I’d like to think I had a part in encouraging Christian to start his blog too. To top it off, we’ve now been in two local publications. Also, I may have mentioned a couple of times now, we are getting close to having our first book done and our Zine is a week away from being printed. (That’s not including Christian’s book which should be out next month). Continue reading “Physical Objects”
