Hi, I’m Mark and this page is the best place to explore The Vibes. It’s a magical mystery tour – just click on any image…
I’m a designer of websites, magazine covers, and all things graphic. Check out my online store where you can buy my work at Mark Wallis Design or chill out to some cool grooves at my music blog High Tunes. My full portfolio is here, and all of these sites have been designed by me.
The Vibes (you’re reading it now!) is an award-winning blog which has been Freshly Pressed by WordPress and has a large global audience with hundreds of subscribers. We’ve had input from famous authors, Olympic Torch-Bearers and been featured on the front page of French online newspaper L’Express.
Occasionally I paint in oils when I can tear myself away from the computer, and you can click on the paintings above to see the finished pieces. I know. Pull up your fainting couch and ready the smelling salts, Penelope.
I mess with music – I can’t help it! You can hear my reinterpretations, edits and original tunes on The Cosmic Jukebox. Just click on the gramophone.
Before a good one pops out, I have to take a lot of photographs. Check out the best ones by clicking on the goose, or type ‘photography’ into the search bar on the left.
I’m originally from the South of England, and you can see me returning to my place of birth after 36 years in The North. Just click on the postcard. To see more of my videos visit my YouTube channel here. I’ve managed to escape from Manchester several times: follow my adventures around the world by visiting my Travel Page. That’s your ticket below…
Manchester, for those who don’t know, is in the North of England. It’s the cradle of the modern world, birthplace of the industrial revolution, computers and Vimto. Check your atlas for other less interesting Manchesters. I lived in the Northern Quarter, which is quite a busy, bohemian part of the city with lots of galleries and street art, noisy bars and independent retail. I also lived in Amsterdam for a couple of years, which was an amazing experience (I didn’t inhale.) Gardening is a hobby, if you can call six flower boxes a garden.
In no particular order, the things I would carefully place in a lifeboat, before I deliberately shipwreck myself on a desert island (click on any panel)
Soft focus and diffuse light really are your friends in the header bar portrait aren’t they?
