Begin at the beginning

Another busy week of work in all it’s many and varied forms. I had a work commitment over the weekend which meant I spent Monday and Tuesday catching up. However, catch up I did and yesterday I planned out some new studio samples. As ever they are top secret but I’m really pleased with the […]
