Yes, I had a very nice birthday, thank you. I got lotsa cool prezzies, including the antique bookcase, above, from myself. I'm really quite pleased.
In other news, there's this: Round about the recent craft market craziness, I was also asked to do some illustrations for a story in the new issue of The Future Fire, one of which even made it onto the title page! I haven't had a chance yet to read the other stories in the zine, but the one I got to work on was really quite cool. So, check it out.
And finally, I went fencing last Thursday! And what an extraordinary amount of fun it was. I think I shall go back.
