Layout, graphic design, drawing, and other creative work
February 2019: I like to vary my work to keep things interesting. Sometimes I'm writing, sometimes I'm doing layout or webdesign, sometimes I'm taking photographs, and sometimes I'm stitching a cushion from an original design for a craft magazine.
