Wallace has always felt as though he is on the outside looking in. As though the world is a snow globe and while he can hold it delicately, he can’t quite fit into it. He is an observer, and also a sound collector. He carries a small recorder with him and records the bits and pieces of noise that captivate him. He captures the sounds of town and mixes them with his own songs. It’s the only way to make the world make sense to him. To collect the noise, take it home, and weave it in with his life’s own soundtrack.

Animals and their Vices in an ongoing project that mixes images and words. Each animal has a painting, and also a small biography. Every animal’s story is unique; a snippet of their character and circumstances to entertain the reader and celebrate the sweet absurdity of this world.
These colourful, whimsical 5x7inch prints each feature one of the cast of Animals and their Vices. Included with each print is the animals story – a vignette about their lives.
