Fike's "Rosetta Stone" is posted at AF2. Thx Fike

Comment by De Villo Sloan on Sunday

Here is the new work from Yayoi S.W. (Washington State, USA) on AF2. These are from IUOMA-Ning but AF2 tends to get other folks who are not IUOMA members. So it all works. Thanks Yayoi for the great pieces!

Comment by De Villo Sloan on Sunday

Jayne Lyons' (Minnesota, USA) asemic piece is posted on AF 2 along w/ a rant on asemics & the Rosetta Stone that will probably continue when Fike's new work goes up. Thx Jayne. Great start!

ok Jayne. Also Terry Owenby needs starters, I know, if she's here.

Comment by Jayne Barket Lyons on Saturday

De Villo...awesome! btw - I will take you up on sending me some starter pages. Would love to collaborate with you. Thx

Comment by De Villo Sloan on Friday

Jayne, the newest draft looks great. I'll put it on AF next or so.

I'll also use that piece by Yayoi as I haven't seen any new work in a while and it looks great.


Comment by Jayne Barket Lyons on Friday
Sounds good, De Villo! Meanwhile, here is a (hopefully) final scan of my work. When I reviewed the one I posted yesterday, I noticed a flaw. Maybe no one would have noticed, but it bothered me. I'm persnickety at times...
