The Man In Black

“I wore black because I liked it. I still do and wearing it still means something to me. It’s still my symbol of rebellion—against a stagnant status quo, against our hypocritical houses of God, against people whose minds are closed to others’ ideas.” – Johnny Cash

Growing up as a punk rock musician, every T-Shirt I owned was a black band shirt. People even called our social scene the black army.. So it’s with a hint of personal pride that the High Seas range is now available in black.

We’ll be adding more designs to our store over the coming days.

The High Seas Brand

Let me say a little on what the High Seas brand is all about: those who know me and follow this blog know I’ve done a little time in jail, it was a great tragedy for myself, my family and friends. At the heart of my crime was deterioration in mental health so part of the High Seas mission is to support those in crisis through positive imagery and positive ethics, to have fun doing it and learn a lot along the way.

We are proud to announce that in the coming days we will be setting up a small donation from each sale to go to ‘The Black Dog Institute’ a charity that supports people with mental health issues.

Black Dog Institute | Science. Compassion. Action.

Wishing everyone calm seas and smooth sailing in whatever walk of life you’re from.

High Seas Clothing

Followers of this blog will notice I haven’t been posting poetry for some time. The truth is I’ve said everything I wanted to say..

It’s in my nature to stay industrious though so for a while I was drawing and now I’m launching an online store selling unique nautical themed t-shirts…

The first of many designs to come:

“High Seas Clothing is project all about finding dry land safe harbor in the sea of life. A lighthouse is a mate guiding others to safety, an anchor is to be safe at sea and a broken sailor is a mate who’s down on his luck. We encourage you to find meaning where you can in the nautical aesthetic and pray you keep safe from the sharks and the storms.” 

Wish me luck on this new venture, I’d love to hear from you so let me know your thoughts, good and bad on this new direction..



Those who follow my poetry know I’m heavily interested in nautical metaphors and the idea of a lighthouse keeping weary sailors from harm is a favorite. With that in mind this is my latest foray into visual art while the poetry sits on the shelf.

Keen to hear your thoughts, criticism and suggestions to help improve.
