The layering is beautiful, as usual, it is Lesley as we know her. I hope things will get better very soon, Lesley,…Continue

I received this yesterday from Dean Marks, the King of Bar Code Art....Though at this point he's probably more like the Emperor or the High Priest or even the God of Bar Code Art. He has taken it beyond the beyond. Check it out.
Now I have to admit the first thing that I thought of was not bar code. I don't think the two dimensional scan can convey the tactile…Continue
Even though this boekie has been posted it's not within my constraint ability to not post it again. Up close and personal the covers glisten and reflect light like a zillion stars. Always a pleasure Cheryl. And thanks for the inspiration.

I OFTEN quote The Waste Land – its one of my favorite poems by T S Eliot – and yip, I’m doing it again in light of the FAB work I received from Marie. It’s the new year you see, and when Marie is not sending out dragons, she sends out mail like this. And here I have an extra reason to use FAB too - even SCIENTISTS use FAB!
