Exactly six months ago I was artist in residence at Redstone Press HQ.

I made a little booklet to send in thanks to Julian. It was printed on my desktop, using heavier than normal paper.

Iā€™m thinking about how to create and share more stuff as print-it-yourself physical artefacts.

And this is the digital drawing:

It's based on a photo collage I shared last week. You can see the photo collage in the archive of previous emails (, if you didn't already receive it into your inbox.

Hello Reader Until you attempt to describe a still image, using actual words, it doesn't really mean much. Or, to put that the other way around: by describing a picture - actually choosing words and uttering them or writing them down - you can't avoid finding stories in it.
