through fraud and corruption, deaths and exposure, to the closing of the Courtaulds Chemicals site in Spondon Derby in 2013, although it has been carefully relocated in Manchester so that those who were not guilty can enjoy a bit of privacy - at least from the casually curious.
The book is available as an ebook on Kindle and has a resources site - click on the link.
Derby, United Kingdom
Professional Pavement Artist
Derby's Pavement Artist - yes, actually earning a living wage from it. Produced images in pastel on concrete on a daily basis, weather permitting.
As Derby's pavement artist, I was Interviewed on BBC Radio and also appeared on Thames Television's 'What's My Line' and beat the panel.
In addition I also took on some painting commissions - oil on canvas - proper artists pigments as opposed to student pigments.
