This month marks the 10 year anniversary of keeping this web log of
some of my hobbies, and posting articles and tutorials that have
hopefully helped or inspire others to get started with graphics, or

I enjoy and will certainly take pride in.
A project aimed at helping me promote my artistic skills is the
creation of a dedicated web site highlighting the work I will be able to
do for people. It is early days yet, but it is beginning to take shape
and I have enjoyed updating myself with some of the recent changes to
Blender producing material for the site, and a few other projects.

working on since leaving work is to convert a Volkswagen T5 builders
