Not sure if this is a Good Thing or a calumny, but it’s progress of a sort.
The new iPad arrived yesterday, and I’ve been playing with Adobe Illustrator Draw, attempting to actualize an idea I’ve had for a few months.

And wont’t it be fun for all of us!
Who next will float up out of the soul of the stone . . .
