In response to all those kindly souls who have politely enquired, over the last couple of weeks or so, whether or not I'm dead, I have to report that I have so far not turned up my toes, rattled my clack or shuffled off this mortal coil.
Apart from eating and drinking myself to a standstill over the festive period, I've been playing around with a new (well, new to me anyway) technique called "paintography" - which, broadly speaking, means pissing about with Photoshop (mostly the Pixel Bender plug-in for CS5) to give images a painterly effect.
Waddya think so far?
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL!!
