This week I meet Colin Holden.

Colin's work has a cartoon style, but he prefers to work on a large scale format, usually around five feet tall. He uses this platform to make pieces that express a timeline something that dates back to when he returned home after being sent away to boarding school as a kid.

I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca
