About sixty people have visited this Journal since I politely requested that each visitor send me an e-mail and tell me their name.

With any luck both will be ready for the Uk Web and Mini Comix Thing at Stepney Green in 17 days time. Speaking of which, the organiser of this fabulous event has kindly reviewed some of my work at his website.
‘David Baillie rules!’
I’m quite chuffed with that.
