    I have been working on a logo design and a new website for a new stereogram partnership with Brad Honeycutt, who has been acting unofficially as our agent. Now it will be official.

    The blue logo is the one we selected.

    Totally agree, of course by agreeing, that is totally, isn't it?

    All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    and talking of eyes [you chose the right one, lets face it the only one Gary] heres a very simple one

    the iris is a stone fill given a bit of concentric wave - it looks rather like my own [except my eyes are grey with orange flecks] what would I do without myself as a model...

    If nobody posts in this thread it's going to go away. And it has been with us for some time since Simon started it years ago.

    C'mon folks. What are you up to???

    I hope not Gary. It still gets a lot of page views. I think most people just prefer to open new topics to showcase their best work. After all they spent a lot of time working on them so itīs understandable they want to focus and discuss it in a dedicated topic of their own. But thereīs still people posting here, and thereīs some interesting work in progress being shown. With that said iīm certainly guilty for not posting much lately. Iīve been spending my time testing ways to implement some stuff in Xara sites like Google fonts and some scripts. Anyway hereīs some work iīve done in Xara recently:

    This is a simple layout i created in Xara to showcase some photos of a recent trip.
    Pictured below are the index and a full photo page.

    It would indeed be sad to lose this thread. The greeting card company has just taken the last batch of my designs, so I'm playing with these, based very loosly on William de Morgan's tiles. I want to try for the iridescent look but am not yet sure how..........

    Those are really pretty Penny, I like the lighter ones the best.

    Here is what I have been experimenting with this morning (most definitely a work in progress!) I am trying to capture the look of steam floating up and forming letters. I am using the shapebuilder and eraser tools for this, but I think my technique needs more refining and I think a background with less gray in it might make the steam look better.
