Yes, I did set things aside when I went swanning off to Europe and, since my return, one or two little personal flies have managed to stick themselves in my ointment.
But I am getting on with my books.
Some of you, I know, enjoy the luxury of high-end printers and can guarantee longer-lasting results. I am restricted to an A4 non-archival ink jet model. Now, while I am quite happy with the inks it uses, they are water-based, which can be a problem if I want to work back into pages. Did I hear someone say "do the artwork first, then allow for printing." Hmm...this precludes a greater grasp than mine of the mathematics!
So the typist me takes a back seat while the artist me gets on with the illustrations. Hand-made, indeed.
But while I'm here...I did try to construct a Jacob's Ladder (like this one), but not based on a square or rectangle. The "fall" resulted in a ghastly tangle so I scratched that idea for the moment! There is another version of a Jacob's Ladder and bits of paper litter my desk...
... and my third book is not even beyond sketches yet.But I am working!
