I’ve made it! After all these years Xara have added a selection of my vector artwork to their galleries.!
Seriously though. I’m grateful to Xara for this, for their software and for their help and support over the years.
Xara designer pro is a fantastic bit of vector software. I find it much faster than Illustrator and it even does web sites. If you have a PC it is well worth checking out.
Happy New Year of the Sheep!
… or is that goat? From a language point of view, sheep and goats are the same in Chinese. It’s the same word as they’re just variations of the same animal; a goat is basically a sheep up a mountain!
Regarding the Chinese zodiac, people born in the year of the Sheep are thought to be peace-loving, thoughtful, and kind, but with a tendency to be overly anxious, not very well organised, and a bit pessimistic! If you were born in the year of the Sheep (your age in this lunar year is divisible by 12) then it’s your year, starting today, February 19th 2015. Get out there and shake your fleece (or whatever it is sheep do).
The wonder of Chinese New Year is that it creeps up on you just when you thought your ‘new year, new you’ resolutions had all gone to pot, giving you the opportunity to have another go. So Happy New Year! Here’s a little GIF, proving that ‘you are what you think’ … so make them good thoughts.

So how did you get on with our little love gift to you last year?
Well it’s back! Love Pong now has sound and a single-player option (to test your compatibility with technology instead of a human being) for those of you who prefer to play without the interference of someone telling you you’re doing it wrong.
Click on the image to play Love Pong in the browser
It’s also available from the Chrome Web Store, Google Play and Firefox Marketplace. So get some practice in before Valentine’s Day.
And it’s FREE … because we believe love shouldn’t cost. If it does, you should perhaps reconsider your idea of what love is. (Free relationship advice too! … You’re welcome.)
Apparently my art is inspirational. Nice to know
Thanks to Xara for featuring me in their newsletter. (There are also some good deals on some of the software I use.)
