Wrong Side of the Pond started off as a simple blog: I wrote about soccer, people would read it. Nothing more, nothing less. But as time has worn on, it’s expanded beyond a home for my written works by accommodating my other creations. Chief among those: the many visuals I’ve made to help augment the words — written and spoken — on this site and elsewhere.
