About The lad


I’m Mark Baldwin though I’ve been going by Silly Beggar since I bought the domain back in 2010. Back then I was young and stupid and didn’t realize how tactless that name was but hey I got the domain and you didn’t.

I’ve been working in comedy. “Working” sounds like I was being paid. I weren’t. Nobody even knew I was alive and that was fine. I’d do a lot of animation work, live shows and some video stuff. It’s hard to motivate yourself when you’re on the Dole but I got enough done and learned a fuck-ton.

Then a few years back I created an Animated Sitcom called Ends Meet for RTÉ 2 that you’ll likely have never heard of. Which is a shame cause it took about 3 years to make. Let me know if ya have or want to see it.

I’d like to think of writing being my major thing I want to do. And I guess I still do. I work everyday on scripts and shows and hope to have lightning strike me twice with another commission. Here’s hoping.

Until then I’m going back to posting stories, drawings and making zines like The Scrag.

Hope you enjoy :3
