With sales hat on there will be availble an ebook sometime at the end of the year from my web site which will explain how some of my work was achieved, stay tuned.

hey victor thanks for passing by; well sure you always do when you can. i find this type of work very personal & as such i imagine created with much more emotion & passion & it shows. these are your best pieces by far though that said the rest is astonishing anyway & i know its not a contest.

well yes i got one of the new 20" screen mac with 2gb ram (not the biggest & best but meets my needs) at last i can work with less fretting its a real nice machine man & cs works fine with it; so far! and the new op system is not bad either. lots of new gadgets + i got a airport express that aids the whole experience of accessing the internet. can't wait to get the tv box & another hard drive which takes it to another level.

anyway must stop playing with this thing my stomachs rubbing on my backbone gotta get some grub.


catch you again soon.
