Messy, but moving…

It’s been an art-free few weeks, but I’m finally getting some traction again. I’ve got two fencing tutorials roughed out (micro mini and improvements on the stablemate) and one in the ‘experimental’ stages (silicone rubber casting using Lego boxes).

I ‘m tentatively naming it [YANS] (yet another new story), because my track record for working existing stories is horrible. But that means I need to think about what sort of book I’d like to read…
