In a world where we can be anything and our dreams can become a pixellated reality it may seem surprising to decide to go tiny.
We recently decided to downsize on our island home at Ash Falls so we could optimise the remaining land impact across the region. We’ve been watching a whole bunch of Tiny House and Van tours on YouTube recently, so going tiny seemed like a great opportunity to put in to pixels all the stuff we’ve picked up.
We were invited to take a small gallery space at Kultivate’s 5th Annual Spring Art Show this week! The show ran from 24th April to 1st May on a Paris themed region build by Kultivate owner and editor, John (johannes.huntsman), and featured photography and sculpture from a variety of artists from across the grid alongside live performances culminating in an awards party under the eiffel tower.

We were recently commissioned by Keely Mistwood to create a unique, lush green, coastal environment on a private Homestead. After a couple of chats about here home and how she wished it would be we had a little brief and a lot of freedom! Make sure to check out our HD video of how this commission turned out by clicking the image above. 💕
Orca Watch is back for 2019! Running from 17th May to 26th May, Sea Watch Foundation will be based on the cliffs of the Caithness coast in northern Scotland looking for the UK’s elusive resident orca pods.
Today we’re celebrating the first anniversary of the surf at Ash Falls!
Last year we produced seven regions in ten months with little time off. By the end of October we already knew we needed to allow ourselves time and space to recharge, but it was technical issues which ultimately forced our break. With time away from SecondLife we were able to reflect on an amazing year, full of incredible highs that ultimately overshadowed some very difficult lows.
This last week has been an interesting for the whale watching community everywhere. On the morning of 25th September a Beluga Whale was spotted in the Thames Estuary just outside of London and the country has been somewhat gripped by his plight. There’s been concern for his well being ranging from monitoring his swimming patterns to ensure he doesn’t end up too distressed and to ensure that well-meaning people hoping to catch a glimpse of him don’t venture on to the water to further stress him as he navigates the unfamiliar environment.
