    Default So long, and thanks for all the fish!

    Hi all

    As some here may know I have recently moved across to the Mac OS environment. Itís early days but so far so good - super fast and smooth operation, slick interface, etc. Itís not been without some hair pulling and frustration though, mainly down to different keyboard shortcuts and getting to grips with things like ĎFinderí, the equivalent to Windows file explorer.

    Iíve installed the Affinity apps and few other tools and resources, and now all setup for my new graphical adventure. Iím only a hobbyist, but I do have some grandiose ideas for the future! ;-)

    Anyhow, Iím in the process of going through old Windows hard drives and came across a folder full of bitmap copies of .xar files. Some of the images were created solely for the monthly TG scribble challenge.

    I still have my Windows laptop handy but to build up muscle memory, Iíll mostly be immersing myself in my new setup from now on. I'll still pop back for the monthly scribble challenge as thatís not app/platform specific, and probably post the odd (frog) photo or two! I also want to keep tabs on Ernie's DŁrer drawing (hope he's ok with the terrible floods).

    So without further ado, here are a few final fishy related doodles arranged in a grid format.

    I'll raise a glass to you all. All the best and au revoir - bye for now!

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