It’s New Year’s Eve as I write this, the perfect time for little reflection on the departing year. And although my blog has been a little neglected, the annual reviews are still coming – this is the 8th I’ve done so far. My overriding memory of 2014 is that of variety. Whereas 2013 was mainly […]

Mark Burvill‘s final message to FOTB (made with his new found skills from my CreativeJS workshop) FOTB was awesome this year, and it looks like this will be the last, at least in this guise. I’m sure that John will do something just as awesome next year 🙂 It was an intense time for me […]
